Being Electrosensitive (in a microwaved world) – a story of EHS, and accepting loss


A Story of Ehs, and Accepting Loss

Name:  Stephanie Dickerson
Location:  Georgia, USA

How long have you been electrosensitive (and how long did it take you to make the link to EMFs?)My symptoms started in 2005, and I realised that I was electrosensitive in 2012.Your story:

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.

Around 2005 I started having debilitating insomnia and feelings of agitation; I could not relax. I tried everything to keep healthy, and considered many different reasons for my lack of sleep, headaches, anxiety, and general un-wellness.It never occurred to me that the home wifi, the cordless phone and our 2 cell phones had anything to do with my condition.For seven years this suffering and complaining went on, and continued to get worst.

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!

We left the wifi off and I started improving each day.Then school started, I was back to teaching, my happiest time, feeling so good! But then the school installed “high density wifi” in every classroom and I became desperately ill with heart pounding so hard I thought I would drop dead any minute, plus inability to think, weak, terrible digestion, strange chaotic vibrating inside, and also emotional issues as well.Without any accommodations for my wifi sensitivity by the school, I was forced to leave my job, losing all that goes with having a job one enjoys: fulfillment, daily activity, a life with purpose, friendships at work, not to mention the income and much needed retirement benefits, all lost.

As wireless has increased since 2012, I have lost family relations, friendships, my doctor, and my dentist of 18 years, leisurely shopping, movies, concerts, gatherings, traveling, planes, hotels, even camping now has wifi.
What you’d like your friends and family to know about your life now, and what you’d like them to do:
What helps most is being able to talk about ehs and all that goes with it, just like anyone would like to share their life experiences.EHS is my life now, day in and day out and talking about it is important to me.
What you’d like health professionals to do, based on your experience:We need health professionals to recognize the seriousness of the wireless radiation/health connection and accept it as real. We need accommodations, which means having non-wireless areas for us to get needed medical attention without debilitating exposure.
What you’d like politicians, and those in authority, to do:Politicians need to first recognize ehs as a functional disability, and make accommodations for us. More is needed, but that would be a start.

  1. Thank you for sharing your heartfelt story of loss through EHS Stephanie, but I feel we are asking for crumbs. We need this to be outed for what it is…a dangerous and unsustainable technology, capable of illness, death and total and literal annihilation of entire species. It does need to stop or at least be treated as a dangerous “luxury item” like a cigarette and other controlled substances.


  2. We need to keep blogging and sharing our stories. Here is mine. At 54, I could not understand why I was feeling so many symptoms layering up in my body and head. I was having insomnia and interrupted sleep disorder, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, pain, anxiety, brain fog, blurred vision, imbalance problems and on and on. After struggling and feeling like I was being electrocuted, I wanted to die. We have three amazing children. Dying was not an option. My husband found a device in our basement and covered it with foil, my symptoms went away. It was a “smart meter”, I am now healing, after three years, and my types of therapies and holistic health and wellness, little money spent. But I now speak out against smart meters, as they are bringing on these horrific symptoms. As well as the cellphones and wifi. I live in an old home here on Long Island, keeping my home my sanctuary, and I have slowly started to become more normalized now. But it hasn’t been easy and it hasn’t been quick. A supplemental regimen is imperative, detoxing and breathing along with meditation and “earthing”. We can overcome this severe allergy. Mine started out with chemical sensitivity and morphed into electromagnetic sensitivity. Allergy to garlic came around 45, then the chemicals around 52. It has been a long ride, but I stayed strong and resolute and am now going to the movies, shopping malls, libraries and restaurants. Our minds have the power to overcome most anything, and this is no different. We can heal. Get out the smart meters, ASAP, turn off the wifi, clear out the toxins and get back to a simpler life without burdening the body and the brain with wireless. Keep the bedroom a sanctuary. No digital clocks, no smart tvs, no cell phones or computers, NO charging of anything at night while trying to sleep and keep the router and printer unplugged at night. This is how life is going to be in the future and the future is here. This is a forced evolution of the human species and we must adapt. There is no other option, other then to be proactive in our own lives. Communities are cropping up where refugees are finding relief in homes set up for people with sensitivities. And this is a good thing. Morgan Spurlock had a show on CNN about this, check out “Inside Man” and his show about “Toxins” was amazing to see this on the mainstream news. We are all in this together, but we must keep our children safe and become educated, so we can help others in need. Takebackyourpower. It is time!
