TikTok has some really amazing videos you’ve most likely watched. Babies hearing the voice of their mother for the first time after being fitted for a hearing aid. Sometimes, initially, the baby is resistant. They fight when the doctor tries to put the device in their ear. Before they smile with joy, they might cry a bit. A variety of emotions envelopes them. They’re anxious about what to expect. But in the end, with revived hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them. The laughter and the smiles are enough to cause you to burst into tears of joy!
But this life-changing event could happen for anyone.
You’re not alone if you’re feeling anxious about getting hearing aids. If you’re feeling somewhat apprehensive about this process it doesn’t indicate that you’re a baby.
When people of any age experience hearing aids they might cry tears of joy, let’s explore why.
Music to your ears
You might not have even recognized it. It happened so gradually. You don’t appreciate music like you used to. You’re just not that into it anymore. It even annoys you at times. And the higher the volume the more annoying it gets.
Hearing loss doesn’t only effect the volume you can hear. In some cases, only specific tones of sound are impacted.
All musicians know that the notes work together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. Music just isn’t 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-missing tones. Once again, music comes alive. It becomes a great pleasure in your life that you’ve lost.
The laughter of a child
Do you recollect the sound of a child laughing? If you’ve been reluctant to wear your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how amazing this experience can be. Rediscover these captivating moments with your grandchildren by rejuvenating your hearing.
Relationships can be significantly strained by disregarded hearing loss. It frustrates people and causes misunderstandings. They often argue more. It can even cause a person with hearing loss to separate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
While others are chatting and enjoying one another’s company, the individual with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will frequently isolate themselves.
Hobbies less pleasurable so you’ve given many of them up?
Your relationships with your kids, friends, and your significant other will have new life breathed into them 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.
It’s time to consider hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.
Feeling more secure in your home
Are you worried that you could be missing essential safety sounds? If a loved one was injured and calling out to you, would you hear them? Would you hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm? Could you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ringing?
Do you stress that you won’t be able to hear approaching traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a walk?
When we are in places where we should feel very safe, 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 experience peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you may not even realize it
Just like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you might not realize what you’re missing. Hearing loss advances slowly in most situations. It’s possible that you’ve forgotten what hearing well is like.
You’ll be amazed when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll regret letting it go this long. Think your hearing loss isn’t that advanced? Call us today to schedule a hearing assessment and see what you’ve been missing.
