Have you seen the videos on YouTube? After being fitted with hearing aids, a 7-month-old baby hears his mother’s voice for the first time. You may find yourself crying tears of joy when you see the smile on his face.
Videos similar to this one are countless online. You feel like you’re part of that special event that the child is having with their parents and doctors.
In some videos, the baby is hesitant at first. They fight when the doctor attempts to fit the device on their ear. Sometimes, before they smile with joy, they cry. A range of emotions overtakes them. They’re not certain what’s going on. But then, with renewed hearing, the world opens up for them.
They glow with happiness, but that life-changing event can happen to anybody.
Does the idea of using hearing aids make you anxious? You’re not alone. You don’t need to be a child to be a bit cautious about this new experience.
Individuals of all ages can have the happiness and joy that hearing aids bring.
Music to Your Ears
You may not have even recognized the problem. It was a very gradual development. You don’t listen to music nowadays. It seems like it used to be a lot more enjoyable. It was even grating in some cases. Turning the volume up made it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t just effect the volume you can hear. It impacts how you hear different pitches and notes.
Every musician is aware that the notes flow together to make a unified sound that resonates as waves go into your ears. If you can’t hear the magnificent complexity of music, it’s just not the same.
But wait, now you put your new hearing aid in. Now, those notes which were once silent can be vibrantly heard. The beauty of music is back in your life. It becomes a fantastic pleasure in your life that you’d lost.
A Child’s Laughter
Is the sound of a child’s laughter something you can remember? If you’ve been reluctant to wear your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be.
Rediscover these wonderful moments with your grandchildren by restoring your hearing.
Where Did All The Birds go?
Have you forgotten that lots of birds live in your backyard? If you go to the park there will be hundreds. While some of their chirps are more pleasing than others, it’s something you may not appreciate until they’ve gone.
But the birds aren’t gone. These joyful sounds of nature once tremendously enhanced your life, but now you can’t hear them because of your hearing loss.
But when you put in your hearing aids those wonderful sounds of nature return to enhance your life once again.
Relationships can be significantly strained by neglected hearing loss. People get frustrated. They do not understand. They often argue more. It can even cause someone with hearing loss to seclude themselves, so they don’t feel as if they are a burden.
They may avoid social clubs or dinner out because they feel all alone and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Have you given up hobbies because they’re not as satisfying?
Your relationship with family and friends will be renewed by the simple act of wearing hearing aids.
Learn to talk to each other again. Talk for hours. Return to spending time with the ones you love and partaking in activities you enjoy.
It’s time to consider hearing aids especially if you miss these things.
Assurance That You’re Safe in Your House
Do you feel nervous about what you can’t hear? Would you hear the voice of an injured family member calling you from the other room? Would you hear the doorbell, timer on the oven, or smoke detector? Maybe you would miss an essential phone call because you couldn’t hear it ring.
What about oncoming traffic when you stroll through the neighborhood, or a bicycle bell, or a pedestrian signal? Are you confident that you can hear these important signals?
There are places where we should feel completely safe but because of these “what ifs” we don’t.
But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more relaxed, and enjoy life to its fullest extent. You’ll be more at peace.
You Most Likely Don’t Even Know How Much You’re Missing
Hearing loss advances slowly in most cases. It’s possible that you don’t even recall how much you took pleasure in things before your hearing began to decline.
You’ll be surprised when you suddenly hear them again. You’ll regret neglecting it this long. If you don’t think your hearing loss is that severe, it’s time to get it checked. Schedule a hearing exam and find out what you’ve been missing.
