If I don't my voice sounds like a cross between Louis Armstrong & Kathleen Turner.

Yeah.  I would have never imagine what the feel of sand paper would be like in your mouth until my mouth went dry!   That is one terrible feeling!!!!

Yep that is a good slogan!

Not sure if I have mentioned it before but I got a refillable drinks bottle called The Bobble.  It has a filter in it so you can fill it with tap water and as you drink, it filters.  It is an American company so you should be able to find them locally.  The filter lasts around 2- 3 months.

That's cute!

Has anyone had super results from Penta water or some of those expensive waters?

ACK,  I'm in a play, very large part.

Lots of dialogue.

Imagine my dilemma!

I can barely speak without sounding exactly like a cross between Louis Armstrong and Kathleen Turner!

So, fortunately I will be able to drink while in the role.....water of course.

But I sound so 'croaky' all the time, it's terrible.

Love the slogan.
I always had a deep voice, but it was a nice one. At least that is what I was always told . Now I sound likeeeeeee, not sure who. A friends fiance once heard me in the background while on the phone with her and thought I was a man.. That was embarressing.

Great slogan! I'm a college history teacher, so naturally, I do a LOT of talking in my classes - my students probably wonder why I always have a water bottle at hand.  ;D

I had thought that loss of hormones made my low voice even lower but now I think it has been a combination of change in hormones and SJS!  People have always commented on my low voice....when I was younger they thought it was sexy and now that I'm 57 I'm sure that has changed to "manly".... :-\     ohhhhh well, who cares when you have a couple of those black hairs you have to tweeze off your chin, right??   ROFL!!!!

That's pretty good, topping!  ;D  I like it.

Carolina, a cross between Louis Armstrong and Kathleen Turner? That's an interesting sound... :)  I don't know if my voice is lower; it's always been soft and now things just don't come out sometimes.

gold, your voice is probably still sexy...but I recently found out about the "hair thing." I found a little *grey* one popped out near my upper lip; had to tweeze that thing immediately!  8)

That's a good slogan Topping21, and that sure describes me! :D  My new motto now is "guzzling and grazen"! ;D

And tweezing the upper lip Meld?  Sorry that you had to join that club!

Ladies, if you go to a day spa, they will wax any errant hairs off your upper lip for about $8. It takes 10 minutes and lasts a month.

Good Slogan.  It's straight forward and not watered down. ;)

I also like the one I saw on a t-shirt that read "Sjogren's Syndrome left me with a dry sense of humor"

I went to the dentist today for 4 or 5 cavity fillings.  I always take in a bottle of water and keep it in my hands.  When I need to take some water, I raise my hand and they know to stop what they are doing, or get whatever is in my mouth-OUT  so I can take some water.  I couldn't do this if my dentist was planting a crown or something.  I am getting so bad that just a few seconds with that air blowing in my mouth gets mouth, tongue, lips and throat dry.  Lucy

Richy, I like that t-shirt slogan.  :)

susanep, Yes, you're on a roll!  ;D Tweezin and Freezin fits me, I guess. 

meow, I may need to do that waxing soon, but I hope not.

 I said I found ONE so far, Ms. Patze.  8) I'm sure it's little friends will come along.  When I saw the hair I suddenly remembered 2 older sisters who lived around the corner from us when I was little.  I thought of them as old ladies and they had mustaches!  Now I'm thinking they were about my age now...oh my... :-[

Meld we're not old, we just feel like it, and think we are, and wonder where all the time has gone. Oh yeah, that is part of it isn't it?  ;D

ok, so maybe we are lol.....

Truly Meld only one grey I am so very envious,I have so much grey that I am almost white, maybe I should change my name to Snow White.

Great Slogan

Oh, no, smallfry...I have plenty of grey on my head and I'll keep coloring that til I think (or others think) it looks way too unnatural. This is just a new thing on the lip!  :P

My grandmother had beautiful white hair, so maybe someday I might let it go and see if mine looks half as good.

No, susanep, I refuse to think we are that old. We're just "mature."  :D

Growing OLDER is unavoidable....growing UP is elective!

Having said that, I told my stylist a few months ago that I was actually pleased to be showing some grey hair, since it keeps people from asking what colouring I use, then looking disbelieving when I say none!

LOL  I like that - I want a T-shirt!  Thanks for sharing a giggle.

If anyone has seen the movie "Rango"  I also totally relate to the picture of the lizzard all dried up in his little Hawaiian shirt in the desert before the girl saves him with water!

Speaking of T-Shirts I was on facebook the other day and there was a picture of someone wearing a T-Shirt, and it had on it.

I am sicca of my Sjogren Syndrome.

I thought that was well done, and wouldn't mind one myself.

I am 52, and I have about a dozen gray hairs in there somewhere. My color has faded from a rich chestnut to just plain brown, but I haven't colored it yet.  My mother is aghast; she was 50% gray before she was 40. I see her about once a year, and she always asks if I am coloring my hair. NO, mom, I'm not.

Wow meow, I'm sooo jealous! ;) ;D  I had my first gray at eight (that was a tough year ::)), and was pretty much fully gray by my mid to late 20's.

My grandmothers were both redheads, and they just kind of faded to lighter and lighter red, then silver in their 70s. I guess that's what I inherited. Didn't get the nice red hair, though.

Just lucky. My mom says once you start coloring your hair, you can't ever stop.

On avoiding the question of whether you color your hair

My mother had this wonderful streak of silver hair, by the time she was forty. Then the streak never widened, and her dark brown hair stayed dark brown till she was well into her seventies.

That inspired me, a few years ago, to start using Just for Men: A Touch of Gray on my hair, covering most of the changing ash blonde/brown (dirty blonde) hair to light brown, but leaving the streak of the whitest hairs, something like my mother's streak.

For What It's Worth (FWIW)

You could reverse the gray by using the 528 hz tone. I have seen it work. It does look a little odd to see gray tips and natural roots as the process proceeds. Personally, with out my gray people do not believe my age.

A friend that is 10 years younger is often mistaken as 15 years older because of his gray. We get a chuckle at peoples reactions when they find out the truth.

My Apache friend has almost no gray hair, and he is 63. He has deep wrinkles around his eyes and mouth, but his skin shows  none of that crepey thinning that makes those of us from the Celtic tribe look old. He eats and drinks whatever he wants and is in great shape. It's disgusting.

Thank you everyone. I was wondering about the "voice".  I sing (not as well) and teach drama.  I am so thankful for this site.
