Dear reader here is my story,

I went to Alameda beach, in California August of 2009, I walked all over South Shore Beach. I went home and took some sand with me to use as an exfoliate because I did not think about what the sand could have in it, seemed like a way to relax.

On or about September 17th 2009 I ended up in the hospital because I was feeling like things were crawling all through my body, misdiagnosed by not just one but too hospitals with Scabies, Lice and possibly pin worm without a biopsy the staff just laughed at me at both Stockton Hospitals when I told them "this is not Scabies" covered from head to toe in Tungiasis. The internal parasite test's do nothing for Tungiasis, nor dose it show up in blood work.

After several visits to Alameda hospital the same thing I was just laughed at, told scabies was not all I had.... funny for them, when I almost died.

On or about 3/30/2011, I was refereed to expert Shelly Gordon, Shelly knowing I could not get a diagnosis because I had not left the US and because most of her patients have HIV did not want me in her office told me not to come back until I had a diagnosis, because Tungiasis can spread not only Bubonic Plague but also HIV. Due to her negligence the entire city of San Francisco has been exposed to Tungiasis possibly carrying Bubonic Plague because I was treated for that as well. With an Ectopic pregnancy, undiagnosed hypoglycemia and Tungiasis Shelly Gordon ignored my emails. After my ex called her serval times because I had fleas crawling out of my skin she still ignored me.

When I called the CDC they referred me to doctors who did not take my governmental insurance, they also told me they don't get involved until someone dies after countless emails and phone calls they did nothing! The San Francisco Health Department did nothing when I came in they told me they do not have a clinic. They exposed an entire city to Tungiasis which can carry almost everything.

Then I see expert Darwin Scott Smith later, after countless doctors just wanted me to go away tried to say I was crazy after I had to go through pysc eval to prove that I was not. Because there is no TREATMENT AVAILABLE IN THE US!!!!!!!!!!!

I NEED niridazole & a diagnosis WILL SOMEONE PLEASE SAVE MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also the mayor of Almeda did nothing to protect the people living there when I discovered it I sent her an email, I have documentation. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
