TikTok has some really awesome videos you’ve most likely seen. Babies, after they just get fitted for hearing aids, hearing their mother’s voice for the first time. Sometimes, initially, the baby is resistant. They struggle when the doctor tries to put the device in their ear. Before they smile with joy, they might cry a bit. A range of emotions overtakes them. They’re apprehensive about what to expect. But finally, their hearing is restored and the world abruptly opens up. The smiles and the laughter are enough to cause you to erupt into tears of joy!
But anyone can have this life-altering moment.
You’re not alone if you’re feeling anxious about getting hearing aids. If you’re feeling rather anxious about this process it doesn’t mean you’re a baby.
When individuals of any age experience hearing aids they might cry tears of joy, let’s discover why.
The sweet sound of music
Maybe you didn’t even realize. It occurred so slowly. You don’t take pleasure in music like you used to. It just doesn’t seem as enjoyable as it once did. It even aggravates you sometimes. And the louder it gets the more grating it becomes.
It’s not simply volume that is effected by hearing loss. In some cases, only specific frequencies of sound are effected.
Music is composed of notes of sound that mix together and travel as waves that are then picked up by your ears. If you can’t hear the splendid complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
When you wear your hearing aid, suddenly you can hear those once-missing notes. Once more, music comes to life. It was once a great pleasure in your life and now you’ve got it back.
The laughter of a child
Do you recall the sound of a child laughing? If you’ve been hesitant to wear your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be. Rejuvenate your ability to hear and rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren.
Relationships can be substantially strained by untreated hearing loss. It annoys people and causes misconceptions. They tend to argue more. And the individual with hearing loss will often feel like a burden causing them to isolate themselves.
They may avoid social clubs or dinner out because they feel secluded and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Have you quit hobbies because they’re not as enjoyable?
The simple act of getting your hearing back will revive your relationships with a significant other, siblings, kids, and friends.
Regain your ability to talk to each other. Have long talks. Go back to doing the things you love and spending time with people you love.
It’s time to think about hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.
Feeling safer in your home
Are you worried that you may be missing important safety sounds? Would you be able to hear the voice of an injured loved one yelling to you from another room? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm sounded, could you hear them? Would you miss the phone ringing when an important call was coming in?
Do you stress that you won’t hear oncoming traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a stroll?
These “what if’s” can cause us to feel unsafe in places where we should feel entirely safe. But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more comfortable, and enjoy life to its fullest. You’ll find peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you might not even know about it
Much like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you might not appreciate what you’re missing. In most situations, hearing loss is a slow progressive process. You might simply forget the joy of things you no longer hear.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be surprised. You’ll regret letting it go this long. Think your hearing loss isn’t that advanced? Find out exactly what you’ve been missing by calling us for a hearing test.
