Thank you so much for that! There is a lot of information there. It is really nice for me to read Scott Adams' blog. I have had Spasmodic Dysphonia for 20 years and have never met anyone else with it nor have I read anything from anyone else who has it. I have decided that I am going to cure it and I like to see results (or lack of) from the others who are trying to do the same. You don't have it do you?
Again, thank you very much!!
You are welcome. No, i don't have SD, just a weak voice that few people can hear, so i empathize. He wrote a lot about it in his highly entertaining non-fiction book which i read last year , Stick to Drawing Comics Monkey Brain, which i recommend to any with or without SD.
I will get that book - thank you again. I am reading a book, not entertaining but you might find it helpful. The book is called Winning with your Voice by Dr Morton Cooper. Have you read any of Dr Coopers books? Have you tried any methods to strengthen your voice?
There are members on my website, http://www.VoiceMatters.net, who have had some success from the surgery that Scott Adams had (by the same doctor). Also, a couple have had results from less-invasive, ongoing vocal therapies and treatments.
