My husband and I just got back from church and I have to say - it was a good voice day. So much of my life has been spent singing - either in church or out - that when I had no voice due to SD it really bummed me out that I couldn't sing. I would go to church and silently listen to the congregation sing and be sad that I couldn't join in. Reading the words silently as others sing is just not the same!
I know that a lot of people with SD say that they are still able to sing even when they have no voice. I, on the other hand, was unable to do anything. I couldn't talk, sing, yell, or hum. I was basically totally silent. What a change for someone who always wandered around the house humming or singing (and driving my husband crazy!).
Now that I have recovered my voice to the point it is (which is pretty darn good compared to where I was at) I amnow able to hum and sing again. It was great to be in church and finally be able to sing along to the hymns. Of course, I have to sing pretty quietly and not all the notes come out but, I am still singing!
Take that ABSD! I am singing despite you! And you thought you would rule my life forever! Hah!
In the words of one of the hymns we sang this morning . . .
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory, great things He has done.
Have a wonderful day!
