TikTok has some really awesome videos you’ve most likely seen. Babies, after they just get hearing aids, hearing their mother’s voice for the first time. In some of these videos, the baby is uncertain at first. When the doctor attempts to put the hearing aid in their ears, they put up a fight. They could cry before they smile with delight. They’re overwhelmed with a range of emotions. They are not sure what to expect. But finally, their hearing is revived and the world suddenly opens up. These videos can even cause tears of joy for people watching them.
But this life-changing moment could occur for anybody.
You’re not by yourself if you’re feeling anxious about getting hearing aids. You don’t have to be a baby to feel a little wary of this new experience.
When people of any age experience hearing aids they might cry tears of joy, let’s discover why.
The sweet sound of music
You might not have even recognized it. It progressed so gradually. You stopped listening to music. You’re just not that into it anymore. It even annoys you at times. And the higher the volume the more annoying it becomes.
It isn’t just volume that is effected by hearing loss. It impacts how you hear different tones and notes.
Every musician knows that the notes flow together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. Music just isn’t the same if you are unable to hear the amazing complexity of the notes.
Those tones that were once missing in music will be appreciated once more when you get hearing aids. Music once more comes alive! It becomes a wonderful joy in your life that you’ve lost.
A child’s laughter
Do you remember what a child’s laughing sounds like? If you’ve been reluctant to use your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how amazing this experience can be. Restore your ability to hear and rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren.
Untreated hearing loss can put a significant strain on relationships. It frustrates people and causes misunderstandings. It can often bring about more arguing. It can even cause a person with hearing loss to isolate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
They might avoid social clubs or dinner out because they feel alone and disconnected while others are chatting.
Hobbies less pleasurable so you’ve given many of them up?
Your relationships with your children, friends, and your partner will have new life breathed into them when you get your hearing back.
Learn to speak with one another again. Talk long into the night. Get back to doing the things you love and being with people you love.
It’s time to think about hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.
Feeling more secure in your home
Do you feel troubled about what you’re unable to hear? If a loved one was hurt and yelling out to you, would you be able to hear them? Would you hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector? 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 oncoming traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a walk?
These “what if’s” can make us feel unsafe in places where we should feel totally safe. But you put yourself at ease and more completely enjoy life when you use hearing aids. You’ll find peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you might not even realize it
You may not even be aware of 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 slow progressive process. You might simply forget the joy of things you no longer hear.
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.
