I wanted to ask you about possibly the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever done. In attempting to bring a bit of comedy into the tinnitus drama, I created this video called “The Mighty Tinnitey.” It’s here:
But before you even press play (if you haven’t already), it’s been up for a while and has gotten all of 21 hits, and just maybe, deservedly so. It really is totally ridiculous. I don’t even know why I put it out there.
Except that when I just watched it before writing this to you, it made me laugh. Now it’s me making myself laugh and I have no idea if my sense of humor even relates to yours or even comes anywhere close to “normal.” For example, I really like the movie “Galaxy Quest.” Does that make me crazy, goofy, dumb, silly…?
Anyway I had this totally crazy idea, and that is to create a short video together as a community.
The name would be something like: Tinnitus: Tamin’ the Mighty Tinnitey
It would be a cartoon or something like that in which the Mighty Tinnitey gets tamed by taking “him” out of fight or flight and into well-being.
There would be a really loud constant ring that moves into silence over the course of the video.
It would be like a symbol of what we are doing at CureTinnitus.org, and I can do at least some of the voices if not all of them. But I seriously can’t draw. I guess I could use my hands and make some kind of hand-puppet episode, but would that be cool or funny or just plain stupid?
The idea is to tame the “Mighty Tinnitey” with a funny short cartoon/video that we created together as a community.
The opening could feature a second or two of the Tinnitus Characteristics we’ve learned about:
High powered life
then the overachiever turns into the Mighty Tinnitey
Or this amorphous blob energy thing slams down into the person and rages out of his/her ears and the person gets “T.”
We then show the main components of what we are learning at CureTinnitus.org. Lifestyle, Therapy, Body Work, Mental, Spiritual, Emotional, Physical levels, Having a Support Network to Let Go into, etc.
…and we tame the Mighty Tinnitey…all in a short funny video.
a) would that be cool?
b) can you help out, because I basically don’t have the skills to do this
c) would it be funny or worth it?
OK…wanted to get that out to you!
Umm. Let’s think about this. If you were a drug addict and you went to a rehab center and they cleaned you up completely, when you leave the center, if you use drugs again, well, then you simply aren’t cured.

If you break your leg and get it set at the hospital, and you completely recover, can the hospital guarantee that you will never break your leg again?
Basically, if you live your life in a way that tinnitus loves, then tinnitus will not leave you. It is up to you to take the appropriat steps to make either lifestyle changes or fundamentally change how your nervous system responds to specific stressors.
No one can do that for you. Tinnitus patients sometimes gain significant relief only to then jump right into overwork, overstress, and overcommitment, while ignoring their need for adequate recuperation, rest and love.

A business mentor of mine, Eben Pagan, coined a term called “Inevitability Thinking” as a way to achieve goals.[private_Complimentary 7-day Tinnitus Liberation First Steps eCourse]”Inevitability Thinking” is a mindset where you basically figure out how a particular desired result can become inevitable. Not probable, not possible, not even likely, but inevitable.
That means you focus on creating the conditions that guarantee success.
How can we apply that to tinnitus? How can you create the conditions that make healing inevitable?
For me, right now, what comes up in my mind is
I need to surround myself with positive, supportive, and happy people
I need to improve my primary relationships with family members
I need to eat the right foods and get enough exercise
I need to relax.
I need time
What comes up in your mind?
How can you create the conditions that make healing inevitable for you?
You certainly need the right knowledge, support, and actions.
The right knowledge:
Do you have books on curing tinnitus? Have you worked with practitioners who can help you, or are you working with people who broadcast that tinnitus is incurable? Are you part of a support group, and how does that support group treat you?
You can gain the right knowledge as a member of the CureTinnitus.org Community. The community has a low monthly fee, and people who cannot afford it can always request a scholarship.
The right support
With so many people insisting that tinnitus is incurable, it’s quite challenging to align your life with people who think otherwise. As a member of the CureTinnitus.org Community, you have a safe, private, positive place to seek solace and to coordinate your healing.
The right actions
Some of the right actions are actually “inactions” Ha ha. What I mean is “rest” is a very necessary “action” for many people with tinnitus. Sometimes you need to stop doing things that are hurting you and start doing things that heal you.
You can learn about the right actions to help you with tinnitus as a member of the CureTinnitus.org Community.

Are you avoiding anything? [private_Complimentary 7-day Tinnitus Liberation First Steps eCourse]
I sure am, and I figure that might contribute to my still having tinnitus (at least at the time of writing). I’m avoiding some relationship issues, or actually, the people I’d like to resolve things with are avoiding me. Hmmm. I definitely could use a professional massage. Why am I delaying? I keep just working my butt off and not taking care of myself.
What else am I avoiding?
Well, it feels like my life is kind of forcing me to not do certain things that I would really like to do.
So, I’m avoiding taking my life into my own hands. In a sense I am, but I am a whole lot better at it. And frankly, just acknowledging that makes my jaw loosen up.
Also, I keep thinking “I’ll start saving when I have enough money to do so,” and “I’ll pick up where I left off in the martial arts when I get this CureTinnitus.org site running, or when I do this project, or that project.” Why do I avoid taking care of myself and run around and help other people before helping myself? Why do I create self-imposed stress and deadlines? Why not make a conscious effort to really address the things I might be avoiding?
Well, I’ve done that, I’m doing it, and it’s working. I’m getting stronger and setting better boundaries, and taking better care of myself. Yeah, from now on, I am going to say “what I WAS avoiding…”
How about you?[/private_Complimentary 7-day Tinnitus Liberation First Steps eCourse]
This one isn’t even about DOING. [private_Complimentary 7-day Tinnitus Liberation First Steps eCourse] This one is just about what you can think about right now that will make you feel happy. For me, it’s my super-smiling daugher! Tossing a football back and forth with friends. Being on a snowy mountain.
Makes me feel happy just to think about.[/private_Complimentary 7-day Tinnitus Liberation First Steps eCourse]
Somewhere, I have this inkling feeling[private_Complimentary 7-day Tinnitus Liberation First Steps eCourse] that people with tinnitus actually know exactly what they need to do to get better. There is someone they have a strained relationship with, or something that they just really NEED to do, and they are not doing it, like heeding their own internal desires.[/private_Complimentary 7-day Tinnitus Liberation First Steps eCourse]
