Have you ever lost your voice? Literally can't talk. I got sick, and currently I can't talk. > - < In ceramic class, I have been carving what I wanted to say on one of my vase. haha...haha...my classmates said that I should keep it, even though I trimmed through the bottom. Anyways this guy at the farmers market thought I was mute. I been writing on notebook to communicate.

Sorry to hear that.

Yes, I lost my voice this past winter when I had a terrible cold and a throat infection. There is a really good home remedy involving heating up about 3 oz of whiskey and adding a bunch of honey and lemon juice to it (to drink at bedtime), but if you're not old enough to drink booze, then instead pick up some Throat Coat tea at the grocery store or the drug store (it has slippery elm in it, which is soothing).

IT IS A PAIN IN THE ASS!! You get a throat infection or something and it freakin hurts to talk and everyone keeps asking you stuff and you're constantly having to explain things, you tell them your throat hurts and it hurts like hell to talk, basically trying to mime to them to leave you alone, but they keep on asking you stuff that is impossible to describe without a voice.... auuugh I hate it.

I got a nasty infection very conveniently right after a vacation in March. (Seriously, I got off the plane and I was SIIIICK.) Took a day off work to heal. Next day, still felt like crap, called to take another day off and the boss bitched at me. So fine, day three I go in still feeling like crap and no voice and purposely cough all over everything (not really but I sure wanted to). How do ya like me now ya douche! People wouldn't leave me alone, I can't speak, let alone yell across the shop floor (I'm a car mechanic). People (being nice) would ask me about my vacation and I couldn't tell them anything.

There is a fun period when you're getting your voice back when it gets very deep. Like Barry White or that Homeless Radio Guy that popped up a while ago. Singing along with "can't get enough" was good.

Sore throat remedy: very salty warm water. Seriously. Like every time you pass by the sink, grab a glass, fill it with warm water, dump a good amount of salt in it (like a tablespoon at least). And gargle with it. Don't drink it. Gargle. Multiple times until you are done the glass of salt water. I sing songs while gargling. Its a chore but it works.

It's only happened to me when I was at sporting events or WWE events. Now I no longer yell that much, and even learned to control it too.

I just don't wanna get sick again, knowing in my case it'll lead to a bout of Bronchitis.

Yep, but not entirely. Back then I had to call a friend and the only way to get to him was by shouting. ROFL!

If you get sick and keep talking like a parrot then you'll definitely go mute for a few days.

Never came close to it. I've always been monotone and soft-spoken so I've never really strained myself.

I lost my voice a few days ago. I felt like Katy perry for two weeks.

That never happened to me.
