TikTok has some really awesome videos you’ve most likely watched. Babies, after they just get fitted for hearing aids, hearing their mother’s voice for the first time. Sometimes, initially, the baby is reluctant. When the doctor tries to put the hearing aid in their ears, they fight against it. They might cry before they smile with joy. They’re overwhelmed with a range of emotions. They’re apprehensive about what to expect. But finally, their hearing is revived and the world abruptly opens up. The laughter and the smiles are enough to cause you to burst into tears of joy!
But anyone can have this life-altering moment.
If you’re feeling concerned about wearing 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.
The sweet sound of music
Maybe you didn’t even know. It occurred so gradually. You stopped listening to music. It just doesn’t seem as satisfying as it once did. It even annoys you at times. And the higher the volume the more annoying it becomes.
It isn’t simply volume that is impacted by hearing loss. It impacts how you hear different pitches and notes.
Every musician knows that the notes work together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. If you can’t hear the splendid complexity of music, it’s just not the same.
When you use your hearing aid, all of a sudden you can hear those once-silent tones. Music once again comes alive! It was once a wonderful pleasure in your life and now you have it back.
The laughter of a child
Do you remember what a child’s laughing sounds like? You might have forgotten this wonderful sound experience if you have chosen not to wear your hearing aids. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids by restoring your hearing.
Neglected hearing loss can put a significant strain on relationships. It frustrates people and causes misunderstandings. They often argue more. And the person with hearing loss will frequently feel like a burden causing them to isolate themselves.
While others are talking and enjoying one another’s company, the person with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will frequently isolate themselves.
Hobbies less satisfying so you’ve given many of them up?
Your relationships with your kids, friends, and your partner will be revived when you get your hearing back.
Regain your ability to speak with each other. Engage in long talks. Get back to doing the things you love and being with people you love.
If you’re missing this in your life, it’s time to reassess that hearing aid.
Feeling safer in your home
Do you feel anxious about what you’re unable to hear? Would you hear the voice of an injured loved one calling you from another room? Would you hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm? Would you miss the ringing of the phone when an important call was coming in?
Do you worry that you won’t hear oncoming traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a walk?
These “what if’s” can make us feel unsafe in places where we should feel totally safe. But when you use your hearing aid, you can be more confident, and enjoy life to its fullest. You’ll experience peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you might not even realize it
Just like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you may not realize what you’re missing. Hearing loss progresses slowly in most situations. You may simply forget the joy of things you no longer hear.
You’ll be surprised when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll regret neglecting it this long. Think your hearing loss isn’t that bad? Give us a call today to schedule a hearing exam and see what you’ve been missing.
