User :   I had a bad sore throat, and about three days ago, on Saturday afternoon, I lost my voice. I am barely able to talk, and am only able to whisper. I try to refrain from talking as much as possible, but what else can I do to get my voice back. I have graduation this Saturday, and would like to be able to speak somewhat. Thank you.
