Losing one's voice is never fun

Do you know how much fun it is to lose your voice? I personally don't find it very amusing.

However, it's double sucky when you work at a job where you have to talk to/interview people all day long, and the first thing the client says to you when you get on the phone for an interview appointment is, "You must have a cold," it's even less amusing.

Today I was trying to think of all my tasks at work that don't involve talking, and I did a pretty good job. However, right now's the time I need to be calling clients like crazy and setting up interview appointments! I guess I'm just going to have to deal with it because what other choice do I have? I wish I could say I sound much worse than I actually feel, but that's not quite accurate. I was okay this morning, but by this afternoon, I felt pretty lousy.

Last week was a stressful week for me, and I didn't take care of myself as well as I should have. Now I'm suffering the consequences of my stupidity. Unfortunately everyone I have to talk to is also suffering since they have to hear my sick cow-sounding voice! I couldn't even have an IM convo, which doesn't involve any talking, with the Fashionista today because her computer was broken. Sad day!

Here's to hoping my voice makes its reappearance soon!

Good luck with that! That is very annoying and sometimes you just have to put up with it :(
