TikTok has some really amazing videos you’ve most likely watched. Babies, after they just get hearing aids, hearing the voice of their mother for the first time. In some videos, the baby is uncertain at first. They struggle when the doctor attempts to place the device in their ear. Before they smile with joy, they may cry a bit. A range of emotions overtakes them. They’re anxious about what to expect. But ultimately, with restored hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them. These videos can even cause tears of joy 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 rather apprehensive about this process it doesn’t mean you’re a baby.
Let’s investigate how people of any age might cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.
Music to your ears
You might not have even noticed it. It happened so slowly. You don’t take pleasure in music like you once did. You’re just not that into it now. It even annoys you sometimes. And the louder it gets the more grating it gets.
It’s not just volume that is effected by hearing loss. It affects how you hear different tones and notes.
Every musician knows that the notes work together to make a single sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. If you can’t hear the splendid complexity of music, it’s just not the same.
Those tones that were once missing in music will be enjoyed once more when you use hearing aids. Once more, music comes to life. 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? You might have forgotten this wonderful sound experience if you’ve chosen not to wear your hearing aids. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids by rejuvenating your hearing.
Relationships can be significantly strained by untreated hearing loss. It annoys people and causes misunderstandings. They tend to argue more. It can even cause an individual with hearing loss to seclude themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
They might stay away from social clubs or dinner out because they feel alone and disconnected while others are chatting.
Hobbies less enjoyable so you’ve given many of them up?
The simple act of getting your hearing back will revive your relationships with a significant other, brothers and sisters, kids, and friends.
Learn to talk to each other again. Talk long into the night. Do all of the things you enjoy with the people you love.
If you miss this in your life, it’s time to reassess that hearing aid.
Feeling safer in your home
Are you worried that you may be missing significant safety sounds? If a loved one was injured and yelling out to you, would you hear them? Would you be able to hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
When you walk through the neighborhood, are you sure that you’ll hear oncoming traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
These “what if’s” can cause us to feel insecure in places where we should feel totally comfortable. But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more confident, and enjoy life to its fullest. You’ll experience peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you might not even know about it
You might not even know what you’re missing, much like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. Hearing loss advances gradually in most situations. It’s possible that you have forgotten what hearing well is like.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be surprised. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. Think your hearing loss isn’t that bad? Call us today to schedule a hearing exam and see what you’ve been missing.
