July 8th - Update and doctor's appt.'s

Hi,
Sorry I haven't written in a few days. We were very excited to go camping this past Friday with our children. We drove to "Our Ponderosa" campground, near Ipperwash Beach to do some family camping. As we took our spot in the campground, we looked up and looming overhead - WIND TURBINES!!!! I had forgotten that they were there. It was ironically funny that last year we were admiring them as we camped, thought they were beautiful in a way. Watched them spin over the berm and discussed with our family how "cool" they were. This year, we were disappointed to be near them when we were trying to "get away"....All turned out okay as these were a much, much smaller version than the ones near our home, and a large hill seperates the campground from the wind turbines, so we did not hear them much, and we did not feel them either. While I did not experience the ear popping that I have felt in the past when we left our home, I did not experience any symptoms either. I was quite excited that we all slept well and seemed to experience no side effects while camping in our trailer until Monday. Some people have expressed to me that since trailers are on top of the ground the vibration effect is lessened and I have heard that many victims find comfort and ease their symptoms by sleeping in trailers, tents or sheds outside their homes.

On our return from camping, within an hour of returning home, my headache and ear ache did return. Once again, it came without warning, and to my knowledge, I was not thinking about the wind turbines at all at the time....I was actually in Dealtown picking up a box from a neighbour when the pain struck me, a sharp pain in my ear and head.....
On Tuesday morning, I woke to an extremely sore lower back and pain in my eyes. They feel dry and like they are almost sitting out of the sockets...My husband experienced the same eye problems and described it as feeling like it was scratchy and itchy as well. Our five year old also complained of a very sore back, which I thought was odd because I had not yet mentioned my back issue.

This morning, both my husband and myself again experienced the issue with our eyes, and my son continued to complain of back pain. Mine was quite bad at bed time last night (around 11'ish), but seemed better this morning......

I was finally able to reach the pediatrictians office and get a person (I called at least 50 times and the answering machine would not allow me to leave a message to schedule my three year olds' appt.) The person told me they are booking appt.'s into September but that I could not book until the end of July as their calendar was not ready yet. I could not leave my name on a list, or on a cancellation list for my youngest to be seen even though I explained the circumstances. So, the earlies my younest will be seen regarding his strange behaviours, vomitting (which has stopped), nosebleeds (which have also stopped) is SEPTEMBER. We have been trying since January to get him seen.

I made appointments for all of us with our family doctors and were not able to be seen until the end of July. I realize that medical records are important, but quite frankly, it seems as though it is a waste of time when the doctor's have no knowledge of wind turbine issues and are at a loss to determine causes...... I have not had another instance of the internal vibration and I hope to never experience it again.

The MOE is apparently investigating in the area, and my neighbor did go to see her doctor regarding her headaches and her husbands....it will be interesting to hear how that appointment goes.

I was told by a neighbor that more adjustments were made to the turbine closest to us and that it has not been running and appears to be off a lot of the time. This could be contributing to some of the relief we are experiencing. Now that the leaves are on the trees, I can not easily see the turbines out the windows, I can see the one to the rear of us right now and it is turning very, very slowly as it is a calm day. My eyes are feeling better as the day goes on, and my headache is very slight today, barely noticable...

Take care all,

Hi Nik

Your comment "Some people have expressed to me that since trailers are on top of the ground the vibration effect is lessened and I have heard that many victims find comfort and ease their symptoms by sleeping in trailers, tents or sheds outside their homes." is particularly interesting to me. It ties in with my own opinion regarding 'standing-wave-resonance' of infrasound and low frequencies affecting large conventional residences. I've just submitted my opinions to the Environmental Registry. You may be interested in them. I have them online at .. http://www.algonquinadventures.com/waywardwind/index.htm

Thank you very much for the information, I will definately check out your link. It is sad to say that one women I spoke to actually takes her blanket and pillow out to the shed and sleeps amongst the mice and insects because this is the only way she can get away from the vibration she says....

If you have backpain, it might be your kidneys. I'd get a live-blood analysis. Kidneys clean the blood & get it back together & EMF's mess up the bloodcells. It's also related to allergies to what you breath, mold, dust... I don't believe that the hospital has the best solutions for kidney damage/strain. Personally, I'd eat some raw, or rare-cooked organic kidneys. May have to order it. I've seen it revive kidneys in ways MD's could only dream of.

as for sleeping in the shed. I'd rather do that in a heartbeat, than be exposed to EMF's.
