You’ve watched the videos on TikTok. 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 delight. They’re overtaken with a range of emotions. They are not sure what to expect. But finally, their hearing is restored and the world abruptly opens up. The smiles and the laughter are enough to cause you to erupt into tears of joy!
But this life-changing moment could occur for anybody.
If you’re feeling concerned about using a hearing aid, you’re not alone. If you’re feeling somewhat anxious about this process it doesn’t indicate that you’re a baby.
Let’s investigate how individuals of all ages might cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.
Music to your ears
You may not have even recognized it. It happened so slowly. You quit listening to music. It just doesn’t seem as satisfying as it once did. It even annoys you sometimes. Turning the volume up makes it even worse.
It’s not simply volume that is effected by hearing loss. It impacts how you hear different pitches and notes.
Music is made of notes of sound that mix together and travel as waves that are then detected by your ears. If you can’t hear the splendid complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
Those tones that were once lost in music will be appreciated once again when you use hearing aids. Music once again comes to life! It was once a great pleasure in your life and now you have it back.
A child’s laughter
Do you recall the sound of a child laughing? If you’ve been reluctant to wear your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be. Rejuvenate your ability to hear and rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren.
Neglected hearing loss can place a significant strain on relationships. People get aggravated. They tend to argue more. And the person with hearing loss will often feel like a burden causing them to isolate themselves.
They may stay away from 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, siblings, children, and friends.
Learn to talk to one another again. Converse long into the night. Get back to doing the things you love and being with people you love.
It’s time to consider hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.
Feeling more secure in your home
Do you feel troubled about what you can’t hear? Would you be able to hear the voice of a hurt loved one yelling to you from another room? Would you hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ringing?
When you walk through the neighborhood, are you sure that you’ll hear approaching traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
These “what if’s” can make us feel unsafe in places where we should feel entirely confident. But you put yourself at ease and more thoroughly enjoy life when you use hearing aids. You’ll find 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 may not appreciate what you’re missing. Hearing loss progresses gradually in most situations. It’s possible that you’ve forgotten what hearing well is like.
You’ll be amazed when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll regret letting it go this long. Think your hearing loss isn’t that bad? Give us a call today to schedule a hearing test and find out what you’ve been missing.
