    Susan here. 69- but don’t feel like it. Most of my friends are in their 40s-50s and I can pretty much keep up with them or even out-do them. Grew up in northern New York state near the Adirondacks, about a 30-minute drive to Canada. Left the area in '75. Been living in Austin since 2007. Don’t like it here. Will be getting out of this crazy town later this year.

    I spend about 30 hours a week working in a periodontal office (hygienist), bathed in mega-bright overhead blue LED lighting, computer screens, and multiple wireless signals thruout the building. Ever since my office changed to LED lighting a couple of years ago, I’ve been noticing a steady slow decline in how well I feel. I know the only remedy is to quit. Will try to last until mid-June, then it’s all over. done. no more dental. ever. Dental has been very very unfulfilling anyway.

    While I can’t change the EMF bombardment at the perio office, I’ve taken what I’ve learned so far and have improved the environment in my home. Changed the lighting. Low-level red/amber at night. Blue-blocking glasses. IRIS computer app. Use an ethernet cable. Don’t even own a TV.

    I feast my eyes on the sunrise as often as possible, mostly just on weekends. On weekdays I’m driving to work during sunrise or am already there so I miss it. Lunchtime at work is only about 20 minutes on a good day. Even less if my morning patients’ charts need narratives. I step outside if there’s time.

    CT consists of dunking my face in cold water and ending showers with cold. Spending extra time outside when it's cold, but can’t go out there naked. Might get arrested.

    Austin’s 5G and all the wireless routers in the neighborhood that stay on 24/7 are beyond my control. So I’ll be leaving town. Don’t like it here anyway.
    The plan is to get rid of stuff, load up my little SUV with necessities, and travel / car-camp as far away from cities and nnEMFs as possible. Perhaps then I’ll start feeling like my better younger self again.

    I’m also a massage therapist, movement coach, and personal trainer. Currently, my kettlebell group meets in the park. outdoors. in the morning SUNlight. It’s so much more enjoyable that way. Once out of Austin, I'll coach my PT clients online.
    After traveling around a bit, I'll settle back east closer to family, and specialize in coaching clients with Parkinson’s and other movement disorders. Started working with PD clients two years ago. It's so rewarding.

    Geneology- European descent. Mostly English, French, German (Alsace-Lorraine). That's all I know.

    So last week I resigned from my job with a month's notice. Now what?? I don't know. Will be in Austin for a few more months selling/donating my stuff, doing workshops, and deciding where to go next. It's scary, but exciting.
