TikTok has some really awesome videos you’ve most likely seen. Babies, after they just get fitted for hearing aids, hearing their mother’s voice for the first time. Sometimes, at first, the baby is resistant. They struggle when the doctor tries to place the device in their ear. They may cry before they smile with joy. A variety of emotions envelopes them. They are not sure what to expect. But finally, their hearing is revived and the world suddenly opens up. These videos can even cause joyful tears for people watching them.
But this life-changing event could occur for anyone.
You’re not alone if you’re feeling anxious about getting hearing aids. If you’re feeling relatively apprehensive about this process it doesn’t mean you’re a baby.
Let’s investigate how people of any age might cry tears of joy when they use their hearing aid.
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. Sometimes, it is even grating. And the louder it gets the more grating it becomes.
It’s not simply volume that is effected by hearing loss. It impacts how you hear different tones and notes.
All musicians know that the notes work 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 tones that were once lost in music will be enjoyed once again when you use hearing aids. Music once again comes to life! It becomes a wonderful joy in your life that you’ve lost.
The laughter of a child
Do you recall what a child’s laughter sounds like? You may have forgotten this beautiful sound experience if you have chosen not to wear your hearing aids. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids by restoring your hearing.
Relationships can be substantially strained by neglected hearing loss. It frustrates people and causes misconceptions. They tend to argue more. It can even cause an individual with hearing loss to isolate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
While others are talking and enjoying each other’s company, the person with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will often separate themselves.
Hobbies less pleasurable so you’ve given many of them up?
Your relationships with your kids, friends, and your partner will have new life breathed into them when you get your hearing back.
Regain your ability to speak with each other. Talk 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.
Feeling more secure in your home
Are you worried that you could be missing essential safety sounds? If a loved one was hurt and calling out to you, would you be able to hear them? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm sounded, could you hear them? Would you miss the phone ringing when an important call was coming in?
When you walk through the neighborhood, are you positive that you’ll hear approaching traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
These “what if’s” can make us feel insecure in places where we should feel entirely safe. 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 realize how much you’re missing
Much like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you might not realize what you’re missing. In most cases, hearing loss is a slow progressive process. It’s possible that you have forgotten what hearing well is like.
You’ll be blown away when, suddenly, you can hear again. 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 assessment.
