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. The smile on his face is enough to bring you tears of joy.
You can find countless videos similar to this online. You feel like you’re part of that special event that the child is having with their doctors and parents.
The baby doesn’t always like the idea of getting hearing aids put in initially. They fight when the doctor attempts to fit the device on their ear. They may cry before they smile with joy. They are overtaken by a range of emotions. They don’t know what to expect. But in the end, with renewed hearing, the world immediately opens up for them.
They glow with joy, but that life-changing event can happen to anybody.
Does the idea of wearing hearing aids make you apprehensive? You’re not alone. You don’t need to be a child to be a bit wary of this new experience.
People of all ages can have the happiness and joy that hearing aids bring.
Music to Your Ears
You may not have even noticed. It was a very slow development. You stopped listening to music. It seems like it used to be so much more enjoyable. It was even grating at times. It got even worse when you cranked up the volume.
The volume you hear isn’t the only thing that is effected by hearing loss. Some wavelengths 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 produce the sound that we hear as…., well, music. If you can’t hear the magnificent complexity of music, it’s just not the same.
But put your hearing aid on. Now, those notes which were once muted can be vibrantly heard. The power of music is back in your life. It becomes a wonderful pleasure in your life that you’d lost.
The Laughter of a Child
Do you recall the sound of a child’s laughter? Perhaps 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.
The Beautiful Sounds of Nature
Have you forgotten that lots of birds live in your yard? There are hundreds if you walk in the park. You never realized how much you enjoyed their chirps until they were gone.
Except there not gone. You just don’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.
Neglected hearing loss can put enormous stress on relationships. It can cause a tremendous amount of frustration. There’s misunderstanding resulting in more arguments. Sometimes, so they don’t feel like a burden, people with hearing loss will go into seclusion.
They might steer clear of social clubs or going out to dinner because they feel all alone and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Are hobbies you once enjoyed less enjoyable now so you’ve given them up?
Your relationship with family and friends will be renewed by the simple act of wearing hearing aids.
Learn to talk to each other again. Have long conversations. Get back to doing the things you love and being with people you love.
It’s time to consider hearing aids especially if you miss these things.
Feeling Safer in Your House
Does what you can’t hear make you feel nervous? 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 detector? Maybe you would miss an important phone call because you couldn’t hear it ring.
When you stroll through the neighborhood, are you certain that you’ll hear oncoming traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
These “what ifs” can make us feel insecure in places where we should feel absolutely secure.
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 Recognize How Much You’re Missing
In the majority of cases, hearing loss develops slowly. You might have simply forgotten the joy of things you can’t hear anymore.
You’ll be surprised when you suddenly hear them again. You’ll wish you took care of it sooner. If you don’t believe your hearing loss is that bad, it’s time to get it looked at. Call us to schedule a hearing test.
