“The whole body vibrates like on a ship at stormy sea” (Germany)
Dec 28, 2010
Editor’s note: The following is a translation of a handwritten letter from a Wind Turbine Syndrome victim in Germany. The letter was sent to Thomas Jacob, Ostfriesland, Lower Saxony, Germany, on December 5, 2010. The author of the letter has asked to remain anonymous, for fear of reprisals. It is an imperfect translation, to be sure, but it gets the point across.
Dear Mr. Jacob,
Due to your appeal on the Internet, where you seek out concerned citizens in close proximity to wind turbines, I would like to describe briefly my (and our) symptoms, respectively.
With the erection of the bigger wind turbines here on the North Sea coast, I’m suffering, and some members of my family are suffering, from diverse symptoms like hypertension, dizziness, headache and insomnia—or, rather, sleep deprivation, which is extreme for me and one of my relatives because we can “hear” the infrasound as a vibration of our bodies.
We have one or more bass tones, 24 hours a day, which can’t be absorbed by anything—really, anything! Also, the whole body vibrates like on a ship at stormy sea.
We only hope the authorities get us out this extreme problem, after all, and let us still live on! It is a trip to hell!
Our appeal to the authorities: Immediate overnight shutdown of all wind turbines, infrasound noise measurements in dwellings and also in houses which are far-off from windfarms.
I would have taken part in the Berlin anti-turbine demonstration with pleasure, but my current state of health (Wind Turbine Syndome) does not permit it, anymore!
In hope that, nevertheless, everything turns to well, I remain with the best wishes for all.
An inhabitant of the North Sea coast, respectfully from hell on earth,
