My illness….

It’s been over 5 months now, and I still can’t speak like normal.  In February I came down with what I thought was Laryngitis.  I couldn’t talk normally or not at all… and I couldn’t raise my voice, yell, or even talk loudly.  I can’t yell, sing, or talk loudly to this day.  I’m thinking it may have started out as Laryngitis but changed to something much worse.  Since I got the problem in the middle of the High School soccer season, I think I may have done some real physical damage…. by trying to coach through it.  Anyone have thoughts on this?

My doctor told me to buy Prilosec OTC because he thinks I have GERD, or Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disorder… or something like that.  In other words, I have acid reflux while I sleep.  I’ve been on this stuff for over 2 weeks and I’ve yet to see a real big improvement.  It’s weird, annoying, and interesting all at the same time.  One thing is for sure… I am TIRED of it.  I can’t even talk to people that are in the other room without having to get up… lame.
