Excerpt from a recent interview with Joni Mitchell in the Guardian, UK :
If Mitchell seems ornery, it may simply be because she is feeling better. Last year, the singer announced that she suffers from Morgellons syndrome, a rare skin condition. It’s a controversial diagnosis – many doctors deny that Morgellons is real, calling it delusional. “[It’s a] weird, incurable disease that seems like it’s from outer space,” Mitchell told the Times. “But my health’s the best it’s been in a while. Two nights ago, I went out for the first time since 23 December.”
“Garbo and Dietrich hid away just because people became so upset watching them age, but this is worse,” she said. “Fibres in a variety of colors protrude out of my skin like mushrooms after a rainstorm: they cannot be forensically identified as animal, vegetable or mineral. Morgellons is a slow, unpredictable killer – a terrorist disease: it will blow up one of your organs, leaving you in bed for a year.”
“In America … [doctors] send you to a psychiatrist,” Mitchell explained. “I’m actually trying to get out of the music business to battle for Morgellons sufferers to receive the credibility that’s owed to them.” Then again, this campaign will need funding.
It would be great to put Joni Mitchell together with Dr Staninger. We are working on getting Dr Staninger on her own TV Show and it would be a great opportunity for Joni Mitchell to join her. Together they could be a very powerful voice for Morgellons. The Hildegarde Staninger Foundation is set up to raise money for her research. She can’t raise money for Morgellons research as she already has the cure. The solution is to broadcast her message to those who are are in need and that vision is unfolding in an extraordinary way.
