TikTok has some really awesome videos you’ve most likely seen. Babies hearing their mother’s voices for the first time after getting a hearing aid. Sometimes, initially, the baby is resistant. When the doctor attempts to put the hearing aid in their ears, they put up a fight. They could cry before they smile with delight. They’re overwhelmed with a range of emotions. They’re anxious about 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 this life-changing moment could happen for anyone.
You’re not by yourself 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.
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 satisfying as it once did. It even annoys you at times. And the louder it gets the more annoying it gets.
It’s not simply volume that is effected by hearing loss. In some cases, only specific tones of sound are effected.
All musicians know that the notes flow together to make a single sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. If you can’t hear the magnificent complexity of music, it’s just not the same.
Those tones that were once missing in music will be enjoyed once more when you use hearing aids. Music once again comes alive! It becomes a great pleasure in your life that was lost.
A child’s laughter
Do you recall the sound of a child laughing? You may have forgotten this wonderful sound experience if you’ve chosen not to use your hearing aids. Rejuvenate your hearing and rediscover these enchanting moments with your grandchildren.
Untreated hearing loss can place a significant strain on relationships. It annoys people and causes misunderstandings. It can frequently lead to more arguing. It can even cause a person 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 individual with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will frequently separate themselves.
Hobbies less enjoyable 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 significant other, brothers and sisters, kids, and friends.
Regain your ability to speak with each other. Talk long into the night. Do all of the things you enjoy with the people you love.
If you miss this in your life, it’s time to reassess that hearing aid.
You feel more secure at home
Are you concerned that you may be missing essential safety sounds? If a loved one was injured and yelling out to you, would you be able to hear them? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm sounded, could you hear them? Would you miss the phone ringing when an important call was coming in?
Do you stress that you won’t hear oncoming traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a stroll?
These “what if’s” can make us feel unsafe in places where we should feel perfectly safe. But you put yourself at ease and more completely enjoy life when you get hearing aids. This is known as peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t know how much you’re missing
You might not even know 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 slow progressive process. It’s possible that you have forgotten what hearing well is like.
You’ll be amazed when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll regret neglecting it this long. Think your hearing loss isn’t that bad? Find out just what you’ve been missing by calling us for a hearing exam.
