Last Friday I came down with the flu and spent all weekend in bed. Monday I went to the doctor and was given the usual to battle the flu. I lost my voice Sunday and I can't talk on the phone or even hold a conversation in person. I feel muted and inferior for some reason. It sucks. I'm not sure why all these feelings are getting kicked up. I can't go to T tomorrow and had to cancel that. Guess all I can do is post and chat for now. I'm just happy that it isn't permanent. Ugggghhhh!

Andy,

Do you feel like this is imposed silence of a sort? Or it reminds you of that? The oddest things can make a survivor feel out of control - things others would have trouble understanding why the impact would even exist.

Remember that your silence ended long ago and you have been speaking up for yourself. This is just a temporary thing - just like you said.

Oh, the DRAMA!

Flu is temporary. Loss of voice is temporary. Has nothing to do with your self worth.

But it indicates you might be a little sick. smile

Thanks guys, I didn't mean to be mr. drama.

I do have a weird thing that happened to me tonight. I got my voice back. The weird part is that it's deeper than it was before. My question is why now at 29? I've always had a high voice before but that is different now. The doc put me on mucinex and that must be part of it. I called my coworker that always tells me one day it will drop. He and I just laughed as I talked. I was cherry red the whole time. I think I'm gonna be red faced for a while now explaining this to others.

My voice changes when I get sick. Gets lower. Barry White low sometimes.

I'm the same way, partly. When I'm about to lose my voice to a cold, it goes contrabass the first day, then becomes a squeak the next. Real terrible thing to happen when one enjoys singing.

I recorded myself singing low bass back in 2000 before losing my voice to laryngitis. Interesting outcome.

Andy I hope your bout with a flu is swift. Nothing sucks like being sick.
