You’ve watched the videos on TikTok. Babies hearing their mother’s voices for the first time after being fitted for a hearing aid. In some of these videos, the baby is uncertain initially. When the doctor attempts to put the hearing aid in their ears, they put up a fight. Before they smile with joy, they may cry a bit. They’re overwhelmed with a range of emotions. 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 people watching them.
But anyone can have this life-altering moment.
You’re not by yourself if you’re feeling anxious about getting hearing aids. You don’t have to be a child to feel a little careful about this new experience.
When individuals of any age experience hearing aids they might cry tears of joy, let’s discover why.
Music to your ears
You may not have even recognized it. It developed so slowly. You quit 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 simply volume that is impacted by hearing loss. Sometimes, only specific frequencies of sound are effected.
Every musician knows that the notes work together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. Music just isn’t the same if you can’t hear the wonderful complexity of the notes.
When you use your hearing aid, suddenly you can hear those once-silent notes. Music once more comes to life! It becomes a wonderful joy in your life that you’ve lost.
The laughter of a child
Do you recall the sound of a child laughing? You may have forgotten this wonderful sound experience if you have chosen not to use your hearing aids. Rejuvenate your ability to hear and rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids.
Relationships can be substantially strained by disregarded hearing loss. It frustrates people and causes misconceptions. It can frequently result in more arguing. And the individual with hearing loss will frequently feel like a burden causing them to seclude themselves.
They may stay away from social clubs or dinner out because they feel secluded and disconnected while others are chatting.
Have you given up hobbies because they aren’t as enjoyable?
Your relationships with your kids, friends, and your partner will have new life breathed into them when you get your hearing back.
Regain your ability to talk to each other. Converse long into the night. Go 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.
You feel safer at home
Do you feel troubled about what you’re unable to hear? Would you be able to hear the voice of a hurt loved one calling you from the other room? Would you hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm? Could you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
Do you worry that you won’t hear oncoming traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a walk?
When we are in places where we should feel quite safe, hearing loss can make us feel quite anxious. But you put yourself at ease and more completely enjoy life when you use hearing aids. This is called peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t realize how much you’re missing
Much like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you might not realize what you’re missing. Hearing loss advances slowly in most instances. You might simply forget the joy of things you no longer hear.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be astonished. You’ll regret letting it go this long. Think you might have some level of hearing loss? Call us today to schedule a hearing test and discover what you’ve been missing.
