You’ve watched the videos on TikTok. Babies hearing the voice of their mother for the first time after being fitted for a hearing aid. In some videos, the baby is hesitant initially. When the doctor attempts to put the hearing aid in their ears, they put up a fight. They may cry before they smile with joy. A variety of emotions envelopes them. They don’t know what to expect. But finally, their hearing is revived and the world suddenly opens up. The smiles and the laughter are enough to cause you to burst into tears of joy!
But this life-changing moment could occur for anyone.
You’re not alone if you’re feeling apprehensive about getting hearing aids. If you’re feeling relatively anxious about this process it doesn’t indicate that you’re a baby.
When individuals of any age experience hearing aids they might cry tears of joy, let’s explore why.
Music to your ears
Maybe you didn’t even know. It developed so slowly. You don’t appreciate music like you used to. You’re just not that into it nowadays. It even annoys you sometimes. Turning the volume up makes it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t only impact the volume of sound. Sometimes, only specific frequencies of sound are impacted.
Music is composed of notes of sound that mix together and travel as waves that are then detected by your ears. Music just isn’t the same if you are unable to hear the fantastic complexity of the notes.
Those notes that were once lost in music will be enjoyed once more when you get hearing aids. Music once more comes to life! It becomes a wonderful joy in your life that was lost.
A child’s laughter
Do you recall the sound of a child laughing? You might have forgotten this wonderful sound experience if you have chosen not to use your hearing aids. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandchildren by restoring your hearing.
Neglected hearing loss can place a significant strain on relationships. People get irritated. They often argue more. It can even cause a person with hearing loss to isolate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
While others are talking and enjoying each other’s company, the person with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will often separate themselves.
Have you abandoned hobbies because they’re not as fun?
Your relationships with your children, friends, and your partner will have new life breathed into them when you get your hearing back.
Learn to speak with each other again. Talk long into the night. Go back to doing the things you love and being with people you love.
It’s time to consider hearing aids if you’re missing these things in your life.
Feeling safer in your home
Do you feel troubled about what you’re unable to hear? If a loved one was injured and yelling out to you, would you be able to hear them? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm sounded, would you be able to hear them? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
When you walk through the neighborhood, are you positive that you’ll hear oncoming traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
When we are in places where we should feel very safe, hearing loss can make us feel quite uneasy. But when you use your hearing aid, you can be more at ease, and enjoy life to its fullest. This is known as peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t know how much you’re missing
Much like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you might not know what you’re missing. Hearing loss advances slowly in most cases. It’s possible that you’ve forgotten what hearing well is like.
You’ll be amazed when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. Think your hearing loss isn’t that bad? Find out exactly what you’ve been missing by giving us a call for a hearing assessment.
