TikTok has some really amazing videos you’ve probably seen. Babies, after they just get hearing aids, hearing the voice of their mother for the first time. In some of these videos, the baby is hesitant initially. When the doctor tries to put the hearing aid in their ears, they fight against it. They might cry before they smile with joy. A range of emotions envelopes them. They’re anxious about what to expect. But ultimately, with restored hearing, the world abruptly opens up for them. The laughter and the smiles are enough to cause you to erupt into tears of joy!
But this life-changing moment could occur for anybody.
If you’re feeling anxious about using a hearing aid, you’re not alone. If you’re feeling somewhat anxious about this process it doesn’t mean you’re a baby.
Let’s explore how people of any age might cry tears of joy when they use their hearing aid.
Music to your ears
You may not have even noticed it. It advanced so gradually. You don’t appreciate music like you used to. You’re just not that into it nowadays. Sometimes, it is even aggravating. Turning it up makes it even worse.
It’s not simply 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. If you can’t hear the magnificent complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
Those tones that were once missing in music will be appreciated once more when you use hearing aids. Once more, music comes alive. It was once a great pleasure in your life and now you’ve got it back.
A child’s laughter
Do you recall the sound of a child laughing? If you’ve been hesitant to use your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how amazing this experience can be. Restore your hearing and rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren.
Relationships can be substantially strained by untreated hearing loss. People get aggravated. 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.
They may avoid social clubs or dinner out because they feel alone and disconnected while others are chatting.
Have you abandoned hobbies because they aren’t as fun?
Your relationships with your children, 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. Do all of the things you love with the people you love.
It’s time to consider hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.
You feel safer at home
Are you concerned that you could be missing essential safety sounds? If a loved one was hurt and calling out to you, would you be able to 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?
When you walk through the neighborhood, are you confident 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 anxious. But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more at ease, and enjoy life to its fullest. This is known as 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. Hearing loss progresses slowly in most cases. It’s possible that you have forgotten what hearing well is like.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be astonished. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. Think your hearing loss isn’t that advanced? Find out just what you’ve been missing by giving us a call for a hearing assessment.
