Removing Fake Registrations From CureTinnitus.org Call For Funding

I think the core message of this video is: I do not find running CureTinnitus.org as a “business” ethical (so what do i do when a suicidal teenager calls?), but I cannot afford to run CureTinnitus.org as a service without funding. Here are a few vids of me doing stuff like deleting spam registrations at the website, which is what happens when you have a prominent website that serves a good amount of data and has a fair amount of traffic.

Please let me know if you can be of assistance by providing funding for CureTinnitus.org. Also, we have had some programmers come through and offer work, but really, life moves on, people get better from tinnitus, and it is unfair to ask people to work without providing fair compensation. So, basically, I am preparing to create a crowd-sourcing campaign to make curetinnitus.org into a real not-for-profit organization by 2014.

When members join our current programs — they get excellent help. Join if you can afford it.

Getting Better At Getting Better — Added A Guideline So It’s 5 Now :-)

  1. LEARN – PLAN – IMPLEMENT – IMPROVE: Learn about tinnitus and well being and plan an effective path for you to decrease tinnitus and increase your well being. Look at your daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly “lifestyle.” Find the help you need. Design a plan that fits your personality, preferences, and budget. If you can’t afford a particular therapy right now — replace that portion of your plan with something you can afford or do for yourself. Continue to practice each of the 5 guidelines and get better at getting better as you go 🙂
  2. PHYSICAL HEALTH: Take care of your physical body (including getting proper medical attention for medical conditions). Get effective, relaxing, wonderful body-based therapy that works for you (CST, massage, physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture…etc. your choice do what works)
  3. BEYOND PHYSICAL HEALTH: Take care of your mental, spiritual, and emotional health by getting effective relaxing mental/spiritual/emotional counseling or therapy like psychotherapy, hypnosis, relationship work, etc. — again — do what works for you.
  4. PERSONAL WELL BEING: Effective, relaxing, delicious, happy personal “work.” Make personal lifestyle changes that bring you into a state of well being. So, take that walk, do that project, change your job, confront that bully, etc. Also, this includes bringing your financial well being to a place where you can have fair interchange with the people in your surroundings. Do your personal “work,” but do it in a happy way. Add wonderful elements into your life that work for you and help you at first cope with, then “forget” about tinnitus, and then help you dissolve it.
  5. SUPPORT NETWORK: Establish a loving network of support that you can “let go” into. If you feel stressed out after your counseling or psychotherapy session, have the courage to interview other therapists and make a change. Bring in a hobby group, a support group, an online group that truly supports your healing. Surround yourself with happy people, good friends, and supportive family members…and again even ONE good friend, ONE single source of compassion and love can be enough…and frankly, deserves incredible gratitude.
