Apparently I have laryngitis (self-diagnosed of course). I had a cold earlier this week, but now I feel just fine other than as of yesterday afternoon I can't talk. If I do manage to croak something out I sound like a pubescent boy x10; voice cracking all over the place. I was whispering, but then I read on the Internet whispering is harder on your vocal chords than normal speech. The office manager keeps talking to me and I feel rude just sitting here even though she knows the score. Sometimes I nod even if she's not looking. So I feel that in order to communicate with anyone I need to come here to the Lounge to post a thread.
