Hey! First off, thank you for sharing your journey!! Second, I was wondering if you could tell me how you got started with voice treatment? I’ve been on T for a year and a half now, and I’ve been experiencing some pretty bad strain on my vocal cords, but haven’t mentioned it to my doctor, because as supportive as she is, I’m the first openly trans patient she’s had, so she doesn’t have a lot of resources available for me. I’d love to work on my voice so I don’t hurt myself when I speak/sing.

My voice treatment is categorized under muscular tension dysphonia. I asked for a full voice evaluation, like why my voice couldn’t comfortably produce lower pitches. They said the tension was raising my pitch. They scoped it with the help of an otolaryngologist and I proceeded with voice therapy.
