TikTok has some really amazing videos you’ve probably seen. Babies hearing their mother’s voices for the first time after getting a hearing aid. In some videos, the baby is hesitant initially. When the doctor attempts to place the hearing aid in their ears, they fight against it. Before they smile with joy, they may cry a bit. They’re overtaken with a host of emotions. They’re apprehensive about what to expect. But finally, their hearing is restored and the world abruptly opens up. These videos can even cause tears of joy for those watching them.
But anyone can have this life-altering moment.
If you’re feeling concerned about using a hearing aid, you’re not alone. If you’re feeling rather anxious about this process it doesn’t mean you’re a baby.
When individuals of any age experience hearing aids they may cry tears of joy, let’s discover why.
Music to your ears
Maybe you didn’t even know. It progressed so slowly. You quit listening to music. You’re just not that into it anymore. It even aggravates you at times. Turning the volume up makes it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t only impact the volume you can hear. It affects how you hear different pitches and notes.
Music is composed of notes of sound that mix and travel as waves that are then detected by your ears. Music is just not the same if you can’t hear the amazing complexity of the notes.
When you use your hearing aid, suddenly you can hear those once-missing notes. Music once again comes alive! It was once a great pleasure in your life and now you have it back.
A child’s laughter
Do you remember what a child’s laughing sounds like? If you’ve been reluctant to use your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be. Rediscover these captivating moments with your grandkids by rejuvenating your hearing.
Relationships can be substantially strained by untreated hearing loss. People get irritated. It can often lead to more arguing. And the person with hearing loss will often feel like a burden causing them to isolate themselves.
They may 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 basic act of getting your hearing back will revive your relationships with a significant other, brothers and sisters, children, and friends.
Restore your ability to talk to each other. Converse long into the night. Do all of the things you enjoy with the people you love.
It’s time to consider hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.
Feeling safer in your home
Are you worried that you could be missing significant safety sounds? Would you be able to hear the voice of a hurt loved one calling you from another room? Would you hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector? Would you miss the phone ringing when a significant call was coming in?
Do you stress that you won’t hear oncoming traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a walk?
These “what if’s” can cause us to feel insecure in places where we should feel totally confident. But you put yourself at ease and more thoroughly enjoy life when you use hearing aids. You’ll experience peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t know how much you’re missing
You may 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 instances, hearing loss is a slow 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 regret letting it go 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.
