YouTube has some videos you really should look at. After getting fitted with hearing aids, a 7-month-old baby hears his mother’s voice for the first time. The smile on his face is enough to bring you tears of joy.
You can find lots of videos similar to this online. You feel like you’re part of that special event that the child is having with their parents and doctors.
The baby doesn’t always take to the idea of having hearing aids put in initially. They fight when the doctor attempts to place the device on their ear. Occasionally, before they smile with delight, they cry. They are overtaken by a range of emotions. They don’t know what to expect. But in the end, with restored hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them.
This happiness that they’re feeling can be a reality for anybody.
Does the idea of wearing hearing aids make you apprehensive? You’re not by yourself. People of every age can be a bit nervous about this.
Let’s investigate how people of any age might cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.
Music to Your Ears
You might not even know. It developed so slowly. You don’t listen to music nowadays. It seems like it used to be so much more satisfying. It was even grating at times. Turning it up made it even worse.
The volume you hear is not the only thing that is impacted by hearing loss. Some frequencies of sound are lost while others are not impacted.
Music is, as every musician recognizes, a wonderful blend of sound frequencies that blend together to create the sound that we hear as…., well, music. If you can’t hear the spectacular complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
But wait, now you put your new hearing aid in. Suddenly you can hear those once silent tones. Music once again comes alive. It becomes a great pleasure in your life that you’d lost.
The Laughter of a Child
Do you recall the sound of a child’s laughter? Maybe your hearing loss has caused you to forget this wonderful experience.
Rediscover these wonderful moments with your grandchildren by recovering your hearing.
Where Did All The Birds go?
Have you forgotten that dozens of birds live in your backyard? There are hundreds if you walk in the park. You never knew how much you liked their chirps until they were gone.
But the birds aren’t gone. You just can’t hear these beautiful melodies that so enhance your life.
When you wear your hearing aids, you once again delight in the merriment of our feathered friends.
Neglected hearing loss can put substantial strain on relationships. It can cause a tremendous amount of frustration. There’s misunderstanding resulting in more disagreements. It can even cause somebody with hearing loss to isolate themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
They may steer clear of social clubs or dinner out because they feel all alone and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Are hobbies you once loved less enjoyable now so you’ve given them up?
The simple act of having your hearing back will breathe new life into your relationships with people you love, siblings, children, and friends.
Learn to talk to each other again. Have long talks. Get back to doing the things you love and being with people you love.
It’s time to think about hearing aids especially if you miss these things.
Confidence That You’re Safe in Your Home
Do you feel anxious about what you can’t hear? Could you hear the voice of an injured loved one yelling to you from another room? A doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector…could you hear them? Would you miss an important call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
When you stroll around the neighborhood, are you sure that you will hear oncoming traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
There are places where we should feel perfectly safe but because of these “what ifs” we don’t.
But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more at ease, and enjoy life to its utmost. You’ll be more at peace.
You Might Not Realize What You’re Missing
In most instances, hearing loss develops slowly. It’s possible that you don’t even recall how much you enjoyed things before your hearing began to decline.
You’ll be surprised when you suddenly hear them again. You’ll regret neglecting it this long. Think your hearing loss isn’t that bad? Get it looked at. Call us to schedule a hearing exam.
