My experience with hearing loss
 
I managed to get through grade school by re-reading all work from each day. High School was a different story as it was a Secretarial School, whereas they taught Shorthand/Dictation/Transcription along with other business courses. In New York we could get high paying jobs in business offices. My mother wanted me to be a secretary not a beautician like I wanted to be. My parents/teachers were ignorant of my hearing loss and of course I thought everyone heard/didn't hear as I did. One of the surest ways I knew something was wrong was when the teacher would dictate sentences and we had to write them in Shorthand, then type them.
 
 
 
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.
 
 
 
A recent report in The American Journal of Audiology, funded by Hyperacusis Research along with the Hearing Health Foundation, underscores how little is known about hyperacusis with noise-induced pain, and the confusing and misleading terminology surrounding the condition.
 
 
Do you hear that? I often ask my family that question. Sometimes I cannot tell if the noise I am hearing is my tinnitus or if the sound is actually there. Usually, it is all in my head. Typically, I know this, to be honest, but I ask anyway, just in case.
