Some times I hear from others, well meaning family and friends who say, how can you do this? Why don’t you stop if it bothers you so much?
This is what I have written in response to those questions.
First and foremost, I can’t stop any more than you could continue breathing if your heart stopped.
I agree I have been fighting that sense of ” I can’t do this any more ” for some 20 plus years. Its not a easy road that I or other sensitive’s have chosen or been forced to travel this time around. When I am hit with a major solar flu attack, I have to remember that I am not near as young or healthy as I was back in 1980 when all this took place.
And sometimes even I need to check in with medical professionals.
I am not in any condition to go into contractual labor to herald activity in the Sierras or other Cascade volcanoes. I am not in any condition to go through another event at St Helens large or small. I am not in any condition to handle CHILE emotions from those closest to me, friends and family or lose another friend to suicide.
I am grateful I at this time, have a sound heart and no blood pressure issues and pray this will continue. When my ribs hurt I say, what did I lift? Before I say, its either Oceania L and or Dominos R ribs.
When my lower back hurts, I have to stop and think, did I move wrong? Change shoes? Before I say, Oh, its likely the Wasatch or New Madrid Fault or Landers quake zone.
When my heart kicks in and goes into sharp jabbing pains, gratefully I know its likely S CA into MX and or MX proper but if it gets out of hand, I will be the first one to seek medical attention.
I am tired of walking into walls, bumping into furniture which are signs for both Oregon and Washington and Chile * Bolivia and Argentina *
I am tired of being tired. Waking every 2 hours or finding myself unable to sleep at the mercy of the environment. I am tired of hurting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for over 35 years and I am tired of never ever having a peaceful space since the sound continues both day and night since May 1976.
But through all this, I am grateful, that I have the opportunity to help others to understand they may be reacting to quakes, volcanoes and solar events. That they are not crazy or delusional or any other number of names I have been called. They need to know they are not alone. That is why I began this blog and offer free email updates which are all part of ” The Charlotte King Effect” ©
I am humbled by the emails I have received, many from others who also suffer from bio sensitivity and until they found ” my pioneering work ,” thought they were alone. Well you are not alone and I will continue to do all I can to find answers to why we are feeling these events and what if anything we can do to protect ourselves from these symptoms that at times, threaten our very lives. I will also, when I feel it’s necessary, make predictions based on past experience and these same feelings, but I will Never, make a prediction that is based on fear, and panic.

Thank you for your candor, Charlotte! I want to also make a point here that our bodies run on electrical current, small as it may be, and is affected by the changes in earth currents that, by the way, can and are recorded on sensitive, scientific equipment. Those of us with physical conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic migraines, heart arrhythmias, and other neurological pathologies can and do have their symptoms exacerbated during these changes in earth activities. In fact, we are all affected by these changes. It’s just that some of us are more sensitive than others and are able to put two and two together to realize what’s going on. But, you already know this.
I worked in the medical profession for over 30 years and have discussed some of this “sensitivity” with doctors. I can remember clearly one day chatting to a doctor while in line at the hospital cafeteria, who mentioned that everyone he talked to that day complained of being very tired and lethargic. I mentioned to him that I also noticed the same thing in everyone around me at work, including myself. I just happened to know that the earth was in the middle of an on-going, very large geomagnetic storm at the moment and mentioned this to him. He was very open to the idea that that may have been the cause of everyone feeling so lethargic that day.
Thank you very much Charlotte for enabling many of us to put two and two together. I can say, without doubt, you have opened my eyes to a new world around me.
Wonderful to hear such enlightened feedback from someone with Medical Background. I’ve tried to discuss this with my Doctor because of my lifelong sensitivities and he is totally unsympathetic. He solution was to send me for a Psychiatric assessment which I declined. I live in Australia and he also stated Australia doesn’t have earthquakes. At the time we had had over 100 earthquakes that month, but his mind was totally closed. I was seeking his advice for nausea and decided to tell him what the real reason was instead of just saying migraine. So now he thinks I am a complete nutter. Looking for another Doctor.

Hi Christina! Unfortunately, most doctors don’t have a clue and, frankly, if they’ve never read about such things in their medical journals, who are you for them to believe? That is the stark reality! I’m not at all surprised by the response you received from your doctor. Good luck with finding one with a more open mind!
Thank you so much Charlotte for your total dedication in the face of ridicule, pain and personal sacrifice. You are indeed a true pioneer who deserves a PHD in Applied Science for your 40 years of service in this much neglected area of bio-sensitivity to earthquakes. Words fail to express my own gratitude for your amazing research and your generosity in sharing it with those of us who have for decades felt so isolated and crazy because we have suffered these symptoms. You have my total support for anything you need and I am eternally thankful to you. Christina Eason retired Educator/ Lecturer at Australian Institute Applied Science. Brisbane. Queensland.
