wow i did not know we had these heartfelt responses to our active empathy questionnaire

i just took a peek at the responses in the DB section of the back end of the website — and i found a good number of really heartfelt responses on our active empathy questionnaire.

thank you for your responses, and i hope to have provided some helpful & soothing information in the YouTube video below…

i’ve made the video and this post completely public, so please note that your responses to this particular post are also public. member content is private and for members only. however, if you would like your identity to be private, then please use a pseudonym as your profile name. email addresses are never revealed, and should anyone access or use our email list without permission, then a criminal act is being perpetrated. perpetrators agree to provide us their names and contact information to be able to face criminal charges and prosecution. a straight-forward example of permission-based access to our email list is that our technical service providers do have access, because they need to make sure that emails get sent out to our subscribers 🙂

here’s a little bit about what it takes to publish caring, honest, correct, scientifically sound health information online

i kinda wanted to let you know what it’s like to publish health-related content online. it’s brutal…

…destructive efforts have included methods like:

  1. personal attacks
    1. via FaceBook messenger, FaceBook comments, blog comments, email
  2. financial attacks
    1. buying in bulk via fraudulent credit cards,
  3. threats
  4. hack attacks
  5. deceptive attacks (stealing my info and using it to sell scam products resulting in possibly thousands of people mistakenly thinking “I” sold them a poorly-written scammy eBook)

do you have any recommendations or solutions?

best,

dainsi

The History of CureTinnitus.org

  • Dainis W. Michel: tinnitus onset Feb 15 2002 4:30 PM
  • CureTinnitus.rg domain was registered by Dainis W. Michel on March 3d, 2004.
  • Blogging about progress, domain purchased as an intention, not as a cure — so the domain completes the thought: i wish to cure (my) tinnitus.
  • Addition of forum
  • Lots of nice people joined the forum, but then some incredibly angry people came along and threatened Dainis.
  • Dainis thought about how to finance the website, because management was getting time-intensive
  • Managing spam posts was getting to be about 2hrs per day
  • Update to WordPress
  • Dainis interviewed doctors, therapists, and those who had healed themselves of tinnitus. Dainis organized 28 Cure Tinnitus Shows and various support videos. The reason for interviewing and recording the interviews was essentially, because Dainis had run out of money traveling around the world seeking to cure his case of tinnitus. So, interviewing people for the website and helping others while helping himself seemed like a reasonable approach.
  • The intention to create a not-for-profit was one of the original goals for the website, but bringing that intention to full fruition simply seemed like a costly, time-consuming, not-that-worthwhile output of effort.
  • 2011 – focus on family matters
  • 2013 – Due to the unjust legal acknowledgement of fictional debts, Dainis has his business license revoked. No earnings or even transactions were allowed under the threat of significant penalties or jail time. Dainis pressed charges and insisted that people only be required to pay actual debts and not fictional ones. Dainis won his process against the Austrian Finanzamt, and the revocation of his business license was overturned in late 2016.
  • 2017 – Rebuilding the website.  What business form is it even? It’s simply an information platform that Dainis provides for free, in exchange for ad views or donations.
  • 2018 Doctors, therapists and counselors can create profiles and charge by the minute for tinnitus consultation.

Our Recently Acquired Tinnitus (RAT) eCourse is available again online…and it’s completely free!

I am super pleased, that on this Christmas Eve (2017), I woke up super early and fixed all of the links for our Recently Acquired Tinnitus (RAT) eCourse/, and access is completely free!

…and yeah, though i haven’t had the heart to really charge anyone any money for this site, would it be super-cool to receive a sizable donation? YES!

Send Dainis a donation 🙂

But you don’t have to donate — I can’t hang with the thought that someone who needs access — someone barely hanging onto life suffering from tinnitus winds up finding CureTinnitus.org with a big ole price tag on it. Nah. If you’ve been in that dark place that tinnitus can take you to, with suicide lurking around the corner and incredibly negative messages around you, then you know what I mean.

But, if you’ve come around to coping, management, or even remission — that hey — it would be super lovely to receive a few significant donations as a sign of gratitude and support 🙂

All of the videos work on the site again…

After several weeks of painstaking effort, all of the CureTinnitus.org videos work again. I needed to fish them out from various locations, upload them, etc. I still need to update the site architecture a bit, and then the site will be “up and running again.”

Come on by, you can join for free. Also, alums and graduates — of course you are welcome back without any charges whatsowever!

Am I being foolish by just making the whole site free? (more…)
