You’ve seen the videos on TikTok. Babies hearing their mother’s voices for the first time after getting a hearing aid. In some videos, the baby is uncertain at first. When the doctor tries to put the hearing aid in their ears, they fight against it. Before they smile with joy, they might cry a bit. A range of emotions envelopes them. They’re anxious about what to expect. But ultimately, with revived hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them. These videos can even cause tears of joy for those watching them.
But this life-changing event could occur for anybody.
You’re not alone if you’re feeling anxious about getting hearing aids. You don’t have to be a baby to feel a bit careful about this new experience.
Let’s explore how individuals of all ages might cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.
Music to your ears
You might not have even recognized it. It occurred so gradually. You quit listening to music. You’re just not that into it nowadays. It even annoys you sometimes. Turning it up makes it even worse.
It isn’t just volume that is impacted by hearing loss. It affects how you hear different pitches and notes.
Every musician knows that the notes work 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’s just not the same.
Those notes that were once lost in music will be appreciated once again when you get hearing aids. Once more, 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 remember what a child’s laughter sounds like? You may have forgotten this wonderful sound experience if you have chosen not to wear your hearing aids. Rediscover these captivating moments with your grandkids by rejuvenating your hearing.
Neglected hearing loss can put a considerable strain on relationships. People get aggravated. It can often result in more arguing. And the individual with hearing loss will often feel like a burden causing them to isolate themselves.
While others are chatting and enjoying each other’s company, the person with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will often isolate themselves.
Hobbies less satisfying so you’ve given many of them up?
Your relationships with your kids, friends, and your partner will be revived when you get your hearing back.
Learn to talk to one another again. Converse 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 reassess that hearing aid.
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, would you be able to hear them? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
Do you stress that you won’t be able to hear oncoming traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a stroll?
These “what if’s” can make us feel unsafe in places where we should feel entirely safe. But you put yourself at ease and more thoroughly enjoy life when you get hearing aids. You’ll find peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t recognize how much you’re missing
You might not even be aware of 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 amazed. You’ll wish you dealt with it sooner. Think you may have some level of hearing loss? Call us today to schedule a hearing exam and discover what you’ve been missing.
