Oh my goodness,,,you poor thing. I know whenever I go into a flare,,,first thing to go is my voice. I lost it for 5 1/2 weeks,,,got it back for a week,,,now it's starting to go again. Do you totally loose your voice with a flare?
I know what you mean about not having enough wind to speak,,,I drive a school bus,,,can hardly get out my 'corrections' over the mic before running out of air.
I'm not sure what you could do to help it out,,,guess I just wanted to let you know I have read your post,,,you're not alone!
