TikTok has some really awesome videos you’ve probably watched. Babies, after they just get fitted for hearing aids, hearing their mother’s voice for the first time. In some videos, the baby is uncertain initially. When the doctor tries to place the hearing aid in their ears, they put up a fight. They could cry before they smile with joy. A variety of emotions envelopes them. They are not sure what to expect. But finally, their hearing is restored and the world suddenly opens up. These videos can even cause tears of joy for people watching them.
But this life-changing event could occur for anyone.
You’re not by yourself if you’re feeling anxious about getting hearing aids. If you’re feeling relatively anxious about this process it doesn’t indicate that you’re a baby.
When individuals of any age experience hearing aids they may cry tears of joy, let’s discover why.
The sweet sound of music
Maybe you didn’t even realize. It happened so gradually. You stopped listening to music. You’re just not that into it nowadays. Sometimes, it is even grating. And the louder it gets the more annoying it gets.
Hearing loss doesn’t only effect the volume of sound. It affects how you hear different pitches and notes.
Every musician knows that the notes flow together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. If you can’t hear the magnificent complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
Those tones that were once lost in music will be appreciated once again when you get hearing aids. Once more, music comes alive. It becomes a wonderful pleasure in your life that was lost.
A child’s laughter
Do you recall what a child’s laughter sounds like? If you’ve been reluctant to use your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how amazing this experience can be. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids by restoring your hearing.
Relationships can be significantly strained by untreated hearing loss. It frustrates people and causes misconceptions. It can often result in more arguing. And the individual with hearing loss will frequently feel like a burden causing them to isolate themselves.
While others are talking and enjoying each other’s company, the individual with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will frequently separate themselves.
Hobbies less enjoyable so you’ve given many of them up?
Your relationships with your kids, friends, and your significant other will have new life breathed into them when you get your hearing back.
Restore your ability to speak with each other. Talk long into the night. Do all of the things you love with the people you love.
If you miss this in your life, it’s time to reconsider that hearing aid.
Feeling safer in your home
Do you feel anxious about what you’re unable to hear? 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 the ringing of the phone when an important call was coming in?
Do you worry that you won’t be able to hear approaching traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a stroll?
When we are in places where we should feel quite secure, hearing loss can cause us to feel quite uneasy. But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more comfortable, and enjoy life to its fullest. You’ll experience peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t know how much you’re missing
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 instances. You may simply forget the pleasure of things you no longer hear.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be surprised. You’ll wish you dealt with it sooner. Think you might have some level of hearing loss? Give us a call today to schedule a hearing exam and find out what you’ve been missing.
