Dear Dish-It, My Voice Is Cracking


Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

I'm 13 and in the 8th grade. I went on vacation and when I came back after three weeks, my voice was croaking and was squealy for about five days. I went to the doctor and he said it's because I'm changing. I know what that means, but after six days my voice was back to normal. Why is that? Two days ago it did that, but then it got deep again. But now I think that it's going to stay normal, maybe because I talked to myself and I got used to my voice so that it sounds normal. Can you please help me?
Ayman


Dear Ayman,

Sounds like you're going through puberty... but you already knew that. So here's what you may not know - puberty isn't a one day thing. It can last anywhere from a couple of months to a year! When guys go through puberty, their larynx (voice box) grows larger and their vocal chords get thicker. That's why your voice starts to crack, croak, break and get squeaky. It can be pretty embarrassing when you're talking to that cute girl in class and then all of a sudden you start squealing in the middle of the convo! But don't worry too much about it cuz it's just a part of growing up and most of your pals will be going through it with you. And when it's all over, you'll be left with a nice, husky voice!


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

@country_girl19, I agree with Athena. She might not realize how she's making you feel and it's best to talk to her about it, if not it could get worse. If nothing changes after talking with her, then I think you should rethink things. @WatermelonCurlz, I don't really think you should hang around them that much. They don't listen to you or seem to really care about the fact that you've talked about getting different friends. I'm not saying to just cut them off all together, but I wouldn't stray from the idea of slowly distancing yourself.

So I say, I'm going to go find real friends, and they say, OK, like me care. And that's all they want to talk about, at recess, lunch, secretly in class, you name it thye do it. How do I get them to stop?   You should probably just stop talking to them and stuff. don't sit by them at lunch and don't hang out with them at recess. they sound like they are not good friends. if it gets worse, just tell your parents if they don't already know. idk how good i am at advise. hope this helped.  ~JazzyRox

A perfect friend is one who respects your feelings and doesn't make fun of them but helps you feel better, who can drive you only slightly insane, and who will try to save you from embarrassing situations by making you see the funny side. :) :D
