TikTok has some really awesome videos you’ve most likely seen. Babies hearing the voice of their mother for the first time after being fitted for a hearing aid. In some videos, the baby is uncertain at first. When the doctor attempts to place the hearing aid in their ears, they fight against it. Before they smile with joy, they may cry a bit. They’re overtaken with a host of emotions. They’re apprehensive about what to expect. But ultimately, with restored hearing, the world abruptly opens up for them. The laughter and the smiles are enough to cause you to erupt into tears of joy!
But this life-changing event could happen for anyone.
If you’re feeling apprehensive about wearing a hearing aid, you’re not alone. You don’t have to be a baby to feel a little wary of this new experience.
Let’s investigate how people of any age might cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.
Music to your ears
Perhaps you didn’t even know. It advanced so gradually. You stopped listening to music. It just doesn’t seem as satisfying as it once did. It even aggravates you sometimes. Turning the volume up makes it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t just effect the volume you can hear. It impacts how you hear different tones and notes.
All musicians know that the notes flow together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. If you can’t hear the splendid complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
When you wear your hearing aid, all of a sudden you can hear those once-missing tones. Once again, music comes alive. It was once a wonderful pleasure in your life and now you have it back.
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 wear your hearing aids. Restore your hearing and rediscover these enchanting moments with your grandkids.
Relationships can be significantly strained by disregarded hearing loss. It frustrates people and causes misunderstandings. It can often lead to more arguing. It can even cause a person with hearing loss to separate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
They might 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 basic act of getting your hearing back will revive your relationships with a significant other, siblings, kids, and friends.
Learn to talk to each other again. Have long talks. Get back to doing the things you enjoy and being with people you love.
If you’re missing this in your life, it’s time to reconsider that hearing aid.
Feeling more secure in your home
Are you worried that you could be missing essential safety sounds? If a loved one was injured and calling out to you, would you hear them? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm sounded, could you hear them? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
When you walk through the neighborhood, are you positive that you’ll hear approaching traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
When we are in places where we should feel quite safe, hearing loss can cause us to feel quite anxious. 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 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 progresses slowly in most situations. You might simply forget the pleasure of things you no longer hear.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be astonished. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. Think your hearing loss isn’t that advanced? Give us a call today to schedule a hearing test and see what you’ve been missing.
