Applying Discretized Light Cone Quantization, we perform the first calculation of the spectrum of true muonium, the μ+μ- atom, as modified by the inclusion of an |ee¯〉 Fock component. The shift in the mass eigenvalue is found to be largest for triplet states. If me is taken to be a substantial fraction of mμ, the integrated probability of the electronic component of the 13S1 state is found to be as large as O (10-2). Initial studies of the Lamb shift for the atom are performed. Directions for making the simulations fully realistic are discussed.
