Dear Dr. Cooper,
In 1995 after giving birth to my first child I slowly noticed that my voice was different. At first I thought it was a result of the difficult delivery that I had and 20 hours of labor. Gradually it began to get worse and people began to notice. I eventually went to see a ENT and he said if it doesn't get better I would need to see a speech therapist. Well, it didn't get better and needless to say that started an endless search going from doctor to doctor to hypnotist to chiropractors to psychologist in an effort to get help. I finally ended up at the 4th best head neck and voice center in the country.
