I lost my voice today. And I don’t think I’ve ever been more miserable. I never quite realised how much I enjoy talking until I lost the ability to do so. Worse, I had to do something I rarely do, which is to call in sick. So now some poor soul has to do my ED nights and I’m going to have to repay that person back. Most likely on a night that I would probably really want off but now can’t have off because this kind soul has covered for me. So it doubly sucks. I’m not contagious (I don’t think) but not only does it hurt to talk, but I sound like a squeaky toy when I do talk. I’m not sure, if I’m a patient that I would want me to be their doctor either.
