I was on the phone about 2 hours total yesterday dealing with getting new TV and internet. Today I feel like I ran a marathon. This phenomenon started about 2 or 3 years ago. This is probably the single thing that really made dealing with life hard. How can you function and take care of things when you can't talk? In 2012 I found, accidentally, that taking Acyclovir really helped. I could have a conversation for over an hour and I was fine. I could talk every day and I was fine. It saved me. Not so much anymore. I know others have this. It really sucks.
