I cannot talk. I know, some people out there might say it is a good thing. :)
I tend to chat to myself a little, even if it is only a hmmm or an aha, or a few words. It is unconcious so when I can't talk, I am still trying to, which is putting even more strain on my vocal cords.
I need to get better though, in 2 weeks I'll be back in school, teaching singing no less.
Being completely quiet has made the thoughts in my brain spin out of control. Answering the phone is tough! I just ended up turning it off.
At least I don't feel unwell. My voice just doesn't work.
