So Thursday through Saturday were great in that I got to start sharing more of my latest projects to people in one-on-one conversations. I was able to share and laugh and speak candidly and catch up with a lot of people I’ve been wanting to talk to for awhile but felt like I had nothing really new to say until now.
And then my body decided it wanted to go through a weird 24 hour sickness where my voice started getting weak (oh no, not another bout of laryngitis!), then my throat closed up and it was so painful to speak and swallow. And I still had two more people to catch up with that night so that was no fun. I woke up the next day feeling better mostly, but a weird dry cough lasted most of the morning. And by the time evening came, I was almost back to 100% normal.
Odd, yes, but I took the hint from my body to take it easy yesterday and ended up napping for a couple hours rather than plow on with more phone calls when I wanted to. In the end, it’s working out. My voice is getting better, there’s minimal throat pain or discomfort, and I was able to have another almost 2 hour conversation with another friend last night.
All is well as long as I listen rather than push through and fight myself. Yay!
