You’ve watched the videos on TikTok. Babies hearing their mother’s voices for the first time after being fitted for a hearing aid. Sometimes, at first, the baby is reluctant. When the doctor tries to put the hearing aid in their ears, they fight against it. They could cry before they smile with delight. They’re overtaken with a range of emotions. They’re anxious about what to expect. But ultimately, with revived hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them. The laughter and the smiles are enough to cause you to erupt 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 alone. If you’re feeling relatively anxious about this process it doesn’t mean you’re a baby.
When individuals of any age experience hearing aids they may cry tears of joy, let’s discover why.
The sweet sound of music
You might not have even noticed it. It happened so gradually. You stopped listening to music. You’re just not that into it anymore. Sometimes, it is even grating. Turning the volume up makes it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t just effect the volume of sound. In some cases, only specific tones of sound are effected.
All musicians know that the notes work together to make a single sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. If you can’t hear the magnificent complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
Those notes that were once lost in music will be enjoyed once more when you use hearing aids. Once again, music comes to life. It becomes a wonderful pleasure in your life that was lost.
A child’s laughter
Do you remember what a child’s laughing sounds like? If you’ve been hesitant to wear your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be. Rediscover these captivating moments with your grandchildren by rejuvenating your hearing.
Relationships can be significantly strained by untreated hearing loss. People get aggravated. It can frequently bring about more arguing. And the person with hearing loss will often feel like a burden causing them to seclude themselves.
While others are talking and enjoying one another’s company, the individual with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will often isolate themselves.
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 one another again. Converse long into the night. Do all of the things you enjoy with the people you love.
If you’re missing this in your life, it’s time to reassess that hearing aid.
Feeling more secure in your home
Are you stressed that you could be missing significant safety sounds? Would you be able to hear the voice of an injured loved one calling you from the other room? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm sounded, would you be able to hear them? Could you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
When you walk through the neighborhood, are you positive that you’ll hear oncoming traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
When we are in places where we should feel quite safe, hearing loss can cause us to feel quite anxious. But you put yourself at ease and more completely enjoy life when you get hearing aids. You’ll find peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t know how much you’re missing
You might not even be aware of what you’re missing, much like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. Hearing loss advances gradually in most cases. It’s possible that you have forgotten what hearing well is like.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be surprised. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. Think you might have some degree of hearing loss? Call us today to schedule a hearing exam and discover what you’ve been missing.
