Wow, that hits close to home -- and I'm not just referring to those terrible eye infections I used to get from sleeping with my extended-wear contacts. It's funny that the two states mentioned here were Cali and Tx.
The Pythium suggestion is interesting too. Scabdraggr would have good input on this, with his background.
But yeah, something along these lines. Until somebody shows me how borrelia bacteria is capable of manifesting into the bizarre macro skin artifacts that we see, I suggest that Morgellons is the fungal-like opportunistic infection that comes after the lyme. Perhaps we will learn that lyme disease isn't required of Morgellons hosts -- maybe parasites, drug use, or pesticide and solvent exposure is sufficient to provide a viable host environment.
