Holy fuck. I couldnt speak a single word in last two days. I literally dont have a voice anymore.

The most annoying thing about it is that I only have very mild fatigue, no fever at all. I feel almost completely fine except having trouble communicating with people and stupid sore throat.

This is the most annoying illness ever.

Also I feel bad for mute people.

edit: Also RIP my 30 octave vocal range

I don't think I have laryngitis, but thanks to my being sick, my throat got pretty beat up by all the vomiting. Worst part is, that's been 5 days ago now, and I'm still hoarse.

I think I picked some other illness along the way, though, and I have some sinus drainage.

Going back about 9/10 years, I had shingles. Because it popped up in just the wrong nerves, half my vocal chords were (temporarily) paralysed and I couldn't speak above a whisper for about 3 months.

Whoa, that's rough. I bet that's pretty worrisome, too, wondering if it'll ever end.

Luckily I'm not experiencing anything as severe, but it's still a pain in the ass.

Laryngitis sucks, hope you get your voice back soon! I used to get it a lot when I smoked. I agree it's super annoying

thanks! Im slowly getting my voice back. Started to antibiotics today. Also using all that sprays and stuff. Tried some water-steam breathing and it kinda helped.

Yep, stuff is going around. I caught that respiratory flu in Feb. with fits of coughing that wiped out my voice for weeks. It is still not completely recovered so I contacted a vocal coach here in LA and he suggested some exercises to restore range and control in my singing voice. I definitely did some damage but things are coming back now. I have a gig next week with a lot of vocal harmonies so hopefully we will be good to go.

I got slammed a few days ago, still getting over it. It's a flu type thing, possibly bronchitis. Everybody is getting it out here.

Man, what a pain in the neck.

Post a video of you trying to sing through the pain, post another video (if you have any) of you singing pre-illness. You could put Sia over it and say you're trying to raise awareness, get a few quid
