We all know of the difference in how our voices sound to others from how they sound in our heads, that's why many don't like hearing recordings of themselves - it just sounds... wrong.

Still, I was struck this morning by the disconnect between the voice in my mind, my thinking voice which obviously still sounds like my normal speaking voice, and my current, still hoarse phonation.

I don't know why it didn't really hit me until now. Maybe it's because I'm now speaking more than before so the difference is more noticeable.
