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. Sometimes, at first, the baby is resistant. They struggle when the doctor attempts to place the device in their ear. They may cry before they smile with joy. They’re overtaken with a range of emotions. They’re anxious about what to expect. But in the end, with restored hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them. These videos can even cause tears of joy for those watching them.
But anybody can have this life-altering moment.
You’re not by yourself if you’re feeling apprehensive about getting hearing aids. You don’t have to be a baby to feel a little careful about this new experience.
Let’s explore how individuals of all ages may cry tears of joy when they use their hearing aid.
Music to your ears
You might not have even recognized it. It occurred so gradually. You stopped listening to music. It just doesn’t seem as enjoyable anymore. Sometimes, it is even aggravating. Turning the volume up makes it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t only impact the volume of sound. In some cases, only specific frequencies of sound are impacted.
Music is composed of notes of sound that mix and travel as waves that are then detected by your ears. Music just isn’t the same if you can’t hear the amazing complexity of the notes.
Those notes that were once missing in music will be enjoyed once again when you use 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 recall what a child’s laughter sounds like? You might have forgotten this wonderful sound experience if you have chosen not to use your hearing aids. Rejuvenate your hearing and rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren.
Untreated hearing loss can put a considerable strain on relationships. It annoys people and causes misunderstandings. It can often bring about more arguing. It can even cause a person with hearing loss to seclude themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
They may stay away from social clubs or dinner out because they feel alone and disconnected while others are chatting.
Have you abandoned 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.
Learn to talk to one another again. Have long talks. Do all of the things you enjoy with the 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
Are you concerned that you may be missing essential safety sounds? Would you hear the voice of an injured loved one calling you from the other room? Would you hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
Do you stress that you won’t hear approaching traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a walk?
When we are in places where we should feel quite secure, hearing loss can make us feel quite uneasy. But you put yourself at ease and more completely enjoy life when you get hearing aids. You’ll experience peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you may not even realize it
Just like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you might not know what you’re missing. Hearing loss advances gradually in most cases. You may simply forget the pleasure of things you no longer hear.
You’ll be surprised when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll regret neglecting it this long. Think your hearing loss isn’t that advanced? Call us today to schedule a hearing exam and discover what you’ve been missing.
