My apologies for being absent for so long! I have been battling a particularly bad bug for over a week now and, while the severe head and chest problems are easing a wee bit due to antibiotics, I am still wrestling with a very bad cough and little or no voice! Not great for one whose primary tool of the trade is her speaking voice!
The other day I went back to the doctor’s and she told me that I must not talk for a few days – she clearly does not know me! If I must communicate, even with family at home, I should text them. My husband does not text – lucky guy! It has been a very quiet weekend!
Hopefully I will be feeling better soon and will have my voice back. But as I get older, I notice that my voice has become hoarser. So, I decided to do some research on Boomers and Voice Issues. Clearly, these are not uncommon challenges for people in mid-life. Check out this article I found from a Baby Boomer Retirement blog. It has some interesting insights and helpful pointers!
