      Explanation in About You
      I was starting to get a little scared when I saw he hadn’t signed in for more than a month so this breaks my goddamn heart.

      Tinnitus wreaks so much devastation on people and their families. I hate even having to write RIP. Allan deserved to live and laugh and recover. My thoughts truly go out to his wife and children - I know he was deeply loved.

      Wow... My condolences to Allan's immediate family. And of course his extended family... us... we all know our struggles with this and it is always uplifting when we show our support for one another. I have read a few of Allan's posts and although he struggled I believe he fought to try and stay positive...

      When I visit next month at the Neuromod Center I will kneel and say a prayer for Allan as close as I can to that picture of him... God Bless.

      This news made me extremely sad. Tears are rolling down my face and my heart aches.
      I am so sorry. I was hoping he'd get better.

      Just a few weeks ago I asked on the Lenire thread if anyone knew how he was doing as I noticed he went silent and I was concerned.
      :(

      The struggle with tinnitus is real and serious.
      I pray for the day when we can live free of this torture.
      My sincere condolences to his family.

      Rest easy and free Allan.
      You will not be forgotten.

      This is truly heartbreaking news. I know I’m new here, but I’ve been reading the forum for 8 months now, in great detail. I knew about Allan’s tremendous struggle.

      Nobody should have to go through the incredible struggle (pain) of having tinnitus or any other severe disorder (disease). It’s just so unfair to end this way. We all need help. Real help.

      I hope his family finds the strength to overcome.

      Allan, I hope you are finally in peace.

      You will always be in our memories.

      Very sad to hear this.

      As a fellow musician I know how much more this condition can rob from us. Not that it's easy for anyone of course.

      Thoughts and prayers to his family.

      Rest in Peace @Allan1967.

      My condolences to his family and friends.

      I never had a conversation with him but I knew he was struggling. Before @Markku created this thread, he stated in another thread that someone had passed away, in my mind I said “please it can’t be Allan”. When he created this thread I started to cry when I found out it was him.

      I just hope one day everyone will treat the damage of noise seriously and we can change the stigma of tinnitus that loudness does matter and not everyone can habituate. I just know it will happen one day but I just don’t know when.

      When a cure does eventually come out for tinnitus I will remember you Allan.

      I will pray for your family and friends that they will get through in this difficult time.

      I hope you are happy and enjoying time in heaven.

      This is too close to home :’(

      It's sad that only with time will people realize how severe tinnitus and/or hyperacusis can get.

      Shame Lenire didn't work for Allan.

      My heart always went out to Allan as I saw him struggling so much. I often thought of contacting him by PM, but couldn't think of any way I might be able to help that was different from what I posted online. So I never did, which I now regret. -- My sincerest condolences to Allan's family and close friends.

      Blessings to all of you as you go through such trying times.

      In 2020 this should not be happening!

      RIP Allan, your passing is a reminder that all of us are only a step away from things going terribly terribly wrong! Mild tinnitus can very quickly turn into unbearable nightmare.

      So protect your ears, be nice to each other, be supportive and don’t belittle anyone’s suffering just because you don’t experience it... we only have each other to lean on!

      I’m happy to know we all did our bit to support him during his struggles but also during his trial of Lenire.

      Sincere condolences to Allan’s family.

      Thank you to all.

      May we become stronger and more dear to each other in the face of losing a valued member of our community.

      Absolutely saddened by this news. I have cried my eyes out all day. I would regularly speak with Allan by private message and to be truthful I was avoiding logging on because I sent him a message a few weeks before Xmas and I did not get a reply.

      Allan always replied to me within 24 hours and I just knew something was wrong. He was a gentle kind soul and I know he will be missed by all of the Tinnitus Talk community.

      My heart goes out to his family who he loved deeply.

      RIP IN PEACE MY FRIEND.

      I'm really happy if he is in SILENCE now. He (everyone of us) deserved it.

      So sorry that his life story had to end up like this!

      My condolences to his family and friends.

      (I hope it was not S but you know, unfortunately...)

      Rest in Silence Allan.

      AVIYT maybe you can make a video about this to raise awareness of the seriousness of tinnitus and hyperacusis.
