can’t leave her house because of an allergy to Wifi and mobile phones

The former nurse has to wear a shielded bed net on the rare occasions she leaves her home and can only visit places with poor mobile phone reception.

The debilitating condition has forced her to move home twice due to phone masts being built nearby and she now sleeps under a special net.

She hopes that speaking out about electrosensitivity will help people understand her unusual condition and be more sympathetic.

‘I have not seen friends and family for so long. I have had two visitors for half a day each this year. It’s heart-breaking really.

‘The only place I can go is Crewkerne or Lyme Regis as if I go anywhere else I get some serious symptoms.

They made a wrong turn at "allergy."

Synova said...

That word "allergy". I do not think it means what you think it means...

I suppose that it's possible that someone actually is sensitive enough to have reactions to radio waves. Maybe.

Someone call Chuck McGill.

Hearing AM stations on fillings in your teeth was a thing.

I've seen stories about something similar, how some people are affected by living next to high-voltage power lines .

She could sleep in the car.

I'm not sure if she needs a faraday cage or a tinfoil hat.

It is telling that she has had two visitors in a year. Those that know her best don't embrace her. Something else is going on, maybe in addition to a genuine sensitivity, maybe not.

Heinlein wrote Waldo in 1942 about a character sensitive to all the man-made electromagnetic radiation in the air. He had to live in a special orbit in a shielded environment. Basically a story about faith in technology.

Just like Chuck in "Better Call Saul."

ndspinelli said...

Amartel, Chuck is a complex and great character. The relationship between him and his brother is very real and superbly written and acted.

Amartel said...

That show is even better than the original it spun off from. Whatsitcalled? Oh, yeah, Breaking Bad. The characters are so real, the setting is real, the relationships: real. Makes you wonder why Hollywood spends so much time manufacturing unreal shite, and remakes of unreal shite, and political lectures dressed up as "reality," when there is so much actual entertainment to be found in realistic settings.

Amartel said...

And I looooved Breaking Bad.

Methadras said...

Bullshit.

I hope she doesn't listen to Mary Hart. Just sayn'

I think the guy who told me that Mary Hart's legs were insured for a million dollars was the same guy who told me that the emergency room pumped, like, 16 ounces of semen out of Rod Stewart's stomach.

Things were different before the internet.

The internet informs me that Stephen Hawking is 5' 7" tall.

I'm going to presume that's a rough estimate.

Mary Hart has front row seats @ Dodger Stadium right behind home plate. During the playoffs, Larry King sat next to her. I was often more fascinated watching those 2 rather than the game. I thought I might see Larry stroke out. Larry likes ice cream around the 5th inning. Mary wore slacks as best I could tell. Baseball is a slow game, lends itself to watching and discussing other activity.

ndspinelli said...

Amartel, Agree w/ all you said.

I wish this affected every annoying feminist and leftist.

rh, do you feel the electricity?

Better Call Saul is fabulous. The interplay between the brothers is brilliant.
