You’ve watched the videos on TikTok. Babies, after they just get fitted for hearing aids, hearing their mother’s voice for the first time. Sometimes, at first, the baby is resistant. When the doctor attempts to put the hearing aid in their ears, they fight against it. They might cry before they smile with delight. A variety of emotions overtakes them. They’re apprehensive 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 burst into tears of joy!
But anybody can have this life-changing moment.
You’re not alone if you’re feeling anxious about getting hearing aids. If you’re feeling relatively anxious about this process it doesn’t indicate that you’re a baby.
When people 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 progressed so gradually. You stopped listening to music. It just doesn’t seem as satisfying as it once did. At times, it is even grating. And the higher the volume the more grating it becomes.
It’s not simply volume that is impacted by hearing loss. Sometimes, only specific frequencies of sound are impacted.
All musicians know that the notes work together to make a single sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. If you can’t hear the splendid complexity of music, it’s just not the same.
Those tones that were once lost in music will be enjoyed once again when you use hearing aids. Once again, music comes alive. It was once a wonderful pleasure in your life and now you have it back.
A child’s laughter
Do you recollect the sound of a child laughing? You might have forgotten this wonderful sound experience if you have chosen not to use your hearing aids. Restore your ability to hear and rediscover these enchanting moments with your grandkids.
Neglected hearing loss can place a significant strain on relationships. People get aggravated. They often argue more. And the person with hearing loss will often feel like a burden causing them to seclude themselves.
While others are talking and enjoying one another’s company, the person with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will often separate themselves.
Have you abandoned hobbies because they aren’t as fun?
Your relationships with your children, friends, and your significant other will have new life breathed into them when you get your hearing back.
Learn to talk to each other again. Engage in 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 safer in your home
Are you concerned that you may be missing essential safety sounds? If a loved one was hurt and calling out to you, would you be able to hear them? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector sounded, could you hear them? Would you miss the phone ringing when an important call was coming in?
Do you worry that you won’t be able to hear oncoming traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a stroll?
When we are in places where we should feel very secure, hearing loss can cause us to feel quite anxious. But you put yourself at ease and more completely enjoy life when you get hearing aids. You’ll experience peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t know how much you’re missing
You may not even know what you’re missing, much like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. Hearing loss advances gradually in most instances. You might simply forget the joy of things you no longer hear.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be surprised. You’ll regret letting it go this long. Think your hearing loss isn’t that advanced? Contact us today to schedule a hearing assessment and find out what you’ve been missing.
