Making follow-up phone calls to the 10 resumes sent out this morning by email was difficult. My voice does not sound like I remember. I had a sweet, clear voice. Midway through most phone calls I realize I am slurring and sound slightly drunk. No wonder no one ever calls back when they say they will, but I keep trying. Interviews are tortuous also, I start to get self-conscious and controlling my voice gets hard. After not being able to swallow liquids for so long and the choking all the time though, I am happy to have a voice period. Hopefully over time I will grow back into my voice. I want so much to go back to work, but suggestions from this board about volunteer work intrigue me. Working and helping could be the ticket to this self-imposed isolation.
