Over the past 2 months (since the beginning of December) I have been having voice problems. Lots of symptons but mainly that I keep losing my voice. Its now culminated in a second visit to the doctor last week who has said that I need to rest my voice completely for 2 weeks beforeshe refers me to ear nose & throat dept. The first week is half term and and so far im not seeing much improvement. The second week off would be te first week back after half term but my head is being quite difficult about it. She seems to think that I can come in and mime at the (primary) children to teach them. Is this reasonable and is she being fair? Does anyone have any experience of voice problems and trying to get time off like this? Advice would be greatly appreciated about this as I am getting quite worked up and stressed about it all Thanks!
