Hello Catana, thank you. Some years ago I would just be talking on the phone to my sisters or Mom. they picked up on it right away. I had it for at least a year before it got bad enough that my voice was so broken I had to try something.
My doc wanted me to go to MD ANDERSON in houston tx. for a shot botox in my voice box. I thought about it and decidede to not have it. Im so glad I didnt. I have talked with several patients in my ENT office and they were all upset because it didnt last very long. I just cant see using botox right away. I hate traveling and just the trip to houston is enough to cause a major panic, manic, fibro flare, neuropathy flare and who knows what else.
Actually, I am somewhat of a recluse. I have no friends and my family is all I speak to, and of course my husband. He doesnt mind my not being able to talk. i forgot, one time I got up one morning and tried to tell my dog and cat good morning. I had no voice at all. I could not speak a word, not a bit of sound. I didnt have any problem breathing. I emailed my sisters and mom and told them to just email for our daily visit. My husband thought it was funny.
I have had so much crapolla health problems in in recent years I didnt bother a doctor trip with this one, voice came back in 3 or 4 days.I would rather eat than talk so as long as I dont run out of my good soups and pasta and mashed potatos Im fine.
I am so off balance so much I dont do as much cooking as I love to do. I miss it. I just dont have the energy. I did take my dog on a walk yesterday and will do it later today. I tested my pool temp and it is warm enough for my first swim of season......I hope you are having a great weekend, and as pain free as possible......regards...Cathy
