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 similar to this one are numerous online. You feel like you’re part of that wonderful moment that the child is sharing with their doctors and parents.
The baby doesn’t always like the idea of getting hearing aids put in initially. When the doctor tries to put the hearing aids in the baby’s ears, they initially resist. Sometimes, before they smile with delight, they cry. They are overtaken by a wide range of emotions. They’re not certain what’s happening. But ultimately, with restored hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them.
They beam with joy, but that life-changing moment can happen to anybody.
Are you feeling apprehensive about using a hearing aid? Many people feel like this too. You don’t need to be a child to be a bit cautious about this new experience.
People of any age can have the happiness and joy that hearing aids bring.
The Sound of Music
You may not have even noticed. It happened so gradually. You stopped listening to music. It seems like it used to be a lot more enjoyable. In some cases, it was even grating. It got even worse when you turned up the volume.
Hearing impairment doesn’t just impact the volume you can hear. Some wavelengths 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’s just not the same.
But wait, now you put your new hearing aid in. Now, those tones which were once muted can be vibrantly heard. Music once again comes alive. You had lost that pleasure in your life, but now you have it back.
A Child’s Laughter
Is the sound of a child’s laughter something you can recall? Maybe your hearing loss has caused you to forget this wonderful experience.
Restore your hearing with hearing aids and rediscover those wonderful moments with your grandchildren.
The Beautiful Sounds of Nature
Remember all those birds out in your yard? There are hundreds if you go to the park. You never realized how much you liked their chirps until they were gone.
Except they haven’t gone. You just can’t hear these joyful melodies that so enhance your life.
But when you put in your hearing aids those beautiful sounds of nature return to enhance your life once again.
Neglected hearing impairment can put substantial stress on relationships. It can cause a tremendous amount of frustration. There’s misunderstanding resulting in more arguments. It can even cause a person with hearing loss to seclude themselves, so they don’t feel like a burden.
They frequently feel alone and disconnected from other’s discussions causing them to avoid going out to dinner or other social events.
Are hobbies you once enjoyed less fun now so you’ve given them up?
Your relationship with family and friends will be renewed by the basic act of using hearing aids.
Become accustomed to speaking with each other again. Talk for hours. Get back to doing the things you love and being with people you love.
It’s time to consider hearing aids particularly if you miss these things.
Feeling Safer in Your House
Do you feel stressed about what you can’t hear? Would you hear the voice of a hurt family member calling you from another room? A doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector…could you hear them? Perhaps you would miss an important phone call because you couldn’t hear it ring.
What about oncoming traffic when you walk through the neighborhood, or a bicycle bell, or a pedestrian signal? Are you certain 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 at ease, 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
In the majority of instances, hearing loss advances gradually. It’s possible that you don’t even remember how much you enjoyed things before your hearing began to decline.
When you suddenly hear them again, you’ll be astonished. You’ll regret letting it go this long. Think your hearing loss isn’t that bad? Get it checked out. Call us to schedule a hearing test.
