Brenda lives with a complex neurological disorder called Myasthenia Gravis. MG causes widespread muscle fatigue and in many cases it has dramatic effect on the muscles required for clear, strong voicing.

Justine talks about the impact on her career as a school teacher and her refusal to ‘give up on living’.


Carolyn shares her experience of living with a voice disorder that is still yet to be formally diagnosed. She has been searching for answers, while as a teacher her career has been upturned, and her family life impacted. She remains philosophical and optimistic but the challenges are significant.


Greg is at the peak of his botox treatment and happy to share a little of his Spasmodic Dysphonia story. From an unexpected career change through to the frustration of the drive-through, he is pragmatic and honest about the impact his voice disorder has had on his daily life.


Mark has spent all of his life entertaining people. With a stage career that started in childhood, his voice has been his trademark, income and identity… that was, until Spasmodic Dysphonia came along.


Lyn lives with Multiple Sclerosis and has Mixed Spasmodic Dysphonia plus Tremor. She speaks of the difficulties being diagnosed, and then the lack of understanding about voice disorders in the medical profession as well as the wider public.


Passionate about raising awareness Louise shares a little of her experience of 15 years with Mixed Spasmodic Dysphonia. Always a chatterbox, over the years she has found ways to trick her brain into dodging or at least reducing spasms, while fine-tuning her botox regime. She is still talking – even when she struggles.
