Funny how Ms. Hypersensitive-to-all-tech managed to bear the agony of TV cameras.

Oh god the "wireless is making me sick" people. I don't doubt that these people are suffering from some sort of pain but wireless isn't the cause. Aluminum foil doesn't magically protect you from it!

We recently had our AC company come over to do a routine check on our home systems. They tried to sell me on getting some electro static filter that would scrub 98% of all dirt from the air. I looked at him, blinked, and asked why I'd want that. I mean, if we remove every single bad thing from our environment, our immune system drops and we become weak.

This woman is weakening her body in the long run. We need balance. Too little is bad- too much is bad.

She might be single but she's might be allergic to semen like that woman who died of anaphylactic shock after taking it from a dog a few months back.
 
2012-09-27 01:50:00 PM
It could be the gas mask, or it could be the GIGANTIC FOREARM!!
 
2012-09-27 02:30:45 PM
...and of course she's an anti-Smart-Meter Nut.

These people fall somewhere between Moon Landing Deniers and UN Highway Sign Believers in the continuum of stupid.

Aluminum foil covers part of her living room wall to block a cable box inside. She has no reservation about wearing a gas mask on the rare occasion she steps outside to get groceries.

So they're all living in some special hotel that caters to fark-wits.

Who the hell is paying for that??

"It's actually a full-time job," she says about her plan to stay healthy. Insurance rarely covers her expenses, so she's relying on savings. "Which is why I'm currently applying for disability," she said, "because there's no way I can work in my previous career."

What she really needs is some extra strength brain meds and psychotherapy.

Oliver said even from inside her home she can feel the radio frequencies constantly emitted by the digital meter

Yikes.

Indeed, it wasn't always so for Lewis, who is 53. Years ago, she worked as a speech pathologist in Miami until, she says, a bicycle accident triggered her current condition.

I'm going to guess she wasn't wearing a helmet.

I wonder if the GEDoctors who use their professional expertise to diagnose everyone with a disease that doesn't involve spurting blood as a faker are faking their ignorance?

Get her to grow her own food. She'll shed this sh*t pretty quickly.
 
2012-09-27 03:12:02 PM
Guess what? You're still going to die, lady.
 
2012-09-27 03:25:33 PM
Aren't gas masks, celophane, aluminum foil and the like, all modern conveniences as well? If you're going to be a luddite, go full luddite and play in the dirt like a medieval peasant.

Indoor air is usually much worse than outdoor air, actually. Also almost all dust is just shed skin so really you're not getting any benefit from snorting your husband's former arm skin.

Scanning article to find where she's requesting more tax-payer's money so that she doesn't have to lower herself and "work"...

"Which is why I'm currently applying for disability," she said, "because there's no way I can work in my previous career."


Yup. No surprises here...

Ahhh, lifetime disability. Crafty, she is.

How the crap does a bicycle accident cause all that? What, did she fall and scrape her brain? Jeez

Many scientists doubt the claims of sensitivity to radio waves.

Well, how surprising!

In blind tests with people claiming to be very sensitive, nobody has been able to prove sensitivity to wireless/EM radiation. Oops.

Can we just blame this on Fartbongo and get it over with?
 
2012-09-27 03:32:51 PM
probably allergic to latex so you always get to raw dog it.
 
2012-09-27 03:34:07 PM
I clicked to see if this was my old college dorm-mate. It's not, but could be. She sounds just as whack.

The girl was allergic to everything. EVERYTHING. Which, fine, if you keep your allergies to yourself. But no, it is not reasonable when sharing bathroom space with 40 other women to expect everyone else to live your organic, scent-free lifestyle.

BTW, I never saw the girl so much as sniffle, or pop out with a single hive, despite our wicked, perfumey ways.

Guess what lady?

You are still gonna die.

What's analprophylactic shock? The only safe way is bare-back.

This is the one aspect of the story that I can't see railing on. Mental illnesses are serious issues. I'm certainly not qualified to say if her condtion is real or not, but no one can deny that their actions are absolutely bizzare.

"Some people call me courageous," she said. these words have been uttered by no one... ever.

someone drum up the attention whore pics....

Ok, this is better than any headline I could have come up with as I came here to do just that.

Well done. +1

HOW TO CURE THIS biatch

Anxiety treatments using cognitive behavioral therapy. It's the kind of stuff that hypersensitive advocacy people hate because every time one of their members goes to look into it they never come back.

Yup. She should try to have another bike accident and see if she can get the crazy to fall back out of her head.

Didn't you read the article? This woman has to use iron oxygen tanks, the aluminum ones are too moderny for her.
 
2012-09-27 03:39:11 PM
FTFA: "I have cast iron tanks - not aluminum," she's careful to point out.

Also FTFA: Aluminum foil covers part of her living room wall to block a cable box inside.

//Al - the most abundant metal in the earth's crust. You just gotta love it.

she can't use aluminum oxygen tanks because...something but that didn't stop her from wrapping anything vaguely electrical in her apartment with aluminum foil.

Assuming those are her only hangups she isn't as high maintenance as most american women

What I'd love is for the city to turn off the wireless broadcast of the meters outside the motel for a few months but not tell anyone, then keep records while seeing if the insane people still claim they can "feel the broadcasts".
 
2012-09-27 03:43:04 PM
Reminds me when the electric company came here to install the wireless meters, when the tech started putting it in I ran and put on a tinfoil hat - he looked at me and just busted out laughing.

2012-09-27 03:43:50 PM
OMG, I know someone just like that. She makes this sh*t in her backyard and "gifts" it to people, hospitals, cell phone towers, etc.

She also consumes small amounts of Borax every day to combat the "mind controlling effects" of the fluoride in the tap water, even though our city's tap water isn't fluoridated, and complains about symptoms that match those of chronic Borax poisoning. Of course, she contributes those symptoms to modern technology, thus reinforcing her delusion. It's very sad, really.

There is nothing sadder than someone so alone, that they make up medical conditions to get attention.
What's annoying is that there is an extremely easy way to prove it.
Blindfold her. Get a toaster. Plug it in a fake wall outlet, or a real one. Keep it random. Then push the lever. Record results, redo test. Sure, she might have memorize the order or something, but at least it's something.
Present the test to newspaper reporters, because if it was me, I'd be afraid of being called a nutjob.

Heck, grab a radio, turn it on, record results. Turn off radio, record results. If she only reacts when the radios on, then it's not radio waves.

So, did Heinlein invent this kind of crazy when he wrote "Waldo" or was he observing this kind of crazy at the time and just inspired by it?

It's not my arm I have been, well, let's just say, exfoliating..
