TikTok has some really amazing videos you’ve probably seen. Babies hearing the voice of their mother for the first time after getting a hearing aid. In some of these videos, the baby is uncertain initially. They struggle when the doctor attempts to place the device in their ear. They may cry before they smile with joy. They’re overwhelmed with a range of emotions. They’re anxious about 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.
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 may cry tears of joy, let’s explore why.
Music to your ears
Perhaps you didn’t even realize. It developed so gradually. You don’t take pleasure in music like you once did. It just doesn’t seem as satisfying anymore. It even aggravates you sometimes. Turning the volume up makes it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t only effect the volume you can hear. It impacts how you hear different tones and notes.
Every musician knows that the notes flow together to make a single sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. If you can’t hear the splendid complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
When you wear your hearing aid, all of a sudden you can hear those once-silent tones. Once again, music comes alive. It becomes a wonderful joy in your life that was lost.
A child’s laughter
Do you recollect the sound of a child laughing? If you’ve been hesitant to wear your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids by rejuvenating your hearing.
Untreated hearing loss can place a significant strain on relationships. It frustrates people and causes misunderstandings. They tend to argue more. It can even cause an individual with hearing loss to seclude 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 isolate themselves.
Have you given up hobbies because they aren’t as fun?
The basic act of getting your hearing back will revive your relationships with a partner, siblings, children, and friends.
Learn to talk to one another again. Converse long into the night. Do all of the things you love with the 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 anxious about what you can’t hear? If a loved one was hurt and yelling out to you, would you hear them? Would you hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
Do you worry that you won’t be able to hear oncoming traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a stroll?
These “what if’s” can cause us to feel insecure in places where we should feel entirely comfortable. But you put yourself at ease and more completely enjoy life when you get hearing aids. You’ll find peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you might not even know about it
Much like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you might not appreciate what you’re missing. In most situations, hearing loss is a gradual progressive process. It’s possible that you have forgotten what hearing well is like.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be surprised. You’ll regret neglecting it this long. Think you may have some level of hearing loss? Find out exactly what you’ve been missing by giving us a call for a hearing exam.
