The Secret of Tinnitus
Columne “Port Woling” 2015-10
Do we need to understand the secret of tinnitus? Once again, a TV reporter in a magazine tried to explain the suffering of tinnitus. Concussive, what false facts and hopes he spread. It is hardly surprising how little the problem, this tragic illness and consequences, is taken into consideration.
In return, I remember a tinnitus outing of a concerned person.
Friends, do not hit the book at once - perhaps you will learn to understand a person affected and his very special abilities. I will serve it as a light diet, as he wished.
Here his outing about tinnitus - one of the most mysterious diseases and its consequences.

Hello world - here is his outing
A person affected ...
... out himself to me and to the world. Not just footballers are going out. Now also tinnitus owners turn.
He urged me - he wanted to get out now and here!
He was also supposed to do this - he was recently taught at a really futile rehabilitation in a tinnitus specialist clinic.
He began to confess his confession. It is due to its high, permanent tinnitus ...
1. a saint
2. a clone
3. a tinnitus personality.
So - now it’s out. I begin to understand him slowly. The following narrative makes me much clearer. He apologizes for taking 31 years to report on his special predisposition to chronic tinnitus.
About three million Germans are affected by tinnitus. Of those affected, 1% again possess the particularly perfidious following characteristics of a tinnitus owner of the most severe, chronic form. He belongs to the latter.
Now exhale - he said it - finally! You see his relief. But how do you see him now? Is he still normal? Please look first.
What is the special feature of these not too normal assessments?
He was now - after more than 30 years of daily, conscious tinnitus suffering - for the first time on medical rehabilitation. Then a lot became clearer to him.
The known disease
Here is the cruel truth.
Tinnitus is a permanent noise riot!
In trying to explain - here is the worst for those affected. Specialists in tinnitus clearly speak of a disease - but the legislator does not. For the legislator it is ONLY a symptom or consequence of hearing loss. What a despicable moron - knows everyone concerned. What is the exclusion of those who are affected, what kind of discrimination or in-the-corner?
Hearing loss is at most a consequence of long-term tinnitus. In most cases, tinnitus is accompanied by a hearing loss in the same frequency range, but sometimes disturbances of balance or lack of directional hearing.
However, the broad effects of tinnitus are worse. That is the problem. Why does not the authority want to recognize tinnitus as a disease? The primary disability does not result from hearing impairment, but from tinnitus and tinnitus-related disorders, including related stress disorders.
Tinnitus - a hearing loss - is a severe case, a chronic pain of loud hearing of mostly high-frequency but sometimes low-frequency different noises on both ears. These noises have no external, perceptible source. Different causes can lead to this disease from tomorrow to tomorrow. Healing is possible - if at all - only within the first days.
In the most pronounced form tinnitus with all its consequences (physically, psychologically, professionally, mentally, socially) is a very high-grade disability - the person concerned can reach a participation in the social life only with a permanently high desire for will. It requires the utmost mental effort around the clock - without a break - even during sleep - all the rest of the life. Many do not succeed.
The effects and functional impairment of a very severe tinnitus are hardly conceivable for non-affected persons. Tinnitus-related effects and disabilities affect the quality of life as well as the mental state negatively, have a morbid physical effect and go along with high, daily suffering pressure.
They have long-term direct influence on body, mind and soul.
Cure? If in the first three days after entry did not happen - forget it! Every couple of years he has been playing the same game for over 30 years - he is hoping to do some rehearsals.
There was no real path of cure to this day. Noiser? The expensive “Noiser” named noise makers are to have been it for a few years. Such a nonsense. The additional noise in the ears by hearing aids with noise can only be alleviated by a few sufferers, but NEVER solve the problem and effects.
For example, it is 70 dB sound pressure level on one and 90 dB on the other ear in different frequencies of the high frequency range. This comparatively corresponds to the noise of lawnmowers, main traffic noises, trucks or medium press air hammers.
He gave an official in his case to understand, he would only please one day a Presslufthammer right next to his window in operation and then his job. The comparison produced little understanding. As well as. Place the compressed air hammer first.
As already mentioned - Tinnitus is not classified as a disease, but its symptoms are ill in many ways and in a concentrated form. It was the same with him, right up to the repeated life-threatening condition.
As we shall see, tinnitus effects also have advantages. He emphasizes this. There comes to him the incorrigible optimist - the source of his power.
Well, why is he at the same time a saint, a clone and a tinnitus personality?
Here three short episodes to the issue.
A tinnitus saint
A Saint Santa Tinnitus? He emphasizes - No - he really is not. He is only a tinnitus saint, at least if we follow the faith of certain peoples of the present or of ancient times.
According to this belief, the tinnitus echoes occur within the body of those who hear the voices of the gods. Tinnitus is, so to speak, the mouthpiece of the over-natural. Tinnitus sufferers received their predictions.
Well, he knows some gods in religious works. Only - he himself could not identify with these religions - only with human, ethical-moral norms.
Should still be something - maybe defined by modern quantum physics? Then he would have no disability but a fascination.
Is it a door to the soul of people, a sound image of the environment or even reality?
It would be a miracle-only he would not speculate. He watches it continue.
A tinnitus clone
He recently learned that he was also a tinnitus clone. My God - first saint and then still clone. How did it happen?
He sat in the tinnitus clinic to a lecture with about 50 sufferers - all successful tinnitus owners in severe cases. If not successful - they would not be present.
Strange as the participants resembled in utterances, in behavior, in reactions during the presentation. He could observe the real. Later the senior specialist confirmed this impression.
The explanation reveals itself in the following fact - which gradually became aware of the participant. There are recent scientific studies for long-standing, highly-rated tinnitus patients in terms of their personality characteristics. The over 99% (!) To the concerned similar to equal personality characteristics.
These characteristics have grown in decades - although these people came to their loud “life companion” in a different way - whether they were women or men - by severe blast trauma, severe stress phases, hearing loss, fate and other things.
Yes - we all concerned about the thumb have the same personality characteristics. Suddenly he felt like a clone under the same clones in this heap of tinnitus-tied, as among siblings-no, even heightened.
Yes - he told himself - we are all a clone of the first “prehistoric tinnitus”.
It was astonishing how all the siblings accepted. Yes - she throws nothing so quickly. They try to find out the cause first when a bomb bursts next to them. Then they go to cover. He knows this quite well.
A tinnitus personality
A personality in the sense of an example was always his endeavor - even if it did not always succeed. He emphasizes the latter. Only - decisive is always the willingness to learn from his mistakes. Then even the error carries positive qualities.
That he also became a tinnitus personality was probably not at his discretion. As we have just seen, highly tinnitus sufferers have over 99% the same characteristics in terms of their personality characteristics. Well - he has summarized these recognized characteristics of his tinnitus combatants times.
Here is his list of the most primitive characteristics. Caution - they are not a horoscope, but real.
These qualities are at the same time a blessing and curse - as one takes it.
Strong self-control, extreme perfectionist, high sense of duty and loyalty, high responsibility, can NEVER say no, head-relatedness - the brain always works under full load, strengths of a single fighter, high perseverance, highly knowledgeable and learningful, always the next appointment in the eye, high control need , At night crunching with your teeth.
And it goes on. They constantly develop high expectations of themselves, but they also set similar standards to others. They are relentless and always suspicious.
They are chronic fortune-tellers and without positive emotions, but imaginative and full-creative madness.
Happiness or joy can only be felt in the presence of family members or friends. They also need this bond. On the other hand, they are very receptive to injustice.
Negative emotions, such as fear? They know this, but only the fear of someone, family, friends, fellow human beings or something in the environment - but never fear for themselves.
They always want to bring performance - around the clock. Yes - even during typical sleep disorders, they continue to work mentally.
Success and performance pressure? No one has to exert any influence on them - they do this themselves in merciless self-destruction.
They are scarcely terrible - in the case of the unexpected, they first consider what the reason could be.
They live permanently in restlessness, in absolute endurance, or in perpetual stress at the edge of self-destruction. You can not escape that.
The external world has a greater significance for them than their own existence. They can not represent themselves - it has no meaning - they do not take themselves so seriously.
Nothing escapes them-there is nothing unimportant for them. They can absolutely hide nothing so easily - they want and need to save the world - but they are also able to do so.
They are condemned to receive life without interruption. They have no time to get the disease on track. Other or others are more important.
They are subjugated by nothing and no one, or are stretched before the cart. Their life is 100% only compulsory - the chronic, horrible tinnitus.
Even if he is personally threatened with a tinnitus episode and not too rarely his head - if the sudden, dialectical overflow threatens - he sees it positively.
People I can tell you - he is quite happy with his tinnitus possession. Who or what would have given him this strength for life?
In one, however, tinnitus clones seem to differ. There are those who survive the decades with an anti-tinnitus strategy, but still consciously deal with all the pressures of the day. And - there are the others who are eager to wait for the day when the light goes out - then they would finally have their peace.
That’s it. That was his outing. Thanks to him. Perhaps his outing makes tinnitus more susceptible to people who may also have the problem or live and suffer in your environment.
Just do not forget - the many possible tinnitus effects for the most severely affected are unequally more diverse. It is frightening what causes total impairedness - and what the world out there barely consciously perceives.
