I've been sick with the same cold everyone else in Vancouver has had these last few weeks. And I've always heard that coughing was bad for your voice, and I kinda believed it, I mean it makes sense, but it's never really stopped me before. This time I felt it.
Owee! One cough too early in the stages of my cold and I felt like I shouldn't talk for the rest of the day! So please, if you're sick like so many other people are during the change of seasons. Please don't cough. Hum. Be patient. Endure the tickle. It's not worth it. Your voice will thank you.
