I've had laryngitis for the past two and a half days. I have to sing a solo for a baby dedication on Sunday. To "save" my voice, I've been whispering for two days straight and then tonight I read on all these med websites that whispering can actually put more of a strain on your vocal chords! Am I the only one who didn't know this? Because dumb me has probably prolonged being hoarse!! Guess I'll be talking in my squeaky low voice from now on out!!
