You’ve seen the videos on TikTok. Babies, after they just get hearing aids, hearing the voice of their mother for the first time. In some videos, the baby is hesitant initially. They struggle when the doctor attempts to put the device in their ear. They may cry before they smile with joy. A range of emotions envelopes them. They’re apprehensive about what to expect. But in the end, with revived hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them. These videos can even cause tears of joy for those watching them.
But anybody can have this life-changing moment.
If you’re feeling apprehensive about wearing a hearing aid, you’re not by yourself. You don’t have to be a child to feel a little careful about this new experience.
When people of any age experience hearing aids they may cry tears of joy, let’s discover why.
The sweet sound of music
Perhaps you didn’t even know. It occurred so slowly. You don’t appreciate music like you used to. It just doesn’t seem as satisfying as it once did. It even aggravates you sometimes. Turning it up makes it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t only effect the volume of sound. It affects how you hear different tones and notes.
Every musician knows that the notes work 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 just isn’t the same.
Those tones that were once missing in music will be appreciated once more when you use hearing aids. Music once again comes alive! It becomes a wonderful joy in your life that you’ve lost.
A child’s laughter
Do you recall what a child’s laughing sounds like? If you’ve been hesitant to use your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be. Rejuvenate your hearing and rediscover these enchanting moments with your grandkids.
Relationships can be significantly strained by disregarded hearing loss. People get aggravated. They tend to argue more. And the individual 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 are chatting.
Have you quit hobbies because they aren’t as enjoyable?
Your relationships with your children, friends, and your significant other will have new life breathed into them when you get your hearing back.
Learn to speak with one another again. Have long conversations. Do all of the things you love with the people you love.
If you’re missing this in your life, it’s time to reassess that hearing aid.
You feel more secure at home
Are you stressed that you may be missing essential safety sounds? 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 detector? Would you miss the phone ringing when an important call was coming in?
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 very safe, hearing loss can make us feel quite uneasy. But you put yourself at ease and more completely enjoy life when you use hearing aids. You’ll find peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t know how much you’re missing
Just like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you might not appreciate what you’re missing. Hearing loss progresses slowly in most situations. You may simply forget the pleasure of things you no longer hear.
You’ll be surprised when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. Think you may have some level of hearing loss? Find out just what you’ve been missing by calling us for a hearing exam.
