A Story of Ehs, and Accepting Loss
Name: Stephanie Dickerson
Location: Georgia, USA
Since I discovered I am EHS, in 2012, I have had to accept loss; loss of my career, loss of my income, family, friends and so much more.
It seems every time I feel like I get used to my “new” restricted life, I must face yet another loss. As more places implement wifi, my world shrinks even more, until there is literally no where I can go comfortably.
It is impossible for non-ehs people to even comprehend the huge burden and the isolation that this condition creates, and the grief one experiences daily for all that has been taken away.
Finally, summer 2012, I had the summer off from teaching school and assumed I would improve, but instead, I became very ill.
It didn’t make any sense. I had nothing to do but rest, and rest didn’t help at all! It made NO sense.
How can you rest and not get better?
One day my husband happened to unplug the wifi, and I suddenly felt relief. I couldn’t believe it. My husband saw me relax. He saw me feel better immediately. Both of us were in shock!
