My Story Of Tinnitus

My story. My name is Richard and this is my life short story of how unlucky one person can be.

Let me tell you before reading. I am dyslexic so apologises. Some kind person may be able to rewrite this for me. But you’ll get the picture.

I was also getting over the birth on my beautiful little girl that was born premature by 9 weeks. Breach birth covered in bruises from head to toe. Annie was still born and I watched the birth. I nearly pasted out but the good thing to hear is Annie Mae made it now 5.




She was so strong when they revived her. They took here strait away to work on her. I was told to sit in a room. I was shaking like a leaf. By then my partners mum and dad had arrived. 3 hours pasted and the doctor walked in and asked them to leave. O no I didn’t want to hear the words that was about to come out of his mouth. I was sinking into the chair.

Doctor said, great news you little boy is a girl. That’s how bruised she was when she first come out. Midwife said it’s a boy. Finally when I was able to see her she looked like a skinned rabbit laid in the hospital bed with tubes every where going into here belly button to feed her. I spent 8 weeks in hospital by here side.

I didn’t want to leave her and felt awful. My partner ended up been very ill. And is now in and out of hospital and is in hospital now as I am righting this 2018. I lost my job because I wanted to be with my poorly baby.

No job the bills was piling up quickly. It was close to Christmas my mortgage payments was late. Along with other bills. I did’t have any money left after 9 weeks I was so worried. Annie my little princesses was born on my birthday in November 2013. So Christmas was coming the goose was not getting fat I didn’t have a penny for my own hat.

A week before Christmas Day we was aloud to bing Annie home. I could not even afford to put fuel in my car. I had nothing and no body to help. I worked all my life and I tried to make a claim for benefits of the government. I was offered £38 per week. I was told if you have been on benefits years you get the top band £200+ a week. How was this fair. And would take some time to set up. Past Christmas till I got my first payment.

I worked all my life paid all my dues. I was offered a ticket for a food bank I did go to the food bank and the people that operated was really nice. I felt so embarrassed going but the people made me feel very comfortable. We had a chat and they filled the bags full of food and a bag of new toys for my daughter. I was so grateful.

I walked her home in a pram I was still so excited. I bought Annie home and was so happy in that moment. However money was on the mind.

Me and my partner who had gone though all this trauma had do work. I went into town desperate for anything. I was walking down a street some building work was going on in a shop. I asked to speak to the site manager begging for work.

He said the work had come to and end now. But we do need a builders clean before the shop is Handed back over. So I said that’s great I can clean. Me and my partner the following day started to clean the new shop. We finished after 2 days and they was very with the finished result. And paid into my empty bank account. Christmas was sorted.




Me and my partner was so tied with all what was happening. I Richard some weeks later  felt really weird. I was having a break down. I was taking to the hospital and suffering from exhaustion and lack of food. I had lost 4 stone in weight. I spent some time in a mental hospital and was given anti depressants and other sedatives. I did start to feel a little better after some rest, food and the tablets. A few weeks later the company that we did the cleaning job for called me and asked if we could do a few more cleaning jobs for them. YES was the answer.

We carried out many more cleaning jobs for them I was starting to catch back up on the bills. We was not far of losing our house 4 months no mortgage payment. But the work was coming in fast.

While we was cleaning a office out. For this stroke of look building company. Another clearance company asked if we could get rid of all the stuff in the office then clean it. Yes I said. Buy now I had a little cash car was back on the road.

I hired a trailer for the car to remove all the desks and items out of this office. I thought the office furniture was in very good condition. A local buyer and seller of office equipment bought it all. IDEAR. We was asked again to do another clearance same again.

I thought this is a great opportunity to make a small business out of the work we was receiving. I then started advertising online for house and office clearance services. Work was going ok. Bills was up to date. I bought a small van sky is the limit All is well I thought. Then 2 years later.

I was a hard working company owner now at York Recycling Service LTD working 13 hours a day 6 days a week. And still find the time to take my daughter out to parks, seaside, museums. I started this company from nothing. Building my way up over the years as above.

I started my company about 5 years raising the monies to buy a small van and started advertising online to do house clearances it went really well. I did this for about 2 years. I then raised enough monies to rent a property to sort what I was finding in the house clearances and selling the furniture and other items.

This was no piece of cake I was working 13 and 14 hours a day.

I thought I would get a skip wagon as I could see huge potential in this. First I had to pass my HGV test. I was worried about this as I am not the brightest button. First was the theory test 3 separate tests for a lorry test. Then there was the practical test that I was not that worried about. I did pass in November 2017 on my birthday so that was the best present ever after my daughter. It did take a few attempts.

Some time later I then bought 1 skip truck that wasn’t the best in the world and spent more time repairing it than driving it and bought some skips that was in need of repair. I am quite good with my hands and learn quickly.

I had to learn welding fast so I bought some sheet steel a second hand welder and grinder. I then spent all week working and on Sundays repairing the skips. So I have about 6 skips that could be hired out. They soon got hired out. Bought a few more skips more repairs. I could not afford new ones as they are about a £1000 each for 8 yard skips.



How I Developed Tinnitus

Tinnitus help tinnitus cure tinnitus medicationI was doing all the repairs on the wagon and that’s when it happened. Friday afternoon April 4th 2018.

Lifted a skip on the back of the lorry looked down at the rear Tyers they looked a little flat. So I go get the compressor to inflate the Tyers. Leaning against the tyre while inflating them. These Tyers are about 4.5 ft in hight. And hold 120 PSI pressure. A car is roughly 28 PSI. BANG IT EXPLODED It’s is the equivalent of 3 none shrapnel hand grenades going off I later learned. It threw me across my yard about 10 ft. When looking back on the cctv cameras. When I started to come round after been knocked out. My ribs Was broken and I was covered from head to toe in blood. Where thousands of punchers where the stones off the floor had pierced my clothing and skin from the pure pressure.

But I was alive. You do not usually survive after a tyre explodes of this size and pressure in such close proximity. Coming round I was so daised and shaking. I made my way to the A&E department at the hospital. On my way I was having Hughe panic attacks that I found out later.

I could not hear anything. Nothing at all apart from a really loud high pitched noise in my head. They rushed me in when I collapsed at the desk when giving my name.

I was out for about an hour. Then the doctor gave me something to calm me down. As I was shaking that much. I had a CAT scan. Results in. My eardrum had exploded and my inner ear was damaged. My hearing slowly came back completely in my right ear. But my left ear is completely deaf. The ringing in my head is so loud.

I have been to the hospital many times over the last few months and had a hearing aid fitted that helps a little. Doctors say you was very lucky I think otherwise. This is no life.

It’s now November 2018 and I am at home as I suffer with panic/anxiety attacks I can’t leave the house without having a panic/anxiety attack sleep just does not happen.

As a result the business that I had worked so hard to build is now falling apart as I can’t work. I have tried so many times to try I feel so ill. Tinnitus in my head is so loud it stops me from sleeping doing daily activities with my Daughter that I love dearly.

A short few months I’m back to what I wrote above. Business that I have put so much time energy and hard work into is failing. Back to been poor and no ability of saving anything. I feel so awful and it’s me what the problem is now.
