It's been 17 days since I had pneumonia. It's been 17 days since I had my voice. That's way too long. If you know me at all, you know I love to talk. So, being without a voice for 17 days is about to drive me nuts.
Typically, I sound fairly 'normal' in the mornings, but as the day goes on, I start to sound a little freakish. This morning, however, I didn't even have anything to start with. So, I went to extremes. I called in sick to work (again), and I have had a day of vocal rest. I didn't speak a word at all until Bryan came home from school. Even then, I only talked for a minute. This may be one of the longest days of my life. Seriously.
I need my voice. I talk all day long at work, on the phone and in person. Yesterday there were many pharmacists in Lexington that were frustrated with me because they couldn't hear the Rxs I was calling in to them. I had frustrated clients in my office that kept saying "what did you say?" over and over again. It was getting old. Hopefully a day of rest will help, and I will be on the mend tonight.
In the meantime, help me out here, and don't call me! It's too tempting not to answer!! If you do call, leave me a message, and I will email you back. I am trying to be a good patient, but it's not an easy job!
