TikTok has some really amazing videos you’ve most likely watched. Babies hearing the voice of their mother for the first time after getting a hearing aid. Sometimes, at first, the baby is resistant. When the doctor attempts to place the hearing aid in their ears, they put up a fight. They may cry before they smile with joy. They’re overwhelmed with a host of emotions. They’re apprehensive about what to expect. But finally, their hearing is restored and the world suddenly opens up. The laughter and the smiles are enough to cause you to burst into tears of joy!
But this life-changing moment could happen for anyone.
If you’re feeling anxious about using a hearing aid, you’re not alone. If you’re feeling relatively apprehensive 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
You might not have even noticed it. It progressed so gradually. You stopped listening to music. It just doesn’t seem as enjoyable anymore. Sometimes, it is even aggravating. And the louder it gets the more annoying it becomes.
It’s not just volume that is effected by hearing loss. In some cases, only specific tones of sound are effected.
Music is composed of notes of sound that mix together and travel as waves that are then picked up by your ears. Music just isn’t the same if you can’t hear the fantastic complexity of the notes.
When you use your hearing aid, all of a sudden you can hear those once-missing tones. Music once more comes to life! It was once a wonderful pleasure in your life and now you’ve got it back.
A child’s laughter
Do you remember what a child’s laughter sounds like? You might have forgotten this beautiful sound experience if you’ve chosen not to use your hearing aids. Rejuvenate your hearing and rediscover these enchanting moments with your grandkids.
Relationships can be substantially strained by disregarded hearing loss. It annoys people and causes misunderstandings. 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 one another’s company, the individual with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will frequently isolate themselves.
Hobbies less pleasurable so you’ve given many of them up?
The basic act of getting your hearing back will revive your relationships with a significant other, siblings, kids, and friends.
Learn to speak with one another again. Engage in long talks. Get back to doing the things you love and being with people you love.
If you miss this in your life, it’s time to reconsider that hearing aid.
You feel more secure at home
Do you feel troubled about what you’re unable to hear? Would you hear the voice of a hurt loved one calling you from the other room? If the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector sounded, could you hear them? Could you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ringing?
When you stroll through the neighborhood, are you confident that you’ll hear approaching traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
When we are in places where we should feel very secure, hearing loss can cause us to feel quite uneasy. But you put yourself at ease and more completely enjoy life when you get hearing aids. This is called peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you may not even realize it
Much like the babies who’ve never heard their mother’s voices, you might not appreciate what you’re missing. In most instances, hearing loss is a slow 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 addressed it sooner. Think your hearing loss isn’t that bad? Contact us today to schedule a hearing assessment and find out what you’ve been missing.
