“I get so tired of people thinking I am sick.  I am a pretty private person, but should I just tell people I have a voice disorder?” – Anonymous

The simple fact is, many people are not aware vocal disorders exist.  So, it’s probably no surprise that chronic limited or compromised voice can often be confused with short term illness.

At some point in life, we have all had days where someone asked if we were feeling OK.  It seems like such a trivial exchange… maybe not even worth remembering.  However, what if multiple people asked that question… every single day?  This could, of course, be draining for anyone….  So, what if you have a vocal disorder?  Chances are… you may be asked if you are sick.  How should you deal with that question?

In this video, I share my thoughts on how to respond when someone asks, “Are you sick”?   Please do chime in and let me know what you would do?
