Profile Information

How would you define your voice problem?
vocal fold paresis/paralysis
Tell us a bit more about your voice problem... (optional)
My voice is erratic in terms of projection. Never loud enough if there's any background noise and sometimes reduced to a breathy whisper.
Tell us a bit about you.... (optional)
I'm an Event Organiser and have been for over 20 years. I'm 43 years old and have taken a my voice for granted in relation to how much I use it for work. I'm now in a position where I fear not being able to continue in my career that I love and the strain it puts on social interaction and even close relationships is now, after 6 months of battling the issue, beginning to put great stress and pressure on my mental wellbeing.
I'm sure others can relate to this and people who heavily rely on any level if voice for a livelihood can appreciate the stress and frustration that vocal palsy can bring.
Tell us what you would like to get from this site/The Lary Project.... (optional)
I'd like to feel like I can gain and offer support from/to others with similar issues. also an understanding of what is actually wrong and the likely outcomes, through communicating with others experiencing similar problems that arise from the symptoms.

Welcome Steve!  Have you been seen in a voice specialised clinic?  If so, what treatment have they recommended?  Surgery?  Speech therapy?  Both?
