A mute lobster..

Monday, January 17, 2011

I woke up this morning, and I was SO STIFF.

Not from my run (except for my outer thigh that was sore) but from my SUNBURN. I looked in the mirror and I am DEEEEEEP red (going to blister I can tell) all over. I was wearing a racerback tank top and capris yesterday. And I'm the WHITEST person you will ever know. Trust me. I look like casper got colored with a crayon. It looks as bad as it feels!!

Then, I get moving and I go to wake roxy up and take her outside..I call her. And nothing but a super scratchy sound comes out of my mouth. Thats right, I HAVE NO VOICE! Yikes.

I felt fine (except for the major burn) thank goodness. I put aloe vera all over me, then get dressed. I had NO appetite! Get to work do my thing and get to the facility. They were giving me ALL sorts of looks. Oh, forgot to mention I actually wore SUNGLASSES on the run yesterday and burned my face (and ears) so I look like a racoon! Sheesh. Anyway, it was quite a challenge trying to talk to the patients all day (i strained - not good) and got it done.

I've NEVER lost my voice before so I'm not sure how to cure it! Any suggestions? Home remedies???

In other news, I got my appetite back, and my eating is still good. Still on track.

Hope you all had a good start to the week...and LUCKY DUCK to all that got to have today off!!!!!

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT ON MY 20 MILER!!!!!!

    Sorry for the sunburn. Almost wish I had that problem. You see I have to wear about 3 layers to keep from freezing to death. I would like some sun. emoticon
    Hope you feel better soon.

    Ouch! Aloe gel to the max! Regarding you losing your voice, drink tea - plain - and gargle with warm water and salt. I lose my voice the day after I go to see a concert (so alot ;)), but if it sticks around longer tha 3 days get your butt to the doctor!!

    I agree with the tea.

    The only time I ever lost my voice it turned out to be a massive attack of Mono, and there was nothing I could do for it (not that I say that to scare you into thinking you have Mono, because you so don't. You wouldn't have made 1 mile on your run if you had mono!)

    I always use the salt water gargle for throats.

    Lots of hot tea with lemon and honey would be my suggestion on the voice - I'm pretty sure that's what my son would do when he had a big choir concert coming up and needed to make sure his voice was in good working order. The lemon being the key.
    Hope you feel better soon!
    Ouch!

    OMG - you have a sunburn too? You poor thing. Be careful you don't get really sick. I'm sure your body is saying WT* right now after a 20 mile run.

    Were you down on the boardwalk in HB? Where the marathon is going to be? I used to run there when I lived in HB and the glare off the water combined with the white sidewalk are a killer on the skin. I hope you're feeling better soon.

    If your voice is still hoarse, try some fresh ginger steeped in hot water for 5 or 10 minutes. Strain it and add some honey. We drink ginger tea a lot and it seems to help with the allergies that seem to hit my throat.

    I'm jealous that you even HAVE sun to be burned by. The whole ordeal sounds terrible though. You paint a lovely picture of yourself with the raccoon eyes. I wonder why you lost your voice. Seems odd. Keep on working. Sounds like you're doing real well.
