My name is Susan ( ), I reside at ( ), CA. I have had an smart meter on my home, on the bedroom wall, right near my headboard and my side of the bed, since May, 2011, placed there by San Diego Gas and Electric, for the purpose of reading my electrical usage. I am 59 years old and a recently retired teacher and volunteer director of a national nonprofit, the Center for ( ). I am 100% disabled, with an immune system and lung disorder. My home had previously been the safest place for me to rest and repair my immune system, per my physician orders.
I can only describe the experience of living with this smart meter on my home (and the ones in the neighborhood and beyond) as a living nightmare that never ends. My health has deteriorated significantly, in ways that are consistent with rf radiation illness, none of which I have had before the smart meter, including: ringing ears that almost never quit, sometimes to the point of severe pain; headaches on a continuous basis, sometimes sinus pain and inflammation to the point of crying most of the day from the pain; heart palpitations; dizziness, mental confusion and memory problems; a strong feeling of pressure in the head, followed by pain, when in the room where the smart meter is located. I have also, very disturbingly, developed electromagnetic sensitivities, which I did not have before either. This means that I cannot use a cell phone, computer, DECT phone set, and WIFI or be in the presence of these without shielding. The master bedroom can no longer be used by me. Even though I am disabled and do not have a lot of money, I have had to spend at least $2000 to try to shield myself and change out items in my home to follow physician advice. The shielding is not working well enough and my daily life and that of my family is severely disrupted.
I have lost the health I was regaining by being in my home and recuperating, and we have lost the use of the master bedroom and a portion of our yard, as we do not dare go near the smart meter. On two occasions, outside, I did, and suffered a severe sinus headache that lasted for days. I have asked San Diego Gas and Electric to remove the smart meter and they refuse. CPUC has denied that it could be a health problem. I am frightened and angry that the CPUC has authorized the installment of these dangerous devices. I know that these devices have ruined my health and all quality of life. I know that smart meters are ruining California. I recommend that all businesses and travelers avoid California until these meters are removed. My physician is very alarmed and even his requests have been ignored by SDGE and CPUC.
I feel like I am living in Nazi Germany or in Russia, during the Stalin era, being tortured daily by government action. I know of many others with these complaints now, and am very, very frightened for myself, for Californians, and for my country. I have nowhere to go to escape these meters and am very fearful that the signals may be turned up, per the SDGE plan I read about. I fear for all the living beings in this mesh network, including humans - especially the most susceptible, children, the elderly, the disabled; animals, and our plant life. We could disrupt life so excessively that we cease to exist on the planet, with this horrific, poorly conceived plan that has ignored current science. Examination of the smart meters in CA shows that there is severe danger, including DNA breaks and inability to repair DNA, cancer development, neurological problems, and leakage from the blood-brain barrier.
STOP THE DEPLOYMENTS. ALLOW OPTING OUT IMMEDIATELY FOR THOSE WITH HEALTH COMPLAINTS OR CONCERNS. REVOKE AUTHORIZATION FOR WIRELESS METERS AND ISSUE AN ORDER TO REMOVE ALL THOSE INSTALLED, IMMEDIATELY. EXPLORE THE OPTION, CAREFULLY, OF FIBEROPTIC OPTIONS.
I ASK GOVERNOR BROWN TO HELP WITH AN IMMEDIATE EXECUTIVE ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH ALL OF THE ABOVE.
