TikTok has some really amazing videos you’ve most likely seen. Babies, after they just get hearing aids, hearing their mother’s voice for the first time. Sometimes, at first, the baby is reluctant. They struggle when the doctor tries to put the device in their ear. They might cry before they smile with joy. They’re overwhelmed with a range of emotions. They don’t know 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 anyone can have this life-changing moment.
You’re not alone if you’re feeling apprehensive about getting hearing aids. 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 might cry tears of joy, let’s explore why.
The sweet sound of music
You might not have even recognized it. It happened so slowly. You quit listening to music. It just doesn’t seem as enjoyable anymore. It even aggravates you sometimes. Turning it up makes it even worse.
It’s not just volume that is effected by hearing loss. Sometimes, only specific frequencies of sound are impacted.
Music is composed of notes of sound that mix and travel as waves that are then detected by your ears. Music just isn’t the same if you are unable to hear the amazing complexity of the notes.
When you use your hearing aid, suddenly you can hear those once-missing notes. Once again, music comes alive. It becomes a wonderful pleasure in your life that was lost.
The laughter of a child
Do you recollect the sound of a child laughing? You might have forgotten this beautiful sound experience if you’ve chosen not to wear your hearing aids. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids by restoring your hearing.
Relationships can be significantly strained by disregarded hearing loss. It frustrates people and causes misunderstandings. They tend to argue more. It can even cause an individual with hearing loss to isolate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
They may avoid social clubs or dinner out because they feel secluded and disconnected while others are chatting.
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.
Learn to speak with each other again. Have long conversations. Get back to doing the things you love and being with people you love.
If you miss this in your life, it’s time to reconsider that hearing aid.
You feel safer at home
Do you feel anxious about what you can’t hear? If a loved one was injured and calling out to you, would you be able to hear them? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm sounded, would you be able to hear them? Could you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ringing?
Do you stress that you won’t hear approaching traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a walk?
When we are in places where we should feel very safe, hearing loss can cause us to feel quite uneasy. But you put yourself at ease and more completely enjoy life when you get hearing aids. You’ll find peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you may not even know about it
You may not even know what you’re missing, much like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. 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 wish you addressed it sooner. Think you might have some level of hearing loss? Call us today to schedule a hearing test and find out what you’ve been missing.
