TikTok has some really amazing videos you’ve most likely watched. Babies, after they just get fitted for hearing aids, hearing the voice of their mother for the first time. Sometimes, at first, the baby is resistant. 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 overtaken with a range of emotions. They are not sure what to expect. But ultimately, with revived hearing, the world abruptly opens up for them. The smiles and the laughter are enough to cause you to erupt into tears of joy!
But anybody can have this life-changing moment.
If you’re feeling apprehensive about wearing a hearing aid, you’re not by yourself. If you’re feeling rather anxious about this process it doesn’t indicate that you’re a baby.
When people of any age experience hearing aids they may cry tears of joy, let’s discover why.
Music to your ears
You might not have even recognized it. It developed so slowly. You stopped listening to music. It just doesn’t seem as enjoyable as it once did. It even annoys you sometimes. And the louder it gets the more annoying it gets.
Hearing loss doesn’t just impact the volume of sound. In some cases, only certain 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. If you can’t hear the magnificent complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
Those tones that were once missing in music will be enjoyed once again when you get hearing aids. Once again, music comes to life. 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? If you’ve been reluctant to wear your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how amazing this experience can be. Restore your hearing and rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren.
Relationships can be substantially strained by neglected hearing loss. People get frustrated. It can often bring about more arguing. It can even cause an individual with hearing loss to isolate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
While others are chatting and enjoying one another’s company, the person with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will frequently isolate themselves.
Have you abandoned hobbies because they’re not as fun?
Your relationships with your kids, friends, and your significant other will have new life breathed into them when you get your hearing back.
Restore your ability to speak with each other. Have long talks. Get back to doing the things you love and spending time with people you love.
If you’re missing this in your life, it’s time to reconsider that hearing aid.
Feeling safer in your home
Do you feel anxious about what you can’t hear? If a loved one was injured and calling out to you, would you be able to hear them? Would you be able to hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector? Would you miss the ringing of the phone when a significant call was coming in?
When you walk through the neighborhood, are you sure that you’ll hear approaching traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
When we are in places where we should feel very secure, hearing loss can make us feel quite anxious. But when you use your hearing aid, you can be more confident, and enjoy life to its fullest. You’ll experience peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t recognize 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 gradual progressive process. It’s possible that you’ve forgotten what hearing well is like.
You’ll be amazed when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. Think you might have some degree of hearing loss? Call us today to schedule a hearing test and discover what you’ve been missing.
