TikTok has some really awesome videos you’ve most likely seen. Babies, after they just get hearing aids, hearing the voice of their mother for the first time. In some videos, the baby is hesitant at first. They fight when the doctor attempts to place the device in their ear. They might cry before they smile with delight. A variety of emotions overtakes them. They are not sure what to expect. But finally, their hearing is revived and the world suddenly opens up. The smiles and the laughter are enough to cause you to erupt into tears of joy!
But this life-changing event could occur for anybody.
You’re not alone if you’re feeling apprehensive about getting hearing aids. You don’t have to be a child to feel a bit wary of this new experience.
Let’s investigate how individuals of all ages might cry tears of joy when they use their hearing aid.
Music to your ears
Perhaps you didn’t even realize. It happened so slowly. You stopped listening to music. It just doesn’t seem as enjoyable anymore. It even aggravates you sometimes. Turning the volume up makes it even worse.
It’s not simply volume that is impacted by hearing loss. In some cases, only certain tones of sound are effected.
All musicians know that the notes flow together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. Music is just not the same if you can’t hear the wonderful complexity of the notes.
Those notes that were once missing in music will be appreciated once again when you use hearing aids. Music once more comes to life! It was once a wonderful pleasure in your life and now you’ve got it back.
A child’s laughter
Do you recall what a child’s laughing sounds like? If you’ve been hesitant to use your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be. Restore your hearing and rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids.
Untreated hearing loss can place a significant strain on relationships. It frustrates people and causes misunderstandings. It can often lead to more arguing. It can even cause a person with hearing loss to isolate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
While others are talking and enjoying one another’s company, the person with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will often isolate themselves.
Have you given up hobbies because they’re not 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 speak with one another again. Talk long into the night. 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 safer in your home
Are you stressed that you could be missing significant safety sounds? Would you be able to hear the voice of an injured loved one calling you from another room? Would you be able to hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector? Could you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ringing?
When you walk through the neighborhood, are you confident that you’ll hear approaching traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
These “what if’s” can make us feel unsafe in places where we should feel entirely safe. But when you use your hearing aid, you can be more comfortable, and enjoy life to its fullest. This is called peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you may not even realize it
Much like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you may not appreciate what you’re missing. Hearing loss advances slowly in most cases. It’s possible that you have forgotten what hearing well is like.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be surprised. You’ll regret letting it go this long. Think you might have some degree of hearing loss? Give us a call today to schedule a hearing exam and see what you’ve been missing.
