PostSubject: Please pray for my neighbor   Thu Nov 13, 2008 3:27 pm

For the past 7 weeks, my neighbor, John, has been suffering from severe tinnitus. Tinnitus is a ringing in the ears that can take on many different forms. For him, all he can hear in his left ear is this loud whooshing sound, kind of like the wind howling. It's 24/7 and has not let up for 7 weeks. He hasn't been able to sleep, and has become very depressed. He's only 35, and has two kids, ages 6 and 4. I called over there this morning to talk to his wife since I hadn't talked to her for a few days, and she said that things were horrible. The sleeping pills aren't really helping, and he's literally losing it. I can't even begin to imagine the agony he feels on a daily basis. They're trying to find anything that may help him, and will be going to a tinnitus clinic soon. This morning, Marcy, John's wife, told me that she called a crisis hotline because it had gotten so debilitating for him. He's slowly losing his will to live because the tinnitus starts to take over your brain, and you cannot function. John is the last person that I ever thought would give up hope, but when you're this depressed, I can understand how helpless one can feel. They've seen quite a few doctors, even an ENT at the Mayo Clinic. I've been reading about the tinnitus clinic online that is in Minneapolis, and it gives me hope that a new treatment may be able to help him. I'm sorry to ramble on, but the power of prayer on this board is so strong that I wanted to ask you to please keep John in your prayers. Thank you.

I'm sorry to hear about John's problem. I can't imagine hearing that constantly.

I am praying for him and that he can find help soon.

I cannot even begin to imagine how difficult it must be trying to cope through something like that. It sounds like pure agony. I will absolutely keep John and his family in my prayers.

I have slight problems with vertigo and tinnitus and I can't imaging what it would be like to have a really bad case of it! Poor John and his family. Have mercy, Lord.

What an awful thing to have to live with! I pray that there is some treatment, medication or something that can give him hope again. I know from my dad's depression last year how scary it is to watch someone you love slowly fade into someone else; to see all the emotion that was once a part of them turn into hopelessness. I will be keeping your neighbor in my prayers.
