Experience Life…With Hearing Aids
Posted by Atlantic Hearing Centers on March 21, 2014
Do you remember how fun it once was going to dinner with a group of friends or family? The laughter and the conversation were both enriching and exciting. How about the suspenseful feeling you received while sitting on the edge of your seat in a crowded movie theater, clinging to every word of the main character’s beautifully delivered monologue? Think back to the sounds of a sunny spring morning walk, listening to the sweet sounds of birds chirping in the sky, the wind blowing through the trees and the neighborhood kids playing outside.
These may be some of the sounds you no longer recognize, or experiences you no longer enjoy. Quite often a person who is suffering from hearing loss struggles to enjoy the situations they once did. This struggle can become frustrating and over time lead to a lack of participation in once loved events.
The average person suffers with hearing loss for roughly seven years before seeking help, but for many, the wait can be much longer. One of the reasons for the delay is hearing loss is typically a gradual process. Most people don’t experience a sudden event that leads to their hearing loss; instead, it occurs over time. Due to the gradual onset of hearing loss, many people don’t recognize the sounds they are missing. The lack of recognition may lead to decreased enjoyment in the activities they once loved.
Individuals who do recognize their hearing loss and begin wearing hearing aids report rediscovering sounds they didn’t realize they had lost. They also find it much easier to enjoy situations they used to love but had stopped participating in due to their hearing difficulties. Their hearing aids open these opportunities back up to them and they are able to experience life again!
