TikTok has some really amazing videos you’ve most likely seen. Babies hearing the voice of their mother for the first time after being fitted for a hearing aid. Sometimes, initially, the baby is resistant. They struggle when the doctor tries to place the device in their ear. They may cry before they smile with delight. A variety of emotions overtakes them. They don’t know what to expect. But ultimately, with revived hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them. These videos can even cause tears of joy for people watching them.
But this life-changing event could occur for anybody.
If you’re feeling anxious about using a hearing aid, you’re not alone. You don’t have to be a child to feel a bit wary of this new experience.
Let’s explore how individuals of all ages may cry tears of joy when they use their hearing aid.
The sweet sound of music
Perhaps you didn’t even know. It developed so slowly. You quit listening to music. You’re just not that into it nowadays. It even aggravates you sometimes. Turning it up makes it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t only impact the volume you can hear. In some cases, only certain notes of sound are effected.
Every musician knows that the notes work together to make a single sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. If you can’t hear the wonderful complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
When you use your hearing aid, suddenly you can hear those once-missing notes. Once again, music comes alive. It was once a great pleasure in your life and now you’ve got it back.
The laughter of a child
Do you remember what a child’s laughter sounds like? You might have forgotten this wonderful sound experience if you have chosen not to use your hearing aids. Rejuvenate your hearing and rediscover these enchanting moments with your grandkids.
Neglected hearing loss can put a significant strain on relationships. People get irritated. It can frequently result in more arguing. It can even cause a person with hearing loss to separate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
While others are chatting and enjoying one another’s company, the individual with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will frequently separate themselves.
Hobbies less pleasurable so you’ve given many of them up?
The basic act of getting your hearing back will revive your relationships with a significant other, brothers and sisters, kids, and friends.
Learn to speak with one another again. Converse long into the night. Get back to doing the things you enjoy 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 concerned that you could be missing significant safety sounds? Would you be able to hear the voice of a hurt loved one calling you from another room? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm sounded, would you be able to hear them? Would you miss the phone ringing when an important call was coming in?
When you walk through the neighborhood, are you sure that you’ll hear oncoming traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
When we are in places where we should feel very safe, hearing loss can make us feel quite anxious. But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more comfortable, and enjoy life to its fullest. This is known as peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t recognize how much you’re missing
You might not even know what you’re missing, much like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. In most situations, hearing loss is a gradual progressive process. It’s possible that you have forgotten what hearing well is like.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be amazed. You’ll regret neglecting it this long. Think your hearing loss isn’t that bad? Find out exactly what you’ve been missing by calling us for a hearing exam.
