Laryngitis has set in... i have to start mime-ing and sms-ing... thank goodness for sms, what would life be like for a laryngitis-prone person like me without sms??

according to the The Center for Laryngeal and Voice Disorders at Johns Hopkins, i need to "rest the voice as much as possible, increase intake of decaffeinated fluids (particularly water), and use a humidifier". what the heck is a humidifier? is it a "pure humidifier"? or a "whole-house furnace humidifier" ... oh dear.. it also says that "Laryngitis can be secondary to a more serious condition such as benign or malignant growths" if "hoarseness lasts longer than two weeks, or is accompanied by a lump in the neck or blood-tinged sputum"... :O

i hope it doesn't get any more serious than it is now... time for more antibiotics...?
