Quote from the New Yorker article: (https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2020/09/14/susanna-clarkes-fantasy-world-of-interiors?) "She has been given various diagnoses, including Lyme disease, Epstein-Barr virus, and chronic fatigue syndrome. Her most constant symptom has been overwhelming exhaustion, joined at times by migraines, brain fog, and photosensitivity, as well as by nausea, for which she now takes medication daily. At times, she said, bright sunshine has felt “like an oppression, a weight leaning on me”; she often retreats to a darkened room." Goes on to say that in the latter part of the 2000s she was bedridden and developed depression and agoraphobia.
