TikTok has some really amazing videos you’ve most likely seen. Babies hearing their mother’s voices for the first time after getting a hearing aid. In some videos, the baby is hesitant 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. They’re overtaken with a host of emotions. They’re anxious about what to expect. But in the end, with revived hearing, the world abruptly opens up for them. These videos can even cause tears of joy for those watching them.
But anybody can have this life-changing moment.
If you’re feeling apprehensive about wearing a hearing aid, you’re not by yourself. You don’t have to be a child to feel a bit wary of this new experience.
Let’s investigate how people of all ages might cry tears of joy when they use their hearing aid.
The sweet sound of music
Maybe you didn’t even know. It advanced so slowly. You don’t appreciate music like you used to. It just doesn’t seem as satisfying anymore. At times, it is even grating. And the higher the volume the more annoying it becomes.
Hearing loss doesn’t only effect the volume you can hear. Sometimes, only specific notes of sound are effected.
Every musician knows that the notes flow together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves move into your ears. Music just isn’t the same if you are unable to hear the amazing complexity of the notes.
Those tones that were once lost in music will be enjoyed once again when you use hearing aids. Music once more comes alive! It becomes a great pleasure in your life that was lost.
A child’s laughter
Do you recall the sound of a child laughing? If you’ve been reluctant to wear your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how amazing this experience can be. Rediscover these captivating moments with your grandchildren by restoring your hearing.
Untreated hearing loss can put a considerable strain on relationships. It frustrates people and causes misunderstandings. It can frequently result in more arguing. It can even cause an individual with hearing loss to separate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
While others are talking and enjoying each other’s company, the individual with hearing loss will feel disconnected and will often isolate themselves.
Have you abandoned hobbies because they’re not 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. Go back to doing the things you love and spending time with people you love.
If you’re missing this in your life, it’s time to reassess that hearing aid.
You feel more secure at home
Are you worried that you may be missing essential safety sounds? Would you be able to hear the voice of a hurt loved one yelling to you from the other room? Would you hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector? Could you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ringing?
Do you worry that you won’t hear oncoming traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a stroll?
These “what if’s” can cause us to feel unsafe in places where we should feel totally safe. But you put yourself at ease and more thoroughly enjoy life when you get hearing aids. This is called peace of mind.
Whatever you’re missing, you may not even know about it
You may not even know what you’re missing, just like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. 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 regret letting it go this long. Think you may have some degree of hearing loss? Call us today to schedule a hearing assessment and discover what you’ve been missing.
