TikTok has some really awesome videos you’ve most likely seen. Babies hearing the voice of their mother for the first time after getting a hearing aid. Sometimes, at first, the baby is resistant. When the doctor attempts to place the hearing aid in their ears, they put up a fight. Before they smile with joy, they may cry a bit. A range of emotions overtakes them. They are not sure 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 anyone can have this life-changing moment.
If you’re feeling apprehensive about using a hearing aid, you’re not alone. You don’t have to be a child to feel a bit careful about this new experience.
When individuals of any age experience hearing aids they might cry tears of joy, let’s explore why.
Music to your ears
You may not have even recognized it. It developed so slowly. You quit listening to music. You’re just not that into it anymore. Sometimes, it is even grating. Turning it up makes it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t just impact the volume you can hear. It impacts how you hear different pitches and notes.
All musicians know that the notes flow together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into 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 more when you get hearing aids. Once again, music comes alive. It becomes a wonderful pleasure in your life that was lost.
A child’s laughter
Do you recall what a child’s laughing sounds like? You may have forgotten this wonderful sound experience if you’ve chosen not to wear your hearing aids. Restore your hearing and rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren.
Untreated hearing loss can put a significant strain on relationships. People get aggravated. They often argue more. It can even cause a person 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 alone and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Have you abandoned hobbies because they’re not as fun?
The simple act of getting your hearing back will breathe new life into your relationships with a partner, brothers and sisters, kids, and friends.
Regain your ability to talk to each other. Have long conversations. Go back to doing the things you enjoy and spending time with people you love.
If you’re missing this in your life, it’s time to reconsider that hearing aid.
Feeling safer 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 the other room? Would you be able to hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm? Would you miss the ringing of the phone when an important call was coming in?
Do you worry that you won’t hear approaching traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a stroll?
These “what if’s” can cause us to feel insecure in places where we should feel entirely comfortable. But when you use your hearing aid, you can be more at ease, and enjoy life to its fullest. You’ll find peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you might not even know about it
Just like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you might not realize what you’re missing. Hearing loss progresses gradually in most situations. You may simply forget the pleasure of things you no longer hear.
You’ll be blown away when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. Think your hearing loss isn’t that advanced? Find out exactly what you’ve been missing by calling us for a hearing test.
