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. 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 can share that special moment with the child, the parents, and their physicians.
In some videos, the baby is reluctant at first. They struggle when the doctor attempts to fit the device on their ear. They might cry before they smile with delight. They are overtaken by a wide range of emotions. They’re not sure what’s happening. But in the end, with revived hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them.
They glow with joy, but that life-changing moment can happen to anyone.
Does the idea of wearing hearing aids make you anxious? Many people feel like this too. People of every age can be a little anxious about this.
Let’s explore how individuals of all ages may cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.
The Sound of Music
You may not even know. It happened so slowly. You quit listening to music. It seems like it used to be so much more enjoyable. It was even grating in some cases. It got even worse when you cranked up the volume.
Hearing loss doesn’t just impact the volume you can hear. Some frequencies of sound are lost while others are not effected.
Music is, as every musician recognizes, a beautiful blend of sound frequencies that blend together to create the sound that we hear as…., well, music. If you can’t hear the magnificent complexity of music, it just isn’t the same.
But put your hearing aid on. Now, those tones 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.
The Laughter of a Child
Is the sound of a child’s laughter something you can recall? Maybe your hearing loss has caused you to forget this amazing experience.
Restore your hearing with hearing aids and rediscover those wonderful moments with your grandchildren.
Where Did All The Birds go?
Remember all those birds out in your yard? 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.
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.
Untreated hearing impairment can put significant strain on relationships. People get frustrated. They do not understand. They often argue more. It can even cause a person with hearing loss to seclude themselves, so they don’t feel as if they are a burden.
They often feel all alone and disconnected from other’s conversations causing them to refrain from going out to dinner or other social events.
Have you quit hobbies because they aren’t as enjoyable?
Your relationship with family and friends will be revitalized by the basic act of wearing hearing aids.
Learn to talk to each other again. Have long talks. Go back to spending time with the ones you love and engaging in activities you love.
It’s time to consider hearing aids particularly if you miss these things.
Confidence That You’re Safe in Your Home
Do you feel nervous about what you can’t hear? If a loved one was injured and calling for help in another room, would you hear them? A doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm…would you be able to hear them? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even hear it ring?
When you stroll around the neighborhood, are you certain that you’ll hear oncoming traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
These “what ifs” can make us feel unsafe in places where we should feel absolutely comfortable.
But you can feel more comfortable and enjoy life more when you wear your hearing aids. You’ll be more at peace.
You May Not Realize What You’re Missing
Hearing loss advances slowly in most instances. You might have simply forgotten the pleasure of things you no longer hear.
When you suddenly hear them again, you’ll be amazed. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. If you don’t believe your hearing loss is that severe, it’s time to get it checked. Schedule a hearing test and discover what you’ve been missing.
