TikTok has some really amazing videos you’ve probably seen. Babies, after they just get hearing aids, hearing their mother’s voice for the first time. Sometimes, at first, the baby is reluctant. They fight when the doctor attempts to place the device in their ear. Before they smile with joy, they might cry a bit. They’re overwhelmed with a host of emotions. They don’t know what to expect. But finally, their hearing is restored and the world suddenly opens up. The smiles and the laughter are enough to cause you to burst into tears of joy!
But this life-changing event could occur for anybody.
If you’re feeling apprehensive about wearing a hearing aid, you’re not by yourself. If you’re feeling rather anxious about this process it doesn’t mean you’re a baby.
When people of any age experience hearing aids they might cry tears of joy, let’s discover why.
Music to your ears
Perhaps you didn’t even know. It developed so gradually. You quit listening to music. It just doesn’t seem as satisfying as it once did. It even aggravates you sometimes. Turning the volume up makes it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t only effect the volume you can hear. It affects how you hear different tones and notes.
Every musician knows that the notes flow together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. Music is just not the same if you can’t hear the fantastic complexity of the notes.
When you use your hearing aid, all of a sudden you can hear those once-silent tones. Music once again comes alive! It becomes a great pleasure in your life that was lost.
A child’s laughter
Do you recollect the sound of a child laughing? You may have forgotten this beautiful sound experience if you’ve chosen not to wear your hearing aids. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren by rejuvenating your hearing.
Untreated hearing loss can place a considerable strain on relationships. It frustrates people and causes misunderstandings. It can frequently lead to more arguing. And the person with hearing loss will frequently feel like a burden causing them to isolate themselves.
While others are chatting and enjoying each other’s company, the individual with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will often separate themselves.
Hobbies less enjoyable so you’ve given many of them up?
The basic act of getting your hearing back will breathe new life into your relationships with a significant other, brothers and sisters, kids, and friends.
Learn to speak with one another again. Engage in long conversations. Do all of the things you love with the people you love.
If you miss this in your life, it’s time to reassess that hearing aid.
Feeling more secure in your home
Do you feel troubled about what you can’t hear? Would you hear the voice of a hurt loved one calling you from another room? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm sounded, could you hear them? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ringing?
When you stroll through the neighborhood, are you sure that you’ll hear approaching traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
When we are in places where we should feel quite secure, hearing loss can make us feel quite anxious. But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more at ease, and enjoy life to its fullest. You’ll find peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you might not even know about it
You may 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 instances, hearing loss is a slow progressive process. You might simply forget the pleasure of things you no longer hear.
You’ll be blown away when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll regret letting it go this long. Think you may have some degree of hearing loss? Give us a call today to schedule a hearing test and see what you’ve been missing.
