Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS)

I went to see my rehab doctor who also uses the Qi thing to monitor my body.

He suggested me to use 備長炭 to shield myself against radiation from the computer because I am hypersensitive to radiation.

I know I am very well-endowed.  I know I am sensitive to qi.  I know that every time I had an MRI scan my body will fall into pieces.  However, this is the first time somebody tell me that I am hypersensitive to radiation.  8-O

Came across this posting and the concept of Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), which absolutely reminds me of some experience I had earlier on in the year...

Home Wireless network:

My neighbors wanted to split the cost for my internet connections.  To save a buck or two, I set up a wireless network in my room so that they can share it.

After the neighbors were gone, I turned the wireless off and I had this feeling that something is "cleared."  Like what many others have mentioned.

Battery charger

I wanted to recharge my batteries and plugged in the charger.  When it started charging, I felt something strange... just wired and not very nice kind of feelings.  Afterwards, every time I charge the batteries, I will get out of the room, move away and some hang somewhere else.


I used to be able to have the TV on in the background and do my thing on the computer.  I don't know starting from when... sometimes, I will have to turn it off and it will feel much better.

In addition, if I get too close to TV, sometimes, I will have to walk back some distance before I feel comfortable enough.


I remember vividly the day right before I went into the psychiatric ward the second time.

At some point, this voice must have told me to shut all electronic devices down... including the computer that locates right next to where my head is next to my bed.   (Bad thing... now it seems...)

My sister who also lived in Flushing came checked on me because my mom was worried.

I would not open the door.

When I finally opened the door and when she wanted to go online to check on some office work, I would not allow her to turn it on.

Maybe, she eventually got it switched on or maybe not.  Forgot already.

In retrospective, one thing I would say is... perhaps... my voices and delusions were right along the way? 8-O lol sigh

Cell phone

I am one of the last person on this planet without a cell phone and, to be honest, I don't really like handling cell phones unless necessary because there is something I could feel.

For all these years, my mother and everyone else has been trying to pursuad me to use a cellphone.  My excuse has always been... I am already in front of a landline and on the computer the entire day.  Why do I need a cellphone?  8-O lol

If I am really EHS, maybe this is a good thing that I followed my intuition and resisted the peer pressure? 8-O lol

Of course, there might be one day when I really need to get a cellphone.  At that point, guess I would have to really make sure I don't use it unless necessary.

When did it start?

Maybe I was born sensitive to begin with.  However, I suspect that it was not until the accident in June 19th, 2007 when the hypersensitivity got intensified.... guess... the change in the energy field might have resulted in some changes in the magnetic field in my body? God knows and.. whatever.... 8-O lol

So how am I dealing with using computer right now?

Before I get 備長炭, from last night on, I found this towel containing the ingredient called 竹炭, and I hang the towel right before my chest... sort of looking like what you do when trying to feed babies.... 8-O lol

Does it make me feel better?

I guess... sort of... regardless.

At the same time, another question I have...

If there really is such thing called Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), what it means is that Electromagnetic fields could have impact on people.  Does it mean the non-EHS are not affected by then just because one is not hypersensitive enough to experience its immediate impact?

Seroquel withdrawal

I have a theory-- a lot of things I experienced in the past two years have something to do with Seroquel... even with the qi theory applied...

Following are some of the physical symptoms I think might be related:
  1. Esophagus spasm, 
  2. Dry mouth: so dry that the walls of esophagus would stick together, 
  3. The never ending coldness coming out from all over the body, the head, the mouth and ears, nose, and ears at times
  4. The bouts of hot flashes... 
  5. The cycling between hot and cold... provided... not yet menapause 
  6. Sleep problems
  7. Shaking of the body
  8. Yawning and tearing
  9. Sneezing
The coldness and yawning thing I still can not shake after almost 1.5 to 2 years... I think... Hope I could shake the ice-age at yawn off soon...

A google search returns many results from patients going through similar kind of complain...

At the same time, apparently, many other drugs could give you similar kind of experiences.. legal or illegal such as cocaine.

God bless us all going through or having gone through the withdrawals or dosage changes of any.

Hopefully, soon we all shall see the light in the end of the tunnel just as many others who were also in the tunnel before...

Cold chills


The hotspring of Beitou 北投露天溫泉

Yesterday, I went with my family to 北投露天溫泉 or the blue Sulfur hotspring (青磺泉) of  Beitou... to 泡湯...

Theoretically, blue sulfur hotspring is supposed to be good for  skin diseases, gout, and muscle aches.

Nice place to hang and economical... 40 Taiwanese dollar for general admission... less than 2 US dollars that is... public bath, though, meaning... you share it with everyone else...

You have a good 2 hours to spend in there.  It should be sufficient amount of time since it is commonly suggested that one should not stay in for over an hour.

Personally, every time I sense it is over the limit of my body, I will get out of the water and do some of my swinging thing on the outside.  Might look pretty strange to the others... yet... ain't like they are gonna remember me...

In terms of ventilation, impeccable ventilation provided since it is open air...

The only issue I see with this location is... the lack of disability access.

First of all, them stairs were scary... slow and steady... I was able to move myself eventually down and up.  Not quite sure how people on wheelchair could get in.... At the same time, for the dressing room... it would have been nice if they could set up a larger dressing room for people with special needs.

Regardless, a great place to visit for your health benefits and an entertaining experience, too.

At the same time, base on commonsense, hot bath in hotspring somehow should also be beneficial for the flow of qi... 行氣... and should be good for my body conditions. 

Can't quite tell you whether it helped... though I suspect that it might have based on . One thing I could tell you is that, even though the temperature of the water is much higher than the body temperature... in that kind of circumstances... I could still feel the coldness coming out of my body at points.... 

Slightly schizophrenic 輕微的精神分裂

Went to see the psychiatrist today...

Told him that I am on a qua of 25 mg...

"So little?" So he commented.

"Ya... so little.  Do I still need to be medicated since I am taking so little meds?"

"Do you still have hallucinations?"

"Ya.  They pop up once in a while."

"You still need meds.  Maybe you should go on with the whole pill."

"No... I don't want to because, on days when the qua is bigger... I am all zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz the entire day."

"You still have 輕微的精神分裂 (mildly or slightly schizophrenic?).  Keep your meds."

Walked out from the office... so I thought to myself...

輕微的精神分裂.... mildly or slightly schizophrenic?

Wow... isn't it so wonderful... only slightly....really nice...

I was all excited and I got home happily announce the news... except for... oops... other people seem to be seeing it differently... more or less like... "Oh... so sad... schizophrenia..." 8-O

Anyways, I am happy about being mildly or slightly schizophrenic as opposed to anything more than mild or slight.

I want to try my best to keep it mild and slight.... wishing for one day... when all symptoms could go into remission all the way till I stop kicking at the age of 90+ years old living a good life and in good health... 8-O lol

Whatever it takes... even if it means I have to let go all conventional pursuit in etc.

This is a perfect example why sometimes it is better to have less.... 8-O lol
