TikTok has some really amazing videos you’ve probably watched. Babies, after they just get hearing aids, hearing the voice of their mother for the first time. In some videos, the baby is hesitant at first. When the doctor attempts to put the hearing aid in their ears, they fight against it. Before they smile with delight, they might cry a bit. They’re overtaken with a host of emotions. 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 those watching them.
But this life-changing event could occur for anyone.
If you’re feeling apprehensive about wearing a hearing aid, you’re not alone. You don’t have to be a child to feel a little careful about this new experience.
When people of any age experience hearing aids they may cry tears of joy, let’s discover why.
Music to your ears
You might not have even recognized it. It developed so slowly. You quit listening to music. It just doesn’t seem as satisfying as it once did. It even aggravates you sometimes. Turning the volume up makes it even worse.
It’s not just volume that is effected by hearing loss. In some cases, only specific notes of sound are impacted.
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’s just not the same.
When you wear your hearing aid, suddenly you can hear those once-missing tones. Music once more comes alive! It was once a wonderful pleasure in your life and now you have it back.
A child’s laughter
Do you recall what a child’s laughter sounds like? You may have forgotten this beautiful sound experience if you’ve chosen not to use your hearing aids. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren by rejuvenating your hearing.
Relationships can be substantially strained by neglected hearing loss. It frustrates people and causes misunderstandings. It can often bring about more arguing. It can even cause an individual with hearing loss to isolate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
They may stay away from social clubs or dinner out because they feel secluded and disconnected while others are chatting.
Have you abandoned hobbies because they’re not as fun?
Your relationships with your children, friends, and your significant other will have new life breathed into them when you get your hearing back.
Restore your ability to talk to each other. Talk long into the night. Go back to doing the things you enjoy and being with people you love.
If you miss this in your life, it’s time to reassess that hearing aid.
Feeling safer in your home
Do you feel troubled about what you’re unable to hear? If a loved one was hurt and calling out to you, would you hear them? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector sounded, would you be able to hear them? Would you miss the ringing of the phone when a significant call was coming in?
When you stroll through the neighborhood, are you sure that you’ll hear approaching traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
These “what if’s” can make us feel insecure in places where we should feel perfectly safe. But you put yourself at ease and more thoroughly enjoy life when you use hearing aids. You’ll experience peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you might not even know about it
You might not even know what you’re missing, much like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. Hearing loss advances gradually in most instances. It’s possible that you’ve forgotten what hearing well is like.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be amazed. You’ll wish you dealt with it sooner. Think you may have some degree of hearing loss? Find out just what you’ve been missing by giving us a call for a hearing test.
