Coping
 
In 1968, when I was 45, the hearing in my right ear went down the tube. It happened very suddenly-over a couple of days. Five years later, the hearing in my left ear went in the same direction but not to zero. It happened over a longer period time but in much the same fashion-fluctuations in my loss of hearing ending in a nearly total loss of hearing. At the time, I was a professor of economics at the University of Missouri, Columbia, and teaching elementary economics with an enrollment of 1,000 students per semester. In 1975, I shifted to an honors class in economics with an enrollment of 66, which I continued to teach until I retired in 1985, but neither the change in teaching nor my retirement was associated, in any way, with the hearing loss.
 
 
 
Meet Team Campbell. Jean, Mitchell, Trevor, Corey, and Chris. Jean suffered a life-changing, devastating hearing loss injury at last year's Boston Marathon bombing. On April 21, in honor of Jean, the Campbell family ran Boston, their first ever Marathon, and raised funds for HHF! Donate to the Campbell family fundraiser and help us make hearing loss and tinnitus things of the past.
 
 
 
Lynn Crisci and her boyfriend, Doug Julian, attended the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, sitting on the edge of a sidewalk cafe, about 30 feet from the first bombing that occurred that fateful day.
 
 
Shannon Silvestri and her two teenage children attended the 2013 Boston Marathon to cheer on dad Kevin. Shannon's hearing was affected by the bombings that took place that day and it may never be the same.
