I Kill Watch Batteries. I Recently Had My Laptop On My Lap. It Won't Go Black. It Won't Work Now. I Almost Killed My Daughters The Same Day. What Is It With Me? What Am I Doing?
I've tried all of the suggestions I've heard: Having an electrician check wiring, using humidifiers, changing my shoes and clothing... I've lived in more than a dozen different houses, in two different climates. I find it hard to believe that it's environmental. I've changed phones, and carriers. I don't think it's "static electricity" either.
Something in my body drains batteries, messes up cell phones, and sometimes causes computers to do things that techs "have never seen before." When the top IT guy at the college can't figure it out... I don't give too much significance to the freak computer occurrences, (computers could just be junk; they mess up all the time for lots of people), but I know the battery thing is consistent. Cell phone batteries, watch batteries, AA batteries - they just are not safe around me LOL. My husband and I can start the day with brand-new, fully charged batteries in both of our phones, spend the day together, not use the phones at all, and at the end of the day, my phone battery is dead and his has lost one bar on the battery meter, at the most. Sometimes my phone doesn't ring, and voice mails arrive a few days after they're left for me. We've had three different sets of phones now, a couple of different brands, and even with different carriers, and the same things happen to my phone, but not to my husband's phone. We can even switch phones - if he's carrying it, it works fine; if I have it on me, it's iffy. Who knows. It would be nice if things would work around me the way they should, though.
All my battery run watches are in a drawer, bc they only work for a few days then quit. I stopped wearing them when my husband bought me a kinetic watch by citizen. It worked for years, till my eyesight got worst and it was hard to see the face of it. One day I left it by the pool and some body took it. Made me sad, I didn't wear a watch for years till my husband bought me a purple one, too bad it was battery runned. I can wear it for only a few days and had to put it in a drawer till I bought a new battery for it. I wore it after the instillation of the new battery and two days later it lost a significant amount of time. So I thought I would do an experiment and set the time and leave it in the car. After a week it still keeping time, then I put it on for a day or two same thing happens it stops or looses time. So now I leave it in the car and if I am wearing purple that day I will wear it, which is almost each day.. And I leave it in the car before I get out. So now my battery runned purple watch lives in the car and I can wear it for a day. At least my husband isn't disappointed in a gift he bought me. Yes, I am very sensitive to people too, sometimes too much. Sorry I have shared too much..
If that doesn't work get some wire, wrap it around your toes (make sure a metal end is touching your toes (electrical tape (small piece) and wire touching your toes should do it)) - run that out your shoe to the bottom of your foot, make sure the metal wire touches the ground - this should ground you out and is easily hidden.
