I still can't sing ! =(

We have choir practice on Wednesdays tried a little last week could not do it.  Sunday didnt even get up there but tried in my seat, hubby laughed and told me to please be quiet.  I laughed too so no big deal.

When do you think i will be able to sing again, I also sing with 2 other people we sing specials but that is a no go right now...LOL.
It has been 2 weeks so maybe I am trying to rush it, I dont know.  My pastor fusses when I try to sing he said he is not going to let me until October...LOL.

Sorry Dana- you 'll probably have to be milli vanilli for a few more weeks!!!   LOL(
      ( lip syncing isn't so bad unless you were paid millions!?!)

          I dunno probably at least another few weeks. That's alot of strain on your neck and singing hymns isn't easy- relax it will happen before you know it.

Remember the sitcoms of long ago when the mom always lost her voice right before the big church solo?  They ALWAYS cured it with  S T E A M!  See that's all you need, lots and lots of steam. ;)  And remember to stay under that towel while Alice fixes you a new steaming pot!  =+)  And remember the voice always comes back THAT morning.  So the thing is that you need a really big solo coming up to get well.

Your voice will come back, I'm sure of it.  My aunt had the same problem.  She had not been able to sing in a long time because of hoarseness from nodules.  But after about 4-6 weeks her voice was back stronger than ever.  She has a really rich alto voice and it has never sounded better.  You will be back there too.

Oh honey!!  It's only been two weeks!!!  I tried singing again in church on Sunday, and that's 5 weeks post-op for me.  My 18 year old looked over and rolled his eyes.   But then he bucked up and sang FOR me!!  Neither one of my boys like to sing in church, but I told them they had to take over for me while I couldn't.  I had some complications from my surgery, so I don't anticipate that I'll be able to sing for a while.  I don't think that's the norm, though.  By the sounds of it, only a few more weeks and you'll be right back where you were.  Good for YOU!

When my hair grew back in after having RAI, it came back in curly.  I went from have dry, briitle, stringy hair to really cute curly hair.  Maybe your singing voice will come back stronger and  better....or maybe it will just come back curly???

Serious?!?!?!  Oh my gosh, I've never heard such a thing!  I may have some body to this nasty, lifeless, stringy stuff I call hair?  Wow.  I'm not joking either.  My hair is just like a two year olds.  Very fine and soft.  Try styling THAT!  Not fun.  I'll just be glad if it doesn't fall out.

Serious....before all this thyroid stuff happened my hair had a little body to it, but no real curl and was normal in dryness.  After RAI, my hair became very dry and brittle, and started thinning ALOT. It even came out in clumps a few times.  I could see my scalp around my temples and in the back of my head usual where a guy goes bald.  I tried every time of shampoo/conditioner known to woman and nothing helped.  My endo said hair grows in 3 months cycles and it should stop falling out about 3 months after RAI.  And sure enough she was right.  After 3 months I notice new little hairs around my temples.  After a few hair cuts, my hair dress commented on how curly my hair was getting.  Now it looks like I've had a perm.  I went from bawling my eyes out in the shower the first time my hair fell out in a clump, to this new texture that all I have to do is diffuse dry and use my fingers to style it.  Kinda makes ya wonder what the radiation has done to the rest of your body when it can make your hair curly???

I always had really coarse straight as a string hair that tended to be oily.  Also had a ton of hair.  Then with Graves' I lost at least 2/3 of it.  Would wake up a couple of times a night just to clear hair off of pillow.  Got to the point I wouldn't even comb it anymore, b/c too much fell out.  You could see my scalp everywhere and was always burning it.

When my hair came back in it was curly and kept getting curlier.  It seems now that the curliness is kind of going away.  Dangit!  Not gone, just wavy now.  Use to be able to just dry and finger comb.  Not any more.  But I still won't complain b/c it is getting really thick again.
