Intentions of the Week

Intention of the Week: Diane Nabatoff

Help to restore hearing in her right ear

Sunday, February 25, 2018

10:00 am Pacific

Diane Nabatoff, aged 61, who lives Los Angeles, CA, has asked to nominate herself. Here’s her story:

“On January 24th at 5am, I woke up to an unbearably loud noise that I thought was coming from outside and wouldn’t stop. I quickly realized the noise was in my head, actually my right ear, and I was suddenly deaf in that ear.

“The doctor gave me antibiotics, anti-viral medication and a cortisone shot, and I began a round of oral cortisone the next day. By Friday morning I was starting to hear a little bit but the doctor sent me to a specialist who then injected my ear drum with cortisone. From that moment on, I couldn't hear anything at all other than really loud white noise, and other assorted noises like bells.

“No doctor is now able to tell me if I will get my hearing back. They say I have a limited window for my hearing to return.

“This is affecting every aspect of my life. I can’t go in public places and it is extremely difficult to work. It is very hard to function as it requires so much energy to block out the loud tinnitus in order to try to hear out of my working ear. The tinnitus is from my brain compensating for the loss of hearing. I am also disoriented and unclear where sounds are coming from.

“My last day of steroids was Monday, February 12th - so far they have not helped. I am about to start acupuncture as the only thing the traditional doctors can recommend is more shots in my ear drum. No one has been able to give me a definite diagnosis. It could be a viral-based condition but no one knows.

“Please can you help me heal the nerve damage and restore hearing to my right ear.”

Please hold the following intention on Sunday, February 25, 2018 at 10 am Pacific US time/ 1 pm Eastern US/ 6 pm UK/ 7 pm Europe: 

‘Our intention is that Diane Nabatoff’s right ear be healed of all nerve damage, that all hearing be restored, and that she be healthy and well in every way.’

Intention of the Week: Debra MacLean

Help to heal her pain from endometriosis and hysterectomy

Sunday, February 25, 2018

10:10 am Pacific US time

Tony Orvidas has nominated his daughter Debra MacLean for an Intention of the Week. Here’s what her dad says about Debra’s condition:

“She has had what her specialist described as one of the worst cases of endometriosis she has ever seen.

“After numerous surgeries from age 20 to current age of 39, she is still in almost constant pain.

“Below is what she sent me when I asked her to provide me with more information on her pain and illness. Our hearts bleed for her.”

Debra wrote: “I just want to be pain free and have more energy so I don’t feel tired all the time and need to sleep so much. It’s not even endometriosis any longer.

“I don’t know if it’s scar tissue pain or nerve damage pain. I think I have had 12 surgeries in all - diagnosed with endo during my first surgery at 20, then had surgery every one and a half years or so, partial hysterectomy at 35, full hysterectomy at age 36.

“Two rounds of IVF [In Vitro Fertilization] to have my two sons. Multitude of medications and treatments, with the most recent being a needle objected into both side of my vagina, or pudendal nerve, as it’s apparently called! Various leaves of absence from work as a grade school teacher since my hysterectomy due to pain and exhaustion.

“I’m always tired, often sleep 14 hours a night on the weekend and drag myself out of bed.

“Still in pain most of the time and really bad pain once a week . . . this week has been three days and counting.

“I want to have energy to play with my boys all the time and enough to stay up to snuggle with my husband Jeff instead of going to bed right after we put the boys to bed. I want to be happier.”

Please hold the following intention on Sunday, February 25, 2018 at 10:10 am Pacific US time/ 1:10 pm Eastern US/ 6:10 pm UK/ 7:10 pm Europe:

‘Our intention is that Debra MacLean be free of all pain from endometriosis, hysterectomy, nerve damage and scar tissue, and be healthy and well in every way.'
