TikTok has some really amazing videos you’ve probably watched. Babies, after they just get fitted for hearing aids, hearing the voice of their mother for the first time. Sometimes, initially, the baby is reluctant. When the doctor tries to put the hearing aid in their ears, they put up a fight. They may cry before they smile with delight. A variety of emotions overtakes them. They don’t know 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 anybody can have this life-altering moment.
If you’re feeling concerned about using a hearing aid, you’re not by yourself. If you’re feeling relatively apprehensive about this process it doesn’t mean you’re a baby.
Let’s investigate how individuals of any age might cry tears of joy when they use their hearing aid.
Music to your ears
You may not have even recognized it. It progressed so slowly. You quit listening to music. You’re just not that into it nowadays. Sometimes, it is even grating. Turning it up makes it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t just impact the volume of sound. Sometimes, only specific notes of sound are impacted.
All musicians know that the notes flow together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. If you can’t hear the magnificent complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
When you wear your hearing aid, suddenly you can hear those once-missing notes. Once again, music comes alive. It becomes a wonderful pleasure in your life that you’ve lost.
The laughter of a child
Do you recall what a child’s laughing sounds like? If you’ve been hesitant to wear your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how amazing this experience can be. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren by restoring 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 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 person with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will often separate themselves.
Have you quit hobbies because they aren’t as fun?
The basic act of getting your hearing back will revive your relationships with a partner, brothers and sisters, children, and friends.
Learn to talk to each other again. Have long conversations. Get back to doing the things you love and spending time with people you love.
If you’re missing this in your life, it’s time to reconsider that hearing aid.
Feeling more secure in your home
Are you concerned that you may be missing significant safety sounds? Would you hear the voice of an injured loved one yelling to you from another room? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm sounded, could you hear them? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ringing?
When you walk through the neighborhood, are you positive that you’ll hear approaching traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
When we are in places where we should feel very safe, hearing loss can cause us to feel quite uneasy. But when you use your hearing aid, you can be more comfortable, and enjoy life to its fullest. You’ll find peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t know how much you’re missing
You might not even know what you’re missing, just like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. In most situations, hearing loss is a slow progressive process. It’s possible that you’ve forgotten what hearing well is like.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be surprised. You’ll regret letting it go this long. Think your hearing loss isn’t that advanced? Call us today to schedule a hearing exam and find out what you’ve been missing.
