You’ve watched the videos on TikTok. 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 reluctant. They fight when the doctor tries to place the device in their ear. They might cry before they smile with joy. They’re overwhelmed with a range of emotions. 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 erupt into tears of joy!
But this life-changing event could occur for anybody.
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
Perhaps you didn’t even realize. It developed so gradually. You stopped listening to music. You’re just not that into it anymore. Sometimes, it is even grating. Turning it up makes it even worse.
It isn’t simply volume that is impacted by hearing loss. Sometimes, only specific notes of sound are impacted.
Every musician knows 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 fantastic complexity of the notes.
Those notes that were once lost in music will be enjoyed once again when you use hearing aids. Music once again comes to life! It was once a wonderful pleasure in your life and now you’ve got it back.
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 beautiful this experience can be. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren by restoring your hearing.
Untreated hearing loss can place a considerable strain on relationships. It annoys people and causes misunderstandings. They often argue more. And the person with hearing loss will often feel like a burden causing them to seclude themselves.
They might avoid social clubs or dinner out because they feel alone and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Hobbies less satisfying so you’ve given many of them up?
The simple act of getting your hearing back will breathe new life into your relationships with a partner, brothers and sisters, kids, and friends.
Restore your ability to talk to each other. Engage in long talks. Go back to doing the things you enjoy and spending time with people you love.
If you miss this in your life, it’s time to reassess that hearing aid.
You feel more secure at home
Do you feel anxious about what you’re unable to hear? Would you hear the voice of a hurt loved one yelling to you from the other room? Would you be able to hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
When you walk through the neighborhood, are you positive that you’ll hear approaching traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
When we are in places where we should feel quite safe, 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. You’ll experience peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you might not even know about it
You might not even be aware of what you’re missing, much like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. In most situations, hearing loss is a gradual 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 may have some degree of hearing loss? Give us a call today to schedule a hearing exam and discover what you’ve been missing.
