Have you seen it?Yep I’ve got laryngitis. It started on Sunday afternoon, when I became a little hoarse… and when I woke up on Monday morning my voice was all but gone. By Monday afternoon it had completely departed. Nothing. Not even a squeak.
Dr Google tells me its probably viral and should only last a few days. Seems there’s not much to do to help it. Drink lots, and rest (I’m a mother. When do I get a chance to rest?). And then there were these helpful tips…
- Don’t talk. Talking can make matters worse.
- Try not to laugh.
- And avoid whispering, it’ll strain your vocal cords.
Thanks for that.
The children think its hilarious, they are whispering a lot (cute) and ignoring me even more – I CANT HEAR YOU MUMMY (not so cute).
It’s actually pretty tiring trying to get people to understand you, and straining to make any noise at all (which helpfully you’re not supposed to do). It’s not like I can just not say (or attempt to say) anything when I meet someone who I know…
And I felt particularly rude out shopping yesterday. I tried to compensate by smiling and nodding a lot. Like an idiot. Needless to say Im not going to work.
Yesterday was my friend Corinne’s birthday, and I made her a penguin. (Happy Birthday Corinne!!) Actually I’m supposed to be helping her make her own penguin, but our plans have been curtailed a bit…
The pattern is free, you can find it at happie scrappie. Don’t you just love the bunny hat?? I do. I’m not sure if the penguin does though, she’s not saying much. She might have laryngitis too? Ahem.
