Bad news, I’ve gotten quite sick in the past 2 days. My throat feels like I swallowed acid, it’s extremely painful and if I speak more than a few words it triggers a terrible coughing fit, so I’ve been reduced to lounging on the couch, binging on Netflix, sleeping more than any human should, and shaking my head and doing hand gestures to avoid talking whenever possible. I haven’t been sick like this in a while, though I do have a history of being quite susceptible to pharyngitis and laryngitis that dates all the way back to middle school. So it’s not my first rodeo when it comes to this sort of thing…
It usually takes about 2-3 weeks to recover to the point that my voice is strong enough to start recording long passages of text and other more “strenuous” vocalisations. But I’m hoping to beat the odds and be able to squeeze in some things before then. But for now, I can probably guarantee I won’t be speaking at all for the next 4-5 days because it hurts like a mofo! And unfortunately these aren’t the sort of things that antibiotics can help with, as it’s viral… so not much a doctor can do for me.
Trying to force myself to get extra rest, sleeping whenever I feel like I can. But I’m a very whiny patient! I tend to go full-on “little girl” when I’m sick. Luckily, Daddy is a saint and takes such good care of me!
Please be patient, I’m going stir crazy here so as soon as I can, I promise I’ll be behind the mic creating something naughty for you all!
