For years I had been wanting to get my throat scoped. I’m an actress and a singer, so my voice is a huge part of my career. I hadn’t been feeling 100% for a long time, and I was so afraid of what a doctor might find. I thought I might need something drastic like severe vocal rest or even surgery. For months on end I pushed through my discomfort, too afraid of what the truth could possibly reveal.
With the help of an incredible support system, the tools SYS offers, and my own inner guide, I finally went to the doctor this year. To my relief, my vocal chords looked super clear and healthy! The doctor put me on medication for acid reflux, guessing that any difficulty I experienced while singing was a result of that, which will be a relatively easy fix with meds and a slight change to diet.
I couldn’t believe I had walked around with that weight and fear for so long, for what turned out to be basically no reason! Finally taking this leap left me feeling immensely relieved and empowered. I’ve learned through SYS that letting go of fear and ego will always create more space for living a better life.
