I confess...When I get stressed, I lose my voice. (I didn't have my voice a lot in college - a doctor attested it to polyps on my vocal chords.)
I confess... I have been without a voice the past few days.
I confess...I tend to do many stressful things at once... that way I get them all out of the way at once.
I confess... When I was 24, I started a new job, bought a house, graduated from college, and got married all in the same week.
I confess... When I was 27, I found out about my ex's (R) infidelity, had my first son, and chose to fight for my marriage even though I was crushed inside.
I confess... When I was 29, I went to the closing of my new house while in labor with my second son.
I confess...When I was 31, I told the school (that I loved working at) that I needed to work closer to home, found a new job, and began the process of my divorce.
I confess... I didn't lose my voice during any of those times... in fact, I think they helped me find a voice I didn't know I had.
