This is my 2nd year teaching and I noticed that since last year I always get a very hoarse voice during the week. It's fine on the weekends and during breaks but horrible during the week. I went to the ear, nose and throat doc to see what could be done after trying every homemade remedy/tea and found out I have nodules on my vocal chords. I started going to speech therapy once a week but feel like it is no help. The doctors tell me the only cure is to rest my voice and change my lifestyle(I'm just plain loud by nature!). Anyway, this is really getting annoying now and I'm thinking maybe I should change careers and see if my voice gets better. I love teaching but I can't keep struggling with my voice. Any suggestions????
