Jamison Graham Hill is an author and, prior to becoming stricken with severe myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), a bodybuilder and certified personal trainer. He is featured in the 2015 documentary, Forgotten Plague, by Ryan Prior and Nicole Castillo. In addition to writing a book on fitness, he has written articles for Ultra-FIT, Physique Magazine, ExtraFit Magazine, World Physique Magazine, and Inside Fitness.[1]

Hill first became ill with ME in 2010 following a case of mononucleosis in his senior year of college at Sonoma State.[2] His health gradually declined until he was bedridden and unable to speak or eat solid food. Slowly, his health is now improving.[1]

Hill's blog, Jamison Writes began as a fitness blog. After a three and a half year hiatus due to illness, Hill is continuing his blog, now writing about his experiences as a patient with ME. He states: "This site is dedicated to Jamison’s journey to regain his health and help others realize the seriousness of his disease and the devastation it causes."[1]

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.

Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) - A disease often marked by neurological symptoms, but fatigue is sometimes a symptom as well. Some diagnostic criteria distinguish it from chronic fatigue syndrome, while other diagnostic criteria consider it to be a synonym for chronic fatigue syndrome. A defining characteristic of ME is post-exertional malaise (PEM), or post-exertional neuroimmune exhaustion (PENE), which is a notable exacerbation of symptoms brought on by small exertions. PEM can last for days or weeks. Symptoms can include cognitive impairments, muscle pain (myalgia), trouble remaining upright (orthostatic intolerance), sleep abnormalities, and gastro-intestinal impairments, among others. An estimated 25% of those suffering from ME are housebound or bedbound. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies ME as a neurological disease.
