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. His smile is enough to bring tears to your eyes.
Videos similar to this one are countless online. You feel like you’re part of that special moment that the child is sharing with their parents and doctors.
In some videos, the baby is hesitant at first. They struggle when the doctor attempts to fit the device on their ear. Sometimes, before they smile with delight, they cry. A wide range of emotions overwhelms them. They’re not certain what’s happening. But then, with renewed hearing, the world opens up for them.
This happiness that their feeling can be a reality for anyone.
Are you feeling apprehensive about using a hearing aid? You’re not alone. People of all ages can be a bit anxious about this.
Let’s investigate how individuals of all ages may cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.
Music to Your Ears
You might not even know. It developed so gradually. You don’t listen to music anymore. It just didn’t seem as pleasant anymore. At times, it was even grating. Turning it up made it even worse.
Hearing loss doesn’t just effect the volume you can hear. Some pitches 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 just isn’t the same.
But wait, now you put your new hearing aid in. Now, those tones which were once muted can be vibrantly heard. Music again comes alive. It becomes a fantastic pleasure in your life that you’d lost.
A Child’s Laughter
Do you recall the sound of a child’s laughter? Perhaps your hearing loss has caused you to forget this wonderful experience.

The Beautiful Sounds of Nature
Have you forgotten that dozens of birds live in your yard? If you go for a walk in the park there will be hundreds. You never realized how much you enjoyed their chirps until they were gone.
But the birds aren’t gone. You just don’t hear these beautiful melodies that so enhance your life.
But when you use your hearing aids those beautiful sounds of nature come back to enhance your life once more.
Neglected hearing loss can put significant stress on relationships. People get frustrated. They do not understand. They often argue more. It can even cause someone with hearing loss to isolate themselves, so they don’t feel as if they are 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 friends and family will be renewed by the basic act of using hearing aids.
Get accustomed to talking to each other again. Talk for hours. Get back to doing the things you enjoy and being with people you love.
It’s time to consider hearing aids especially if you miss these things.
Confidence That You’re Safe in Your House
Does what you can’t hear make you feel stressed? If a loved one was hurt and yelling for help in another room, would you hear them? A doorbell, oven timer, or smoke alarm…could you hear them? Maybe you would miss an essential phone call because you didn’t hear it ring.
When you stroll through the neighborhood, are you sure that you will hear oncoming traffic, pedestrian signals, or a bicycle bell?
These “what ifs” can make us feel vulnerable in places where we should be completely comfortable.
But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more at ease, and enjoy life to its fullest. You’ll be more at peace.
You Most Likely Don’t Even Know How Much You’re Missing
In most instances, 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 dealt with 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.
