Not a sound could be heard...


Spring has sprung, and for the first time EVER I have allergies to something...and the crazy thing is that I live in Fla where things bloom all year round. Lately all I do is walk around sneezing up a storm and sniffling, with puffy looking eyes....then yesterday happens....I lost my voice!!!

Now for all of those who know me, this is quite devastating, I would open my mouth and nothing....I'd put all I could muster to say something, and only this little mousy sound would come out (and let me tell you, nothing mousy sounding normally about my voice)....so since I couldn't talk (which Ray found to be quite humorous, nothing funny about it honey!!) and I felt just plain awful, I took some allergy medicine (non-drowsy kind which is so the opposite for me) and slept and slept and slept...

I woke up last nite at 10:00 pm and was soooo confused, it felt soooo much later....

And it was back, sorta, it would come and go...so while my voice was still around I called my mom (hadn't spoken to her all day), and called my brother back.


Ray tells me I kept clearing my throat while I was sleeping during the night and coughing some, so maybe just maybe I coughed that frog back up and the voice came back...

All I can say is my throat is slightly sore today, but my voice is back hopefully to stay this time!!!

Yuck. I never actually lost my voice (although M. probably wishes I did once in a while, haha). I hope you are feeling better quickly!

I think my husband would love for me to lose my voice, but it's never happened. Our 2 year old has allergies, it's been awful this past week.

Hope it's back to stay! That bites when it is so much harder to make a point ;0)

Yup sounds exactly what I get every spring and again in the fall I have 3 containers of Nazonex on go. One on my desk, one in my purse and one on my dresser. I thought when this first started to happen that it was a sinus cold, but later learned that it was allergies. I've only developed them in the last 3 years.
Hope you get it under controle I feel for you...
