TikTok has some really awesome videos you’ve probably seen. Babies hearing the voice of their mother for the first time after being fitted for a hearing aid. Sometimes, initially, the baby is reluctant. They fight when the doctor attempts to place the device in their ear. Before they smile with delight, they might cry a bit. They’re overtaken with a range of emotions. They’re apprehensive about what to expect. But ultimately, with revived hearing, the world abruptly opens up for them. The laughter and the smiles are enough to cause you to burst into tears of joy!
But this life-changing event could occur for anybody.
You’re not alone if you’re feeling anxious about getting hearing aids. If you’re feeling somewhat apprehensive about this process it doesn’t indicate that you’re a baby.
When people of any age experience hearing aids they may cry tears of joy, let’s explore why.
The sweet sound of music
Perhaps you didn’t even realize. It happened so slowly. You quit listening to music. You’re just not that into it anymore. It even aggravates you sometimes. And the higher the volume the more grating it becomes.
Hearing loss doesn’t only effect the volume you can hear. In some cases, only certain tones of sound are effected.
All musicians know that the notes work together to make a single sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. If you can’t hear the wonderful complexity of music, it’s just not the same.
Those notes that were once lost in music will be appreciated once again when you use hearing aids. Music once more comes to life! It becomes a great joy in your life that you’ve lost.
The laughter of a child
Do you remember what a child’s laughter sounds like? If you’ve been hesitant to wear your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how amazing this experience can be. Rediscover these captivating moments with your grandkids by restoring your hearing.
Relationships can be substantially strained by untreated hearing loss. People get aggravated. It can frequently bring about more arguing. And the individual with hearing loss will often feel like a burden causing them to seclude themselves.
They might avoid social clubs or dinner out because they feel alone and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Have you given up hobbies because they aren’t as enjoyable?
Your relationships with your children, friends, and your partner will have new life breathed into them when you get your hearing back.
Regain your ability to speak with each other. Engage in long talks. Get 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 safer in your home
Do you feel anxious about what you can’t hear? If a loved one was injured and calling out to you, would you hear them? Would you hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm? 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 stroll?
When we are in places where we should feel quite secure, hearing loss can cause us to feel quite anxious. But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more comfortable, and enjoy life to its fullest. You’ll experience 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 may not realize what you’re missing. In most instances, hearing loss is a slow progressive process. You may simply forget the pleasure of things you no longer hear.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be astonished. You’ll wish you dealt with it sooner. Think your hearing loss isn’t that advanced? Contact us today to schedule a hearing assessment and discover what you’ve been missing.
