Med Frenzy

Hidden corporate practices and lax governmental controls cause a large population to become afflicted with an unknown skin disease, but physicians find no ailment and think their patients are psychotic. With years of research to find relief, a helpless and desperate victim finds the true cause of the disease, but until it can be proven, gets her retaliation by expressing her outrage at physicians attending a medical conference.

Hidden corporate practices and lax governmental controls cause a large population to become afflicted with a gruesome skin disease, but physicians find no ailment and think their patients are psychotic.

Kendra, a single lady, has her social life compromised when she encounters this disease that cannot be diagnosed. She experiences much evidence that parasites are her problem, but anti-parasite medications don’t work and a plethora of medical professionals deny her claim and send her away to find her own remedies.

While unable to get medical help, she endures several episodes of bugs biting her, crawling under her skin, showing up as a rash, and invading her home. She does her best to cover this up with all those she meets except for a confidant girlfriend who tries to advise her. She struggles with this affliction for years, finding her own means of relief, while tempering an anger towards the medical profession and those responsible for her suffering.

In the world of a small Research Foundation, the Center for Disease Control and Big Pharma, the identified fibers of the ailment are thought to be man made, a genetically engineered species for a specific purpose. The true cause of this disease is not being disclosed, there is conjecture of a cover-up, and the perpetrator is too big and protected to take on legally.

While going to several doctors and trying to live a normal life, Kendra continues to meet single men, some of whom are connected with the medical profession. She meets a dentist, a podiatrist, and an exterminator, and some of their antics provide comedic relief for an otherwise serious problem.

She becomes tired of dealing with people in the medical field, but meets and falls in love with a businessman who turns out to be the head of a medical staff. Expressing her outrage, through him she gets an opportunity for retaliation when she is asked to speak at a national medical conference and unexpectedly verbally attacks the physicians in attendance for violating their oath to help people.
