You’ve seen the videos on TikTok. Babies, after they just get hearing aids, hearing their mother’s voice for the first time. Sometimes, initially, the baby is reluctant. When the doctor tries to place the hearing aid in their ears, they put up a fight. Before they smile with joy, they might cry a bit. They’re overwhelmed with a host 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 burst into tears of joy!
But anybody can have this life-changing moment.
You’re not alone if you’re feeling anxious about getting hearing aids. 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 may cry tears of joy, let’s discover why.
The sweet sound of music
Maybe you didn’t even realize. It developed so gradually. You don’t take pleasure in music like you once did. It just doesn’t seem as enjoyable as it once did. At times, it is even aggravating. And the higher the volume the more annoying it gets.
Hearing loss doesn’t only impact the volume of sound. It impacts how you hear different pitches and notes.
All musicians know that the notes work together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. Music is just not the same if you can’t hear the amazing complexity of the notes.
Those tones that were once missing in music will be enjoyed once again when you get hearing aids. Music once more comes alive! It was once a great pleasure in your life and now you’ve got it back.
The laughter of a child
Do you remember what a child’s laughing sounds like? If you’ve been reluctant to wear your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how amazing this experience can be. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren by rejuvenating your hearing.
Untreated hearing loss can place a significant strain on relationships. People get irritated. It can often bring about more arguing. It can even cause an individual with hearing loss to isolate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
While others are talking and enjoying one another’s company, the individual with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will often separate themselves.
Have you quit hobbies because they’re not as enjoyable?
Your relationships with your kids, friends, and your partner will have new life breathed into them when you get your hearing back.
Learn to talk to one another again. Talk long into the night. 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
Are you stressed that you may be missing important safety sounds? Would you hear the voice of a hurt loved one calling you from the other room? Would you hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector? Would you miss the phone ringing when a significant call was coming in?
Do you worry that you won’t hear approaching traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a walk?
These “what if’s” can cause us to feel insecure in places where we should feel perfectly confident. But you put yourself at ease and more completely enjoy life when you get hearing aids. This is called peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t recognize 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 progresses slowly in most cases. It’s possible that you have forgotten what hearing well is like.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be amazed. You’ll regret letting it go this long. Think you might have some degree of hearing loss? Call us today to schedule a hearing exam and discover what you’ve been missing.
