    I have a cold, the usual symptoms of runny nose, cough, etc. - and I lost my voice. I only worked a 1/2 day on Friday. I figured my voice would come back with me just resting it. I've whispered when necessary but I've tried to just be quiet and say nothing. I'm sucking on cough drops and drinking lots of water.

    I'm in Sales. I spend all day on the phone. My voice earns me money.

    What if my voice is still gone when I wake up Monday morning?!?!

    This is the second cold I've had this year.

    This year, what with me & my healthy lifestyle.

    Whispering is harder on your vocal chords than just talking. FYI. :coffee:

    I have 181 accounts I am responsible for. They are all "established" and I talk to at least 30-40 per day.

    I just read this online somewhere else. Luckily, I haven't whispered too much. I've been alone most of the day - and yesterday as well. Except for Elvis. I did whisper to him a little.

    I'm sure it was fun for HC the first day of quiet but now I bet he misses my stimulating conversations & melodic tone.

    If you're still bad on Monday, send a mass email to all of them letting them know if they need anything they should contact you via email.

    Thanks, sweetheart. :wub:

    I just don't want to use my sick time for this - I'd rather use it when I really need it. You know?
