I’m Not Stupid I Have Hearing Loss
As someone who was possibly born with hearing loss, the author’s hearing loss became more severe as she grew up. Tracy was a child who struggled in school at the age when the essential skills of reading, writing, and comprehension developed. These skills have always been a challenge throughout her life.
Tracy Markley’s accomplishments have not come easy. The challenge to hear well in daily life activities and in communications with others can make her brain tired. Reading lips was a habit she was not aware she was doing. Hearing loss can cause fatigue, depression, isolation, and often experiences of unkind treatment from others. In this book “I’m Not Stupid. I have Hearing Loss,” Tracy shares the experiences she has had getting through her life as a child and as an adult with hearing loss. Tracy was teased and made fun of by certain individuals for how she spoke when she thought she spoke just fine. She always wanted to write a book, but thought she was not smart enough. Once she began wearing hearing aids in her late thirties, her life changed. In time, to her surprise, reading and writing became less of a challenge for her. She learned as an adult how hearing loss can affect such skills at all ages, especially kids.
