Receiving a diagnosis of hearing loss requires a shift in lifestyle and sometimes of self-identity. Facing hearing loss and sharing the journey of change and new experiences with others is a truly courageous thing. Sarah Wegley also known as the blogger the Speak Up Librarian is just such a courageous person. Sarah Wegley learned that she had hearing loss at forty years old. At first, she felt very alone, but quickly became part of the online deaf and hard of hearing community. Being a librarian, Sarah had a keen thirst for knowledge and so started on a path that would give her the information she needed and in the process inform and befriend others on the same journey. People Hearing Better is proud to be able to share guest blogger Sarah Wegley’s hearing loss story with you today.
