TikTok has some really awesome videos you’ve most likely watched. Babies, after they just get hearing aids, hearing their mother’s voice for the first time. In some videos, the baby is hesitant at first. When the doctor tries to place the hearing aid in their ears, they put up a fight. They might cry before they smile with delight. They’re overtaken with a host of emotions. They are not sure what to expect. But ultimately, with restored hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them. These videos can even cause joyful tears for people watching them.
But anybody can have this life-altering moment.
If you’re feeling anxious about wearing a hearing aid, you’re not alone. You don’t have to be a baby to feel a bit wary of this new experience.
Let’s explore how individuals of any age might cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.
Music to your ears
You might not have even noticed it. It occurred so gradually. You don’t appreciate music like you once did. It just doesn’t seem as enjoyable as it once did. It even annoys you at times. Turning the volume up makes it even worse.
It isn’t simply volume that is effected by hearing loss. Sometimes, only certain notes of sound are impacted.
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 can’t hear the amazing complexity of the notes.
When you wear your hearing aid, suddenly you can hear those once-missing notes. Once again, music comes to life. It becomes a wonderful joy in your life that you’ve lost.
A child’s laughter
Do you recollect the sound of a child laughing? If you’ve been hesitant to use your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be. Rediscover these magical moments with your grandkids by rejuvenating your hearing.
Neglected hearing loss can put a considerable strain on relationships. People get frustrated. They tend to argue more. And the individual with hearing loss will often feel like a burden causing them to isolate themselves.
While others are talking and enjoying each other’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 breathe new life into your relationships with a significant other, brothers and sisters, kids, and friends.
Restore your ability to speak with each other. Engage in long conversations. Go back to doing the things you enjoy and spending time with people you love.
If you miss this in your life, it’s time to reassess that hearing aid.
Feeling safer in your home
Do you feel anxious about what you can’t hear? Would you hear the voice of a hurt loved one yelling to you from the other room? Would you be able to hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector? Would you miss the phone ringing when an important call was coming in?
Do you worry that you won’t hear oncoming traffic or pedestrian signals when out for a walk?
When we are in places where we should feel quite safe, hearing loss can cause us to feel quite anxious. But you put yourself at ease and more thoroughly enjoy life when you use hearing aids. You’ll find peace of mind.
It’s likely you don’t know how much you’re missing
You may not even know what you’re missing, just like the babies who hear their mother’s voice for the first time. In most situations, hearing loss is a gradual progressive process. It’s possible that you’ve forgotten what hearing well is like.
When you can suddenly hear again, you’ll be surprised. You’ll wish you dealt with it sooner. Think your hearing loss isn’t that advanced? Find out exactly what you’ve been missing by giving us a call for a hearing exam.
