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.
 
 
 
When we get fuzzy speech data to work with, such as in music lyrics, noisy settings or, if you have hearing loss, everywhere, our brains can come up with some pretty silly interpretations, like "I led the pigeons to the Flag..." instead of "I pledge allegiance to the Flag..."
