And so it begins... The hoarding of incandescents

And so it begins... The hoarding of incandescents

As you may know, incandescent light bulbs are being phased out starting in 2010 in favor of lower energy bulbs -- namely, compact fluorescents (CFLs).

The problem is, CFLs make me physically ill and I literally can't be in the same room as them for more than a few minutes.

After 5 minutes, I start feeling a little odd.

After 10 minutes, my eyes can't seem to focus well and feel strained, I feel a little nauseous, and I start feeling anxious inside like something is wrong.

After 15 minutes, a headache starts coming on, my vision is disturbed, my balance a little off, and I have muscle tremors.

After 20 minutes, I am literally desperate to get out of the environment and feel like something bad neurologically is about to happen. Whether or not something terrible does happen I don't know - I have never stuck it out to find out.

The above is what happens if the environment is exclusively lit with CFLs. If there are other sources of light - day light, halogen, incandescent, etc - I can last longer, especially if the CFL light isn't in my direct field of view.

Most people tell me that CFLs have been improved and the color and brightness are equal to incandescents. Others are quick to point out that they need to warm up for a minute. And still others tell me that CFLs simply don't cause migraines. Somehow, these doled out platitudes are supposed to magically make my problem disappear. I regard these statements are arrogant.

It's not the color temperature. It's not the warm-up time. And it's not the modern electronic ballasts. I have been around many different types of CFLs and frankly, NONE of them are acceptable.

This problem is affecting nearly every aspect of my life. I can no longer go over to friend's houses for dinner, visit family members, work in certain environments, or study at the library at school because of these wretched bulbs. I can no loner go to my favorite restaurants, small boutiques, or walk through downtown Portsmouth or Boston's Back Bay because of these lights. When I travel, I bring light bulbs with me to swap out the bulbs in my hotel room. I've even brought bulbs to people's houses and asked them to switch while there.

Oddly, long tube fluorescents don't bother me - it's specific to the compact variety. It's not the color temperature - they are all equally bad. And it's not any EMFs since I can't even look at the lights from a moving car.

I think it has something to do with the frequency of light, and maybe the ratio of surface area in the CFL bulbs compared with the long tubes. I know that some epileptics can have a seizure due to light frequency (strobes, monitors, etc). My general practitioner suggested I may have seizure-like brain activity (I've always been rather light sensitive). I'm trying neurofeedback to try to balance out my brain waves (I have a theory I might not have enough delta wave activity). It's the only thing I have to try.

I've decided to speak publicly about this because it's seriously impacting my life, and maybe there are others out there experiencing the same thing. It's been frustrating because I don't have many places to turn for help, and most people don't believe me because they don't personally experience this.

In the mean time, I'm stockpiling incandescent bulbs. I figure 350 should give me a 50 year supply. Here's the first 40.

John Halberstadt first made his name in the world of running in the 1970s. The South African native was a world class runner who was prevented from competing in the Olympics and other international competitions because of the Apartheid policies of the government. Halberstadt had a track scholarship to Oklahoma State University where he won several big eight titles and then placed third in The Boston Marathon in 1971. A versatile runner, Halberstadt has clocked a sub four minute mile and a sub 2:12 marathon.

Rune Holmen was a 13:43 5000m runner who competed at the 1971 European championships. His son is the reigning Finnish 10,000 metres champion who made a 2:16 marathon debut in Rotterdam, April, 1991. Rune married Nina, who was 1974 European women's 3000 metres champion.

Leonard Hilton came to the University of Houston from Houston's Austin High School. An outstanding distance runner for the Cougars from 1967-71, Hilton was an All-American and school record-setting runner. Hilton earned All-America honors in the 3-mile run in 1971 with a third-place finish at the NCAA Championships.

His performance at the NCAA meet came after he set school records in five different events. He holds school records in the mile (3:59.64), two-mile run (8:42.3), three-mile run (13:04.3) and the six-mile run (28:30). In addition to those records, Hilton ran the anchor leg on Houston's 1970 distance medley relay team that set the current school record of 9:34.0.

He is the only UH runner and first Texan to break the 4-minute barrier in the mile and attained the feat 32 times. After completing his running career at Houston, Hilton ran for the 1972 United States Olympic Team at Munich, Germany. He qualified for the team with a third-place finish in the 5,000 meters at the U.S. Olympic Trials. Hilton qualified for the 1972 USA Olympic team and he finished third in the 5,000 meter run at the U.S. Olympic Trials in Eugene, Ore.

During his running career, Hilton was a two-time American champion in the mile in 1973 and 1975. In 1970, as part of his training, Hilton entered and won the American National Marathon.

After winning the mile for the second time at the USA Championships in 1975, Hilton helped form the Houston Harriers as a national and international championship caliber running club.

Hilton earned his degree in engineering from UH and later served as vice president of operations with Kinder Morgan Energy and Enron Corp.
