Face off

I'm home sick today, I've been sick all week with a cold. I'm getting better, but I have a ways to go. The cold has migrated to my sinus's , that today's development anyway. My voice is also still shot, but it is getting better, I still sound like Marlon Brando, Hardly feminine.
On the brighter side , today I booked into to have a consult with a facial surgeon. My appointment is for late January in Vancouver. I have quite a few things that I would like to have done, so I am going to break it down into three surgical sessions, This will also allow me to pay for it a bit easier.
The doctor that I am going to see is Dr Bowman. He is apparently from Switzerland, and he trained in Belgium. I spoke to his staff at length, they seem quite nice and they have a good idea of what I need.
So for now I have to concentrate on getting well and getting back to my training. I want to be rid of this muffin top of mine.
I just put a new mirror on the dresser beside my bed, I was getting ready for bed and realized why I hate mirrors, they are way too honest. Anyway I am using that as postive motivation to get back to my morning runs.

lending voice

I'm at the stage now, where I get to change my voice. I never realized just how much the various aspects of speech contribute to how the world views who you are.
From Pitch and tone to the what that things are said, there is soo much to learn.
So if your around me, bear with with my as I sort this out. I was considering a surgically implanted clip on my vocal chords, kind of a lazy persons approach. However I have to think about upcoming surgeries, and other medical emergencies down the road. The clip actually can make to process of intubation difficult. I'd rather not be in need of dire help and have some doctor having a hard time intubating me and not knowing why he can't.
So voice coaching it is. I've though about it alot, and traditional voice coaching seems to be the most effective and the safest way to go. So no it's not your ears playing tricks on you, it's actually me learning something new
