Woodstock icon Joni Mitchell is diagnosed with a rare and little-understood condition called Morgellon’s Disease, a strange illness characterized by creepy, crawling sensations on and under the skin, sores, and unidentifiable filaments emerging from the sores. It also gives the sufferer fatigue, short-term memory loss, and difficulty concentrating. This condition has prevented Mitchell from travelling, performing, or even recording in recent years.

“I haven’t been doing much lately because I’ve just come through about seven years of a flattening kind of illness, Mitchell says in an interview with The Star in 2013. “I’m not cured but I’ve found a helpful physician way outside the box. Western medicine says this doesn’t even exist; it’s a psychotic disease. It’s not.”
