So says this individual (suspected of being a diligent warrior), moved by the story of a madman who built a chicken wire cage around his meters to stop them being changed (I can see that going really well when the whole condo building is disconnected by the utility). Of course, some of the people in Egypt were protesting with empty water bottles, or loaves of bread taped to their head.
I commend the property manager. I have a smart meter (live in San Diego area) and it is the most horrible experience of my life, bar none. I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO TAKE ANY MEASURES, EVEN DRASTIC ONES, TO AVOID THESE METERS BEING PUT ON YOUR HOMES. I am very sick from my smart meter, the utility won’t remove it. I cannot get even close to it without major sinus headache and pain in ears. Covered mine with aluminum foil to try to get some relief and JUST TOUCHING IT made me ill for three days (still ongoing today). Have had it for about 8 months, had symptoms I didn’t realize were from meter – sleeplessness (3 hours sleep per night, often) and shrill ringing in ears. Then, joint pain. Later much more, as the months progressed.
These meters are so dangerous that I must tell you my own life has been turned upside down due to the terrible health effects I have experienced, including: severe headaches and swollen, inflamed sinuses, dizziness and vertigo, ringing of the ears (to an extreme), cognitive issues (at times, it is hard to think and talk, can disorient, interferes with short term memory), heart palpitations, sleeplessness (getting 3 hours sleep a night), pain in the ears (ice-pick stabbing pains) that comes from inflammation of the acoustic nerve, teeth and gums hurting, facial pain, chills, a very uncomfortable feeling when near the meter, the new development of electromagnetic and rf radiation sensitivities (cannot use my cell phone without becoming ill, nor my computer without special shielding, nor be in the presence of DECT phone systems (cordless), nor be where there is WIFI or wireless internet – a disabling condition that is recognized in Sweden called electro sensitivity), and more. This fall, 2010, for the first time in my life, I developed a serious, large, rare and sudden rapid, volcanically-growing type of skin cancer on my face that can come from exposure to radiation, on the side of my face that faces the smart meter when I sat in bed reading for many, many hours, oblivious to the dangers. This cancer was cut out, leaving a scar on my face. My doctor can confirm all of the above.
THE UTILITY COMPANIES AND THE CPUC ARE PLAYING DUMB. THEY KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE SICK AND THEY DON’T CARE. MY UTILITY GOT $34,000,000 TO DEVELOP THE SMART METERS. DO YOU THINK THEY WANT TO FAIL? RESIST, WITH ALL YOU CAN DO – THE PEOPLE IN EGYPT ARE AN INSPIRATION.
