Halls Cherry lozenges are my diet.

For the past two and a half days, I’ve had a rather annoying sore throat. I’ve been dealing with it by eating Halls cherry lozenges one right after the other, in hopes of that numbing the feeling of a huge ball in my throat. This morning I woke up only to find out that I lost my voice. I tried to answer my sister’s question by saying “No, it wasn’t me.” Yet nothing came out. It was pretty strange too, because I’ve never had an issue with losing my voice because of a sore throat/being sick.

I’m just hoping that it doesn’t worsen over the next few days. I haven’t had any fevers (though yesterday I felt uber hot–temperature was a normal 98.7F, though I’m usually only 97.8F), though the body aches have been plentiful at night and in the morning. Hopefully with the medicine I’m taking today, I can get rid of it.

I really want to just spend time with Mark, since he’s leaving me on Monday to go up to Michigan. Nearly a week of him being up there, so I really don’t know how to function. After last weekend of seeing him every day for basically six days, and barely any this week, and now nothing next week… I have no idea how to cope. I’m sure I’ll go crazy after the 2nd day of him being up there, because he’s really my lifeline.

On that note, I must clean up my room. My parents are throwing my sister her thirteenth birthday party today, so my room has to look presentable. Oh the woes of moving back in with your parents after 2 years of being on your own. *sighs*


  1. Oh the woes of moving back in with your parents after 2 years of being on your own. *sighs*

    I hear ya on that one. I was on my own for the past 4 years and now I’m back at home. It’s… different.

  2. You cant have anything on your own. I’ve had a sore throat for a few days, but it seems to be worse late on a night and early morning. Very odd.

    Just calling by to let you know you are doing great – well into the blogathon now!


  3. Hope you get to feeling better soon. Losing your voice is bad. You might try honey and lemon tea (if you can handle the taste), that is what my grandmother always gave me when I had a sore throat. If you want to try it.

  4. I hate when I lose my voice, although as a kid it always gave me a great excuse not to talk in class. The lost voice usually goes away pretty quickly, though – the sore throat is what’s an absolute pain. Anyway, I hope you feel better soon. 🙂

  5. I’ve lost my voice twice so far, it’s a weird feeling, saying something and not having anything come out. Hope you feel better soon! 🙂

  6. I absolutely hate having a sore throat. I find that a humidifier works wonders when your throat gets scratchy. I hope you regain control of your vocal cords soon, and try not to go crazy when Mark is away. I hope you feel better soon!

  7. Cough drops are so good. I love the Hall’s Fruit Breezers! It sucks you lost your voice though. I hope you feel better soon 🙂
