I'm not an Aussie, I live in Florida. The news reports I've seen claim most of the people who have this in the US are teachers or nurses. My father thinks I'm totally off my rocker, so you are not alone in the everyone thinks I'm nuts department. I've removed all manner of weird fibers, black specks hard and tar like ones, things that look like spider webs, things that look like bugs ect. I don't save them, I try not to look at them any more. I just concentrate on getting them off and out of my skin. If you take your samples to the doc they will think you are crazy too.
I started doing oil pulling (see curezone forum), followed by brushing my teeth and inside of my mouth with soap. I feel this has help alot. I've just started the Beck stuff, see Zapper Forum . I shall let you know how that goes. I also do all the cleaning and oil on my body and rubbing the stuff out of my skin. I use alot of H202.
Notalone who was posting here is an Aussie. She hasn't posted in awhile, in one of her last post she mentioned rain, I hope is she is not where there is flooding.
