community for people with voice problems started by The Lary Project
yes I have received a weird email from a Christopher Benson saying that he wants to meet a woman and likes me. As if I would be fooled by this!! I may have a voice problem but I am not stupid!
Please do not reply to him. As if you would!!!
Yes go away men who are preying on vulnerable women!
I am about to have another Botox treatment (my fourth) under general anaesthetic as my voice difficulty has returned. But feeling ok about it. I should have another 5 or 6 months of a "normal voice" afterwards.
How about you? What is your difficulty? Are you having treatment?
I would really like to keep in touch with others in the same position as I am. Life can be difficult but with support and friendship it becomes more bearable.
Hi Karen and Kaye,
yes me too with the weirdo! maybe we should deluge him with replies just to call his bluff. Perhaps we could describe ourselves as women of a certain age who are just desperate for male company?!
Karen, sorry to hear about your voice problem. I don't know where you live but it might be worth your while making contact with Annie Elias who runs the Speech and language therapy service in East Kent. She's written a book about psychological voice disorders with a clinical psychologist. Thankfully I've had a thyroplasty operation which has really improved my voice but before that there was definitely a psychological element to it - it went when I was in stressful or anxiety making situations such as doing presentations. Through Annie I met a great psychologist and had a course of CBT which really helped. I did have to pay for it (not cheap) but it was worth it. It didn't cure my voice (I have a paralysed vocal cord) but it helped me control anxiety and to accept my voice as it was which made me a much happier, calmer person.
wishing you all the best
I looked at his profile. He looks very young and what can I say? Yes he must be lonely and desperate.
I'm in East Sussex, Karen you're in the West country. How about you, QV? It helps to know whats going on in other parts of the country regarding voice problems.
Yes, just got an email from Christopher Benson also. Disgusting that such people come to sites totally unrelated to dating to do such things... shame on him. Of course I don't respond to these twats.
