TikTok has some really awesome videos you’ve most likely watched. 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 fight against it. They could cry before they smile with delight. A range of emotions overtakes them. They don’t know 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 anybody can have this life-changing moment.
If you’re feeling anxious about wearing a hearing aid, you’re not alone. You don’t have to be a baby to feel a bit wary of this new experience.
Let’s explore how people of any age may cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.
The sweet sound of music
You might not have even noticed it. It advanced so slowly. You stopped listening to music. You’re just not that into it nowadays. At times, it is even grating. And the higher the volume the more annoying it gets.
Hearing loss doesn’t only impact the volume you can hear. It affects how you hear different tones and notes.
Music is made of notes of sound that mix and travel as waves that are then picked up by your ears. Music is just not the same if you can’t hear the amazing complexity of the notes.
When you use your hearing aid, all of a sudden you can hear those once-silent tones. Music once more comes to life! It was once a great pleasure in your life and now you have it back.
A child’s laughter
Do you recollect the sound of a child laughing? If you’ve been reluctant to wear your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be. Rejuvenate your hearing and rediscover these enchanting moments with your grandkids.
Untreated hearing loss can place a significant strain on relationships. It annoys people and causes misunderstandings. They often argue more. And the individual with hearing loss will often feel like a burden causing them to seclude themselves.
They may stay away from social clubs or dinner out because they feel secluded and disconnected while others are chatting.
Hobbies less satisfying so you’ve given many of them up?
The simple act of getting your hearing back will revive your relationships with a partner, brothers and sisters, children, and friends.
Restore your ability to talk to each other. Have long conversations. Do all of the things you enjoy with the people you love.
If you’re missing this in your life, it’s time to reassess that hearing aid.
Feeling more secure in your home
Are you stressed that you could be missing essential safety sounds? Would you be able to hear the voice of an injured loved one yelling to you from the other room? Would you hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm? Could you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
When you stroll through the neighborhood, are you confident that you’ll hear approaching 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 anxious. But you put yourself at ease and more thoroughly enjoy life when you get hearing aids. This is called peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t know how much you’re missing
You may not even know what you’re missing, much like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. Hearing loss progresses gradually in most situations. You may simply forget the joy 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 you may have some level of hearing loss? Find out exactly what you’ve been missing by giving us a call for a hearing exam.
