Have you viewed the videos on YouTube? A 7-month old baby hears his mother’s voice for the first time after being having hearing aids fitted. You may find yourself crying tears of joy when you see the smile on his face.
Videos similar to this one are numerous online. You can share that wonderful moment with the child, the parents, and their physicians.
The baby doesn’t always take to the idea of having hearing aids put in initially. They struggle when the doctor attempts to fit the device on their ear. They might cry before they smile with joy. They are overtaken by a wide range of emotions. They don’t know what to expect. But ultimately, with renewed hearing, the world immediately opens up for them.
They beam with happiness, but that life-changing moment can happen to anybody.
Are you feeling apprehensive about using a hearing aid? You’re not alone. People of all ages can be a bit nervous about this.
Let’s investigate how people of all ages may cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.
The Sound of Music
You might not have even recognized the issues. It was a very gradual development. You stopped listening to music. It just didn’t seem as pleasant anymore. Sometimes, it was even grating. It got even worse when you cranked up the volume.
Hearing loss doesn’t just effect the volume you can hear. It impacts how you hear different frequencies and notes.
Music is, as every musician knows, a wonderful blend of sound frequencies that meld together to produce the sound that we hear as…., well, music. If you can’t hear the spectacular complexity of music, it’s just not the same.
But put on your hearing aid. Now, those notes which were once muted can be vibrantly heard. Music again comes alive. You had lost that joy in your life, but now you have it again.
The Laughter of a Child
Is the sound of a child’s laughter something you can recall? If you’ve been unwilling to wear your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how amazing this experience can be.
Rediscover these wonderful moments with your grandchildren by restoring your hearing.
The Beautiful Sounds of Nature
Have you forgotten that lots of birds live in your backyard? If you go to the park there will be hundreds. You never recognized how much you liked their chirps until they were gone.
Except there not gone. You just can’t hear these joyful melodies that so enhance your life.
But when you put in your hearing aids those beautiful sounds of nature come back to enhance your life once more.
Neglected hearing impairment can put significant strain on relationships. People become frustrated. They do not understand. They tend to argue more. It can even cause a person with hearing loss to seclude themselves, so they don’t feel as if they are a burden.
They often feel all alone and disconnected from other people’s conversations causing them to avoid going out to dinner or other social activities.
Are hobbies you once enjoyed less enjoyable now so you’ve given them up?
Your relationship with family and friends will be revitalized by the basic act of using hearing aids.
Get accustomed to talking to each other again. Have long conversations. Get back to doing the things you enjoy and being with people you love.
If you miss this in your life, it’s time to reconsider that hearing aid.
Feeling Safer in Your Home
Do you feel anxious about what you can’t hear? If a loved one was hurt and calling for help in another room, would you hear them? Would you hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector? Maybe you would miss an important phone call because you couldn’t hear it ring.
When you walk around the neighborhood, are you certain that you’ll hear oncoming traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
There are places where we should feel perfectly safe but because of these “what ifs” we don’t.
But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more at ease, and enjoy life to its fullest extent. You’ll experience peace of mind.
You Might Not Know What You’re Missing
Hearing loss advances slowly in most instances. You might have simply forgotten the pleasure of things you can’t hear anymore.
When you suddenly hear them again, you’ll be astonished. You’ll wish you took care of it sooner. If you don’t think your hearing loss is that severe, it’s time to get it looked at. Call us to schedule a hearing test.
