Joni Mitchell found unconscious and suffering from Morgellons disease

I've learned two interesting facts about Joni Mitchell. One is that Taylor Swift was in talks to play Mitchell in a biopic role. And two, Mitchell, the famous folk singer, has Morgellons disease.

P robably most of the readers of Daily Stab do not know who 71 year old Joni Mitchell is. But if you grew up in the 70s and 80s it was impossible not to know her.  She was this folk singer-songwriter with a beautiful voice. Check out this YouTube video of her 1970 album Canyon to hear what I mean:

Her voice can make you cry.

Anyway, she was in the news today, because she was found unconscious.  She also claims that she has Morgellon’s disease. I say she claims has this disease because it’s “a mysterious illness that has been the subject of ongoing debate among medical researchers and patients”. You can read about the story here. The article says that Morgellon’s disease “is characterized by an array of skin symptoms, including sores, a crawling sensation either on or under the skin, and what the Mayo Clinic describes as “fiber-like filaments emerging from the sores.”   Gross.  If Taylor Swift has to play her in a biopic role, it’s not going to be pretty for her if she has to capture this part of Mitchell’s life.
