YouTube has some videos you really should look at. A 7-month old baby hears his mother’s voice for the first time after being fitted for a hearing aid. His smile is enough to bring tears to your eyes.
You can find lots of videos similar to this online. You feel like you’re part of that special moment that the child is having with their doctors and parents.
The baby doesn’t always take to the idea of getting hearing aids put in initially. When the doctor attempts to put the hearing aids in the baby’s ears, they initially resist. They might cry before they smile with joy. They are overwhelmed by a wide range of emotions. They don’t know what to expect. But then, with renewed hearing, the world opens up for them.
They beam with happiness, but that life-changing event can happen to anybody.
Does the idea of wearing hearing aids make you anxious? You’re not by yourself. You don’t need to be a child to be a little wary of this new experience.
People of all ages can have the joy and happiness that hearing aids bring.
Music to Your Ears
You might not have even recognized the problem. It developed so slowly. You don’t listen to music nowadays. It seems like it used to be a lot more satisfying. It was even grating in some cases. It got even worse when you cranked up the volume.
Hearing impairment doesn’t just impact the volume you can hear. It effects how you hear different frequencies and notes.
Music is, as every musician knows, a beautiful blend of sound frequencies that meld together to produce the sound that we hear as…., well, music. If you can’t hear the spectacular complexity of music, it’s just not the same.
But put on your hearing aid. Now, those notes which were once muted can be vibrantly heard. The beauty of music is back in your life. It becomes a wonderful pleasure in your life that you’d lost.
A Child’s Laughter
Do you recall the sound of a child’s laughter? If you’ve been unwilling to wear your hearing aid, you might have forgotten how amazing this experience can be.
Restore your hearing with hearing aids and rediscover those magic moments with your grandchildren.
Where Did All The Birds go?
Have you forgotten that dozens of birds live in your backyard? There are hundreds if you go to the park. While some of their chirps are more pleasant than others, it’s something you might not appreciate until they’re gone.
Except there not gone. These joyful sounds of nature once greatly enhanced your life, but now you can’t hear them because of your hearing impairment.
When you use your hearing aids, you once again delight in the merriment of our feathered friends.
Neglected hearing impairment can put substantial strain on relationships. It can cause a tremendous amount of frustration. There’s misunderstanding causing more disagreements. Frequently, in order to not feel like a burden, people with hearing loss will go into seclusion.
They may steer clear of social clubs or going out to dinner because they feel 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 conversations. Return to spending time with the ones you love and partaking in activities you love.
If you’re missing this in your life, it’s time to reconsider that hearing aid.
Feeling Safer in Your House
Does what you can’t hear make you feel stressed? Would you hear the voice of an injured family member yelling to you from another room? Could you hear the doorbell, timer on the oven, or smoke alarm? Perhaps you would miss a crucial 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 certain that you can hear these essential signals?
These “what ifs” can make us feel insecure in places where we should feel completely comfortable.
But you can feel more comfortable and enjoy life more when you wear your hearing aids. You’ll be more at peace.
You Probably Don’t Even Know How Much You’re Missing
Hearing loss advances gradually in most instances. It’s possible that you don’t even remember how much you enjoyed things before your hearing started to decline.
You’ll be surprised when you suddenly hear them again. You’ll regret letting it go this long. If you don’t think your hearing loss is that bad, it’s time to get it checked. Call us to schedule a hearing test.
