YouTube has some videos you really should check out. A 7-month old baby hears his mother’s voice for the first time after being having hearing aids fitted. You may find yourself crying tears of joy when you see his smile.
Videos like this one are countless online. You feel like you’re part of that special moment that the child is sharing with their parents and doctors.
The baby doesn’t always take to the idea of having hearing aids put in at first. They fight when the doctor tries to place the device on their ear. Sometimes, before they smile with delight, they cry. A wide range of emotions overtakes them. They’re not certain what’s going on. But ultimately, with revived hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them.
This happiness that they’re feeling can be a reality for anyone.
Are you feeling anxious about using a hearing aid? Many people feel this way too. People of every age can be a little nervous about this.
People of all ages can have the happiness and joy that hearing aids bring.
The Sound of Music
You may not have even noticed. It was a very gradual development. You don’t listen to music nowadays. It just didn’t seem as pleasant anymore. In some cases, it was even grating. It got even worse when you turned up the volume.
The volume you hear isn’t the only thing that is impacted by hearing loss. It effects how you hear different frequencies and notes.
Every musician is aware that the notes flow together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves go into your ears. It’s just not the same if you can’t hear the sublime complexity of the music.
But put your hearing aid on. Now, those tones which were once silent can be vibrantly heard. The power of music is back in your life. You had lost that pleasure in your life, but now you have it again.
A Child’s Laughter
Do you recall what a child’s laughter sounds like? If you’ve been reluctant to use your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how amazing this experience can be.
Reestablish your hearing with hearing aids and rediscover those wonderful moments with your grandchildren.
The Beautiful Sounds of Nature
Remember all those birds in your yard? If you go for a walk in the park there will be hundreds. You never recognized how much you enjoyed their chirps until they were gone.
But the birds are still there. You just don’t hear these joyful melodies that so enhance your life.
When you wear your hearing aids, you once again delight in the merriment of our feathered friends.
Relationships can be substantially stressed by neglected hearing loss. People get frustrated. They misunderstand. They tend to argue more. Frequently, in order to not feel like a burden, people with hearing loss will go into isolation.
They may steer clear of social clubs or going out to dinner because they feel all alone and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Have you given up hobbies because they aren’t as satisfying?
Your relationship with family and friends will be renewed by the simple act of wearing hearing aids.
Get accustomed to talking to each other again. Talk for hours. Return to spending time with your loved ones and partaking in activities you enjoy.
It’s time to think about hearing aids especially if you miss these things.
Assurance That You’re Safe in Your Home
Does what you can’t hear make you feel stressed? If a family member was injured and yelling for help in another room, would you be able to hear them? Could you hear the doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t hear it ring?
What about oncoming traffic when you stroll through the neighborhood, or a bicycle bell, or a pedestrian signal? Are you sure that you can hear these important signals?
There are places where we should feel perfectly safe but because of these “what ifs” we don’t.
But you can feel more at ease and enjoy life more when you wear your hearing aids. You’ll be more at peace.
You Probably Don’t Even Recognize How Much You’re Missing
Hearing loss progresses gradually in most cases. It’s possible that you don’t even remember how much you took pleasure in things before your hearing started to decline.
You’ll be amazed when you suddenly hear them again. You’ll wish you took care of it sooner. Think your hearing loss isn’t that severe? Get it looked at. Call us to schedule a hearing test.
