    BTW that girl from another town (not LeRoy), the one who is still not doing well -- and from what I understood she was the first or one of the first to start showing symptoms -- she also suffers PEM on top of tics and seizures. Has limited phys activity not only because restricted by severe tics, but also because she gets exhausted after about an hour of any activity, including meeting and talking to people ...

    In the documentary, one of the girls said something like this (paraphrasing): there are the visible signs of the illness - the motor and voice tics and then there are the invisible things: exhaustion, pain in muscles and joints, sore throat (and more that I don't remember).

    silliness is the only way to cope with such lunacy!

    seriously, how can you get a contagious psychological illness EXCEPT by telepathy, like, Professor X "getting Jiggy" with yer superego, and giving you a psionic STD, or some such?
    complete bollocks is what that is! :p

    Oooh I see you haven't read the Malleus yet ! Educate yourself thus


    Isn't this exactly what estimable Dr Mechtler is saying is happening to these girls! This is the official line of Inquisition - "investigations" by the health officials into LeRoy outbreak concludes that 'their inflictions start as pure imaginations and manifest themselves in the body'.

    Work of the Devil plain and simple. :devil::devil:

    I would like to know if, like here in Australia, about that time a vaccine was being pushed that supposedly prevented cervical cancer. Of course only girls were given this vaccine, and even though the vaccine proved to be no more effective than any other vaccine.
    One major problem with any vaccination programs is that they don't assess the recipient for immune system strength before inoculation, (some people with lower level immunity for whatever reason, are much more susceptible to both the active agent being injected or ingested, and sometimes susceptible to the vehicle agents supposedly needed to deliver the active agent or both.
    Vaccinations aren't always limited to children which could explain why the older lady also displayed similar symptoms.
    Batches of these vaccines can also vary and there is no reason why a particularly toxic or contaminated batch may have found its way to Le Roy.
    It appears ludicrous even suspicious that this possibility was never considered, investigated or was quickly dismissed by the medical fraternity.
    I am not a conspiracy theorist but I don't just dismiss an argument when it stacks up either.
    The superstitious and totally hypocritical rubbish about mass hysteria reeks of a possible cover up !
    Can someone in Le Roy please ask these girls, or their parents, if they received any form of vaccination around that time.
