TikTok has some really awesome videos you’ve probably seen. Babies hearing the voice of their mother for the first time after getting a hearing aid. In some of these videos, the baby is uncertain at first. When the doctor tries to place the hearing aid in their ears, they put up a fight. They may cry before they smile with delight. They’re overwhelmed with a host of emotions. They’re apprehensive about what to expect. But finally, their hearing is revived and the world abruptly opens up. These videos can even cause tears of joy for people watching them.
But this life-changing event could occur for anyone.
If you’re feeling apprehensive about using a hearing aid, you’re not by yourself. 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 might cry tears of joy, let’s discover why.
Music to your ears
You may not have even noticed it. It progressed so gradually. You quit listening to music. It just doesn’t seem as enjoyable anymore. At times, it is even grating. Turning the volume up makes it even worse.
It’s not simply volume that is impacted by hearing loss. In some cases, only certain tones of sound are impacted.
Every musician knows that the notes flow together to make a single sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. Music just isn’t the same if you can’t hear the wonderful complexity of the notes.
Those notes that were once lost in music will be enjoyed once more when you get hearing aids. Music once more comes alive! It becomes a great joy in your life that was lost.
The laughter of a child
Do you recollect the sound of a child laughing? If you’ve been hesitant to wear your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how amazing this experience can be. Restore your ability to hear and rediscover these enchanting moments with your grandchildren.
Untreated hearing loss can put a considerable strain on relationships. It frustrates people and causes misconceptions. They often argue more. It can even cause a person with hearing loss to isolate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
While others are talking and enjoying each other’s company, the individual with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will often separate themselves.
Have you given up hobbies because they aren’t as fun?
The simple act of getting your hearing back will breathe new life into your relationships with a significant other, siblings, children, and friends.
Regain your ability to speak with each other. Talk long into the night. Go back to doing the things you love and being with people you love.
It’s time to think about hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.
You feel safer at home
Are you worried that you may be missing essential safety sounds? If a loved one was injured and calling out to you, would you be able to hear them? 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?
Do you worry that you won’t be able to hear approaching traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a stroll?
When we are in places where we should feel quite safe, hearing loss can make us feel quite anxious. But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more at ease, and enjoy life to its fullest. This is known as peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t realize how much you’re missing
Just like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you might not know what you’re missing. Hearing loss advances slowly in most cases. It’s possible that you have forgotten what hearing well is like.
You’ll be blown away when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. Think you might have some degree of hearing loss? Find out exactly what you’ve been missing by calling us for a hearing exam.
