TikTok has some really amazing videos you’ve probably watched. Babies hearing the voice of their mother for the first time after getting a hearing aid. Sometimes, initially, the baby is reluctant. When the doctor tries to place the hearing aid in their ears, they fight against it. They could cry before they smile with delight. A range of emotions envelopes them. They’re anxious about what to expect. But in the end, with revived hearing, the world abruptly opens up for them. The laughter and the smiles are enough to cause you to erupt into tears of joy!
But this life-changing moment could happen for anyone.
If you’re feeling apprehensive about using a hearing aid, you’re not by yourself. You don’t have to be a baby to feel a bit careful about this new experience.
When people of any age experience hearing aids they may cry tears of joy, let’s explore why.
The sweet sound of music
Perhaps you didn’t even know. It advanced so slowly. You don’t appreciate music like you used to. You’re just not that into it now. It even annoys you at times. Turning it up makes it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t only effect the volume of sound. It impacts how you hear different pitches and notes.
Music is composed of notes of sound that unify and travel as waves that are then detected by your ears. Music is just not the same if you can’t hear the wonderful complexity of the notes.
Those tones that were once missing in music will be enjoyed once again when you use hearing aids. Once again, music comes alive. It was once a wonderful pleasure in your life and now you’ve got it back.
A child’s laughter
Do you recall what a child’s laughter sounds like? If you’ve been reluctant to use your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids by rejuvenating your hearing.
Neglected hearing loss can put a significant strain on relationships. People get frustrated. They tend to argue more. And the person with hearing loss will frequently feel like a burden causing them to isolate themselves.
They might stay away from social clubs or dinner out because they feel alone and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Have you given up hobbies because they aren’t as fun?
The basic act of getting your hearing back will revive your relationships with a significant other, siblings, children, and friends.
Learn to speak with each other again. Talk long into the night. Do all of the things you enjoy with the people you love.
It’s time to think about hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.
Feeling safer in your home
Do you feel troubled about what you can’t hear? Would you hear the voice of an injured loved one yelling to you from another room? Would you be able to hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
When you stroll 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 secure, hearing loss can cause us to feel quite anxious. But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more confident, and enjoy life to its fullest. This is called peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t recognize how much you’re missing
Just like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you may not appreciate what you’re missing. Hearing loss advances slowly in most cases. 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 your hearing loss isn’t that bad? Call us today to schedule a hearing exam and see what you’ve been missing.
