Anyone who knows me knows how stir crazy I go staying home for long periods of time. Give me an order to stay in bed to recuperate, and I will fight you to regain my independence, even at the cost of my health. I just can’t do “take it easy”.
So, this last week has been quite trying. We went hard and played hard all of spring break, and then just as the day was ending last Friday, it was clear I was losing my voice. Losing my voice is not really a new thing, I’ve been known to lose my voice pretty frequently, but this was different in that I had no other symptoms.
As we were leaving the zoo Friday, my voice had all but disappeared. The next day at the tulip fields, I was reduced to fake sign language to communicate with my family or making them lean in while I whispered. But, I also noticed that I was dizzy and disoriented as well as having problems hearing and talking, so communicating was pretty miserable overall.
