Life After Deaf
 
I'm actually fifth generation deaf on my mother's side - my maternal grandfather was also deaf, as was my maternal great-grandfather. I was born hearing, and I started to lose it at the age of 5. I moved to Ohio when I was 6. When I arrived at the local schools, they advised my mother to put me into the Ohio School for the Deaf - fortunately, my mother is also deaf, and she felt strongly that I should be mainstreamed. I used hearing aids and lip-reading all the way through high school, and became the first student in my school district to attend Johns Hopkins University as an undergraduate.
 
 
 
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.
