Wow, what an awesome story. I was unaware of this, but apparently 1.5 years ago, Scott Adams, the creator of the Dilbert comic strip, permanently lost his voice due to a condition called Spasmodic Dysphonia. Ever the optimist, he tried and tried and tried different things until just last week when he was finally able to find a way to speak (almost) normally again.
To state the obvious, much of life’s pleasure is diminished when you can’t speak. It has been tough.
Indeed. Even though I'm not a very vocal person, I would be so lost without my voice.
Read the whole entry. You can't help but feel extremely thrilled for the guy.
