TikTok has some really awesome videos you’ve probably watched. Babies hearing the voice of their mother for the first time after getting a hearing aid. In some of these videos, the baby is hesitant initially. 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 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 those watching them.
But this life-changing moment could happen for anybody.
If you’re feeling concerned about wearing a hearing aid, you’re not alone. If you’re feeling relatively apprehensive about this process it doesn’t mean you’re a baby.
Let’s investigate how individuals of all ages might cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.
The sweet sound of music
Perhaps you didn’t even know. It advanced so gradually. You quit listening to music. You’re just not that into it now. It even aggravates you at times. And the louder it gets the more grating it becomes.
Hearing loss doesn’t only impact the volume of sound. It affects how you hear different tones and notes.
Music is composed of notes of sound that unify and travel as waves that are then detected by your ears. Music just isn’t the same if you are unable to hear the amazing complexity of the notes.
When you wear your hearing aid, all of a sudden you can hear those once-silent tones. Music once more comes to life! It becomes a great joy in your life that was lost.
A child’s laughter
Do you recollect the sound of a child laughing? If you’ve been reluctant to use your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be. Rejuvenate your hearing and rediscover these enchanting moments with your grandkids.
Relationships can be significantly strained by untreated hearing loss. It annoys people and causes misunderstandings. It can frequently lead to more arguing. And the individual with hearing loss will frequently feel like a burden causing them to isolate themselves.
They may stay away from social clubs or dinner out because they feel alone and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Hobbies less enjoyable so you’ve given many of them up?
The simple act of getting your hearing back will revive your relationships with a significant other, siblings, kids, and friends.
Regain your ability to talk to each other. Have long talks. 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.
Feeling more secure in your home
Are you stressed that you could be missing essential safety sounds? If a loved one was hurt and calling out to you, would you hear them? 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 ring?
Do you worry that you won’t hear approaching traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a stroll?
These “what if’s” can make us feel insecure in places where we should feel completely confident. But when you use your hearing aid, you can be more confident, and enjoy life to its fullest. You’ll experience peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you may not even realize it
Just like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you may not know what you’re missing. In most situations, hearing loss is a gradual progressive process. It’s possible that you’ve forgotten what hearing well is like.
You’ll be surprised when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll wish you dealt with it sooner. Think your hearing loss isn’t that bad? Give us a call today to schedule a hearing assessment and find out what you’ve been missing.
