Pow­er­less to help

Daily Mail - - Career Mail -

My BEST friend’s grand­daugh­ter has suf­fered from elec­tro­mag­netic hy­per­sen­si­tiv­ity (EHS, Letters) for two years, mak­ing life very dif­fi­cult for both her and her mother.

ev­ery­one seems to want to be­lit­tle the con­di­tion and pre­tend it sim­ply does not ex­ist — but it does.

My friend can­not use a tele­vi­sion, com­puter, wash­ing ma­chine, elec­tric cooker or mi­crowave when her daugh­ter is at home. This causes nu­mer­ous ar­gu­ments and highly emo­tional up­sets.

My friend’s grand­daugh­ter has ap­plied to be re­homed but to no avail, which leads to a mis­er­able ex­is­tence for both of them.

It is high time this con­di­tion was recog­nised by a lot more peo­ple and some­thing sub­stan­tial done to help the poor suf­fer­ers of EHS. It is a very se­ri­ous con­di­tion and the prob­lems it causes need to be ad­dressed as soon as pos­si­ble. Mrs F. LEDGER, Read­ing, Berks.
