“Speakaholics Anonymous”… What Do We Mean By That?
For many years, we have been attending to various people with speech problems, possessing voice disorders like:
- Spasmodic Dysphonia
- Polyps on the vocal cords
- Nodules on the vocal cords
- Cysts and lesions on the vocal cords
- Acid reflux & simply… strained vocal cords
I have my own definition for the latter. I call it a “Vocal Swamp”.
It, understandably, can be a very disappointing and frustrating endeavour. But what choice do they have? Should they give up now after all of their effort and investment of their time, energy and yes, money as well, or should they persevere and continue to “push forward”?
However, in reality. the above statement is not really funny.
Everybody knows that when you are trying to get rid of any addictions (and the wrong use of voice is no different then any other addiction).
Is it hard to stay on tack - you, my reader, may ask? Very hard indeed! But what choice do we have?
