You’ve seen the videos on TikTok. Babies hearing the voice of their mother for the first time after being fitted for a hearing aid. In some of these videos, the baby is uncertain at first. When the doctor tries to put the hearing aid in their ears, they put up a fight. Before they smile with joy, they may cry a bit. A variety of emotions overtakes them. They’re anxious about what to expect. But finally, their hearing is revived and the world abruptly opens up. The laughter and the smiles are enough to cause you to erupt into tears of joy!
But anyone can have this life-altering moment.
If you’re feeling apprehensive about wearing a hearing aid, you’re not alone. If you’re feeling somewhat anxious about this process it doesn’t indicate that you’re a baby.
When individuals of any age experience hearing aids they may cry tears of joy, let’s explore why.
The sweet sound of music
You might not have even noticed it. It developed so gradually. You quit listening to music. You’re just not that into it now. It even aggravates you at times. Turning it up makes it even worse.
It’s not simply volume that is effected by hearing loss. It impacts how you hear different pitches and notes.
Music is made of notes of sound that mix and travel as waves that are then detected by your ears. If you can’t hear the splendid complexity of music, it’s just not the same.
When you use your hearing aid, all of a sudden you can hear those once-missing notes. Music once again comes to life! It becomes a great pleasure in your life that you’ve lost.
The laughter of a child
Do you remember what a child’s laughter sounds like? If you’ve been hesitant to wear your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be. Restore your hearing and rediscover these enchanting moments with your grandchildren.
Neglected hearing loss can put a considerable strain on relationships. It annoys people and causes misunderstandings. It can often bring about more arguing. It can even cause an individual with hearing loss to isolate 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 frequently separate themselves.
Have you given up hobbies because they’re not as fun?
The basic act of getting your hearing back will revive your relationships with a significant other, brothers and sisters, kids, and friends.
Learn to talk to each other again. Engage in long talks. Do all of the things you enjoy 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
Do you feel anxious about what you’re unable to hear? Would you hear the voice of an injured loved one calling you from the other room? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm sounded, could you hear them? Would you miss the phone ringing when an important call was coming in?
Do you stress that you won’t be able to hear approaching traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a walk?
These “what if’s” can cause us to feel insecure in places where we should feel perfectly confident. But you put yourself at ease and more completely enjoy life when you get hearing aids. This is known as peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t realize how much you’re missing
Just like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you may not know what you’re missing. Hearing loss progresses slowly in most cases. You may simply forget the pleasure of things you no longer hear.
You’ll be surprised when, suddenly, you can hear again. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. Think your hearing loss isn’t that advanced? Give us a call today to schedule a hearing assessment and discover what you’ve been missing.
