Jodi Bassett is an Australian writer, artist, graphic designer, and patient advocate.

Jodi contracted Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) in 1995 when she was just 19. She went from being healthy and happy one day, to very ill and disabled with the neurological disease M.E. the next.

When first ill, Jodi was reduced to 40% of her pre-illness activity level. Due to inappropriate medical advice leading to sustained overexertion (which causes serious and permanent bodily damage in M.E.), Jodi's illness quickly went from moderate to extremely severe. By 1999 she was capable of less than even 5% of her pre-illness activity level.

Severe M.E. patient from the Netherlands Ingeborg Geuijen has sadly passed away this month. Ingeborg was one of the very first people with M.E. I (Jodi Bassett) ever met and a huge inspiration for all the M.E. education and advocacy work I have done since then on HFME.

More of Jodi's books…
“The single biggest factor determining recovery and remission from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) at this point is undoubtedly appropriate rest in the early and/or severe stages of the illness.

The importance of avoiding overexertion in M.E. can not be overestimated.”
Jodi Bassett

“Some people are like Slinkies. They aren't really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.”
Patricia Briggs, Iron Kissed

“Great things are not accomplished by those who yield to trends and fads and popular opinion.”
Jack Kerouac

“I'm going to marry my novels and have little short stories for children.”
Jack Kerouac

“Comparing the bioavailability of all other oral vitamin C delivery with your oral liposomal delivery is like comparing a squirt gun to a fire hose. Not only am I convinced that the efficacy of Lypo-Spheric(tm) Vitamin C far surpasses any traditional oral vitamin C supplement, but my recent personal experience with it suggests that it may sometimes be better than IV injection.”
Thomas E. Levy, Primal Panacea

“Man's body was designed to function best with high blood and cellular levels of vitamin C - synthesised as needed by the liver. Due to an inborn error of metabolism, the vast majority of us no longer have the ability to make it, but that does not lessen our need for vitamin C or the benefits derived form it.”
Thomas E. Levy, Primal Panacea
