TikTok has some really amazing videos you’ve most likely watched. Babies hearing their mother’s voices for the first time after getting a hearing aid. Sometimes, at first, the baby is resistant. When the doctor tries to put the hearing aid in their ears, they fight against it. Before they smile with joy, they might cry a bit. A range of emotions overtakes them. They’re anxious about what to expect. But finally, their hearing is restored and the world abruptly opens up. The laughter and the smiles are enough to cause you to erupt into tears of joy!
But anyone can have this life-changing moment.
If you’re feeling anxious about wearing a hearing aid, you’re not by yourself. You don’t have to be a child to feel a little wary of this new experience.
When people of any age experience hearing aids they may cry tears of joy, let’s explore why.
The sweet sound of music
You may not have even noticed it. It developed so slowly. You stopped listening to music. It just doesn’t seem as satisfying anymore. It even aggravates you at times. Turning it up makes it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t only effect the volume you can hear. In some cases, only certain notes of sound are effected.
All musicians know that the notes flow together to make a single sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. Music is just not the same if you are unable to hear the wonderful complexity of the notes.
Those notes that were once missing in music will be appreciated once again when you use hearing aids. Music once again comes to life! It becomes a wonderful joy in your life that was lost.
The laughter of a child
Do you remember what a child’s laughter sounds like? If you’ve been reluctant to use your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be. Restore your ability to hear and rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids.
Neglected hearing loss can place a significant strain on relationships. People get irritated. It can often result in more arguing. It can even cause a person with hearing loss to isolate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
They might avoid social clubs or dinner out because they feel alone and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Hobbies less satisfying so you’ve given many of them up?
Your relationships with your kids, friends, and your significant other will be revived when you get your hearing back.
Learn to talk to each other again. Have long talks. Get back to doing the things you love and being with people you love.
It’s time to consider hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.
You feel more secure at home
Do you feel troubled about what you’re unable to hear? Would you be able to hear the voice of an injured loved one calling you from another room? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector sounded, could you hear them? Could you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
When you stroll through the neighborhood, are you confident that you’ll hear approaching traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
These “what if’s” can make us feel unsafe in places where we should feel perfectly comfortable. But you put yourself at ease and more thoroughly enjoy life when you get hearing aids. This is known as peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you may not even know about it
You might not even be aware of what you’re missing, just like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. In most situations, hearing loss is a gradual progressive process. You might simply forget the joy of things you no longer hear.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be astonished. You’ll regret letting it go this long. Think you might have some level of hearing loss? Find out exactly what you’ve been missing by calling us for a hearing exam.
