Laryngitis!!

HELP!
I am on day 9 of having absolutely no voice... I've been to the doctor, who said it's just a "virus" and they can't do anything about it. I have four kids, and am a SAHM... so I'm so frustrated. Nothing I do seems to help. I've tried humidifiers, hot drinks, alcohol (that was fun...), just about everything. Any of you have tried and true tips that reduce the longevity of laryngitis? I know that resting my voice is the best option, but have you tried going a day without talking at all when you have a 7,5,3,and 2 year old at home? It's impossible. I am frustrated to tears and feeling like I'm never going to have my voice back.

I would say that since you haven't had any luck with this doctor it's time to get a second opinion.  It just might not be a "virus".

I would definitely be going for a second opinion. I wish I had tips for you, but *knock on wood* I've never had that before. GL, mama!
