In July, 1989, she became sick with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) following a flu-like illness. She has had several partial remissions and relapses. One partial remission was for nine months following a round of tetracycline in 1990. Another partial remission was from '92 to '03, which she credits to a combination of pharmaceuticals, including amantadine, thyroid hormones, Pemoline, and Wellbutrin. In September, 2003, she relapsed to being bedbound. In 2005, she started IV ozone treatments, which would improve her health, but every time she stopped, she would relapse. She has urged the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to investigate IV ozone therapy.[4]

ME/CFS - An acronym that combines myalgic encephalomyelitis with chronic fatigue syndrome. Sometimes they are combined because people have trouble distinguishing one from the other. Sometimes they are combined because people see them as synonyms of each other.

Chronic fatigue syndrome advisory committee (CFSAC) - (sometimes pronounced SIF-SACK) A US government advisory council that met twice per year, covering current topics related to Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Meetings usually lasted for two days and the results were presented to the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). After 15 years, on September 5, 2018, CFSAC's charter was not renewed by the Department of HHS, effectively dissolving the committee without notice or warning.
