    Bailey & Seager

    Please please please help us. We are a family of 4, ages 52, 44, almost 4 & 2, having children so late is whole other heart wrenching story.

    We live in Sheffield, Vermont by 16 wind turbines. The closest is under 3/4 of a mile 5 are under a mile and all 16 are under 2 miles away. We are suffering terribly, my husband and I have all the signs of Wind Turbine Syndrome- (1) Sleep disturbance. Not simply awakened, but awakening in a panic (“flight or fight” response). (2) Headache. (3) Tinnitus. (4) Ear pressure. (5) Dizziness. (6) Vertigo. (7) Nausea. (8) Visual blurring. (9) Tachycardia. (10) Irritability. (11) Problems with concentration and memory. (12) Panic episodes associated with sensations of internal pulsation or quivering, which arise while awake or asleep. (This latter involving other, non-vestibular organs of balance, motion, and position sense.)

    Have also been put on anti-depressants + sleeping pills + motion sickness medication, and as per our Dr. have been told to not even try to work.

    The children are too small to articulate how they are being impacted. But when we get a lot of noise we see a definite change in their behavior and not for the better.

    How long will we have to wait for officials to admit there is a problem associated with living in too close proximity to wind turbines? Needless to say they will not tell us if our still developing children will have long term damage. In the mean time we are getting more and more ill.

    We desperately need to move. Wind Turbine Syndrome is no joke. /static/2013/the-face-voice-of-wind-turbine-syndrome-in-vermont/?var=wts

    Our hope was to get into a reasonably decent home that was why we original posted in gofundme asking for $90,000.00. In the hopes of covering the cost of a home moving expenses and all the other expenses that would be necessary.

    Winter is coming and we have to get out of here. The worst of the noise for us has begun. With the hopes for a home slipping away from us we realize an older mobile home is more realistic but at this point no where near in sight.
    We have gone through all of our savings and are flat broke. We have reduce to $40,000.00.

    We HAVE reached the point of desperation. We HAVE to move for the sake of our health and sanity.

    Please if you or someone you know could help us, we are desperate.

    I will do anything I can…God bless your little family. And get out of there no matter what it takes.

    This family needs to get out of there, and fast, before the effects from the turbines become permanent. From my experience, the distance between the turbines and this family should be NO less then 10 Km from any turbines.

    Just walk a away! NOT easy, I know! But you need to for the health of all of you, especially your little ones.

    Wishing you all the best, from someone who has been in your place and walked in your shoes.

    We need a new word for Green commercial wind turbine renewable energy. This picture brings to mind the science fiction film Soylent Green. This picture depicts the future of commercial wind and the residents who live around them. Noise pollution, shadow flicker, property loss, devaluation and poverty.

    The wind turbines have no effect on the greenhouse and create a loss of revenue where the population has to eat processed food rations because the government spent all the resources on renewable energy credits for wind turbine contractors, including “soylent green”.
