YouTube has some videos you really should look at. After getting fitted with hearing aids, a 7-month-old baby hears his mother’s voice for the first time. You may find yourself crying tears of joy when you see his smile.
Videos like this one are numerous online. You feel like you’re part of that wonderful moment that the child is having with their parents and doctors.
The baby doesn’t always like the idea of having 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 delight. They are overwhelmed by a wide range of emotions. They don’t know what to expect. But ultimately, with revived hearing, the world suddenly opens up for them.
This joy that they’re feeling can be a reality for anyone.
Are you feeling anxious about using a hearing aid? Many people feel like this too. You don’t have 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.
The Sound of Music
You may not have even recognized the problem. It was a very gradual development. You quit listening to music. It just didn’t seem as pleasant anymore. It was even grating at times. It got even worse when you turned up the volume.
The volume you hear is not the only thing that is impacted by hearing loss. It effects how you hear different frequencies and notes.
Music is, as every musician knows, a wonderful blend of sound frequencies that meld together to produce the sound that we hear as…., well, music. it just isn’t the same if you can’t hear the sublime complexity of the music.
But wait, now you put in your new hearing aids. Now, those tones which were once muted can be vibrantly heard. The beauty of music is back in your life. It becomes a great pleasure in your life that you’d lost.
A Child’s Laughter
Is the sound of a child’s laughter something you can remember? If you’ve been reluctant to use your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how beautiful this experience can be.

Where Did All The Birds go?
Have you forgotten that lots of birds live in your backyard? There are hundreds if you walk in the park. While some of their chirps are more pleasing than others, it’s something you might not acknowledge until they’ve gone.
Except they haven’t gone. These joyful sounds of nature once greatly enhanced your life, but now you don’t hear them because of your hearing loss.
But when you put in your hearing aids those beautiful sounds of nature return to enhance your life once again.
Neglected hearing loss can put enormous stress on relationships. It can cause a tremendous amount of frustration. They misunderstand. They tend to argue more. Frequently, in order to not feel like a burden, people with hearing loss will go into isolation.
They might steer clear of social clubs or going out to dinner because they feel all alone and disconnected while others have a conversation.
Have you quit hobbies because they aren’t as satisfying?
The simple act of getting your hearing back will breathe new life into your relationships with loved ones, siblings, children, and friends.
Learn to speak with each other again. Have long talks. Return to spending time with the ones you love and taking part in activities you enjoy.
It’s time to think about hearing aids especially if you miss these things.
Assurance That You’re Safe in Your House
Do you feel anxious about what you can’t hear? Would you hear the voice of a hurt loved one yelling to you from the other room? A doorbell, oven timer, or smoke detector…would you be able to hear them? Would you miss an important phone call because you didn’t even 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?
There are places where we should feel perfectly safe but because of these “what ifs” we don’t.
But when you wear your hearing aid, you can be more relaxed, and enjoy life to its utmost. You’ll have peace of mind.
