A Singer’s Worse Nightmare – Losing my Voice, Losing my Identity
I lost my voice for 2 years. Had 3 operations on my vocal cords to remove the lesions. It was quite traumatising as I was a really talkative person before and spent most of my 20s and 30s with a sporadic voice. When I had no voice it was the most miserable experience ever.
