You’ve watched the videos on TikTok. Babies, after they just get fitted for hearing aids, hearing the voice of their mother for the first time. In some videos, the baby is hesitant at first. They fight when the doctor attempts to put the device in their ear. They might cry before they smile with delight. They’re overtaken with a host of emotions. They’re apprehensive about what to expect. But finally, their hearing is revived and the world suddenly opens up. The smiles and the laughter are enough to cause you to erupt into tears of joy!
But this life-changing moment could happen for anyone.
If you’re feeling concerned about using a hearing aid, you’re not by yourself. You don’t have to be a baby to feel a little careful about this new experience.
When people of any age experience hearing aids they may cry tears of joy, let’s discover why.
Music to your ears
Perhaps you didn’t even realize. It occurred so slowly. You stopped listening to music. You’re just not that into it anymore. At times, it is even grating. And the higher the volume the more annoying it becomes.
It isn’t simply volume that is impacted by hearing loss. In some cases, only certain tones of sound are effected.
All musicians know that the notes flow together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. If you can’t hear the wonderful complexity of music, it’s just not the same.
Those tones that were once missing in music will be appreciated once again when you get hearing aids. Music once more comes to life! It becomes a great pleasure 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 hesitant to wear your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how amazing this experience can be. Rejuvenate your ability to hear and rediscover these enchanting moments with your grandkids.
Neglected hearing loss can put a considerable strain on relationships. People get frustrated. It can often bring about more arguing. It can even cause a person with hearing loss to separate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
They may avoid social clubs or dinner out because they feel secluded and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Have you quit hobbies because they aren’t as enjoyable?
The basic act of getting your hearing back will revive your relationships with a significant other, brothers and sisters, kids, and friends.
Learn to talk to each other again. Converse long into the night. Do all of the things you love with the people you love.
It’s time to think about hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.
You feel more secure at home
Are you worried that you may be missing significant safety sounds? If a loved one was injured and calling out to you, would you be able to hear them? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector sounded, would you be able to hear them? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
Do you stress that you won’t hear approaching traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a walk?
When we are in places where we should feel very secure, hearing loss can cause us to feel quite anxious. But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more comfortable, and enjoy life to its fullest. You’ll experience peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t recognize how much you’re missing
You may not even know what you’re missing, just like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. Hearing loss progresses gradually in most instances. It’s possible that you have forgotten what hearing well is like.
You’ll be surprised when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll regret letting it go this long. Think your hearing loss isn’t that advanced? Find out just what you’ve been missing by giving us a call for a hearing exam.
