Sick with dulcimers:)
Mary Thanks for the advice, sounds like I have been doing a lot of stuff i shouldn't. Clearing my throat is a big thing, and has prob set me back. This morning I can talk pretty good but singing is out of the question. I try a little everynow and then and it scares me that it will never come back. I love to sing, I'm not that good at it but it is such a enjoyment to me. Just like loosing my eyesite would kill me because I love to draw. I can't think of loosing my voice. I'll try and stop the throat clearing and coughing, and I stop yelling so dad can hear me, that really strains my voice. I was wondering if there is anything I can gargle or spray in my throat that will help it to heal faster. If you know of anything PLEASE let me know. Thanks again Dana
I've had some kind of crud going on 3 weeks now that I can't kick, Have been to doctor got a shot and now on antibiotics. I was just getting to where I can sing a little while playing and was enjoying it. I have had no voice for almost 3 weeks and it is very frustrating, because I have been playing a little bit when I feel up to it, but I want to sing along and all I can do is squeek. Doctor says not to talk or strain my voice.LOL That is darn near impossible around here with a husband that can't hear and a dad that I have to scream at to get to hear me and says huh everytime i cough or clear my throat. But I do enjoy just sitting and playing a little something weather it is slow and soothing or I bang the heck out of a song to get rid of frustration.
Maybe I'm weird but I find it too hard to play anything when I'm sick. I think most of the time I get sick it's a cold or flu and it gives me that awful 'balloon head' feeling and I can't enjoy playing music becuase my head is too spaced out feeling.
Hope you feel better soon Mary!
