You’ve watched the videos on TikTok. Babies hearing the voice of their mother for the first time after getting a hearing aid. In some of these videos, the baby is hesitant at first. When the doctor tries to place the hearing aid in their ears, they put up a fight. Before they smile with delight, they may cry a bit. They’re overwhelmed with a host of emotions. They’re apprehensive about what to expect. But finally, their hearing is restored and the world abruptly opens up. These videos can even cause joyful tears for those watching them.
But anyone can have this life-altering moment.
You’re not alone if you’re feeling apprehensive about getting hearing aids. If you’re feeling relatively apprehensive about this process it doesn’t indicate that you’re a baby.
Let’s investigate how people of any age may cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.
Music to your ears
You may not have even noticed it. It advanced so gradually. You don’t appreciate music like you used to. You’re just not that into it anymore. It even annoys you sometimes. And the louder it gets the more annoying it becomes.
Hearing loss doesn’t only impact the volume of sound. Sometimes, only specific notes of sound are effected.
Music is made of notes of sound that mix together and travel as waves that are then detected by your ears. Music just isn’t the same if you can’t hear the fantastic complexity of the notes.
Those notes that were once lost in music will be enjoyed once again when you use hearing aids. Once more, music 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 recall what a child’s laughing sounds like? If you’ve been hesitant to wear your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how amazing this experience can be. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids by rejuvenating your hearing.
Relationships can be significantly strained by neglected hearing loss. It annoys people and causes misconceptions. They often argue more. And the individual with hearing loss will often feel like a burden causing them to seclude themselves.
While others are chatting and enjoying one another’s company, the individual with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will frequently separate themselves.
Have you abandoned hobbies because they aren’t as fun?
Your relationships with your children, friends, and your partner will be revived when you get your hearing back.
Learn to talk to one another again. Have long talks. Go back to doing the things you enjoy and spending time with people you love.
It’s time to consider hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.
Feeling more secure in your home
Do you feel anxious about what you’re unable to 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 detector sounded, would you be able to hear them? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ringing?
When you stroll through the neighborhood, are you confident that you’ll hear oncoming traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
When we are in places where we should feel very secure, hearing loss can cause us to feel quite uneasy. But you put yourself at ease and more completely enjoy life when you use hearing aids. You’ll experience peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t recognize how much you’re missing
Much like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you may not realize what you’re missing. In most instances, hearing loss is a slow progressive process. It’s possible that you have forgotten what hearing well is like.
You’ll be surprised when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll regret letting it go this long. Think you may have some degree of hearing loss? Contact us today to schedule a hearing test and discover what you’ve been missing.
