I have been sick for the past couple of days. My throat was very sore. Two days ago it started getting better, but then my voice got really deep and my friends described it as sounding like a man! How can I get my voice normal again for school tomorrow?

The vocal cord inflammation that is often the result of common upper respiratory infections can result in a temporarily low-pitched voice, so you may simply have to wait until the sore throat subsides. If your vocal symptoms persist after you are feeling better, I would recommend that you see an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician for a thorough evaluation.
Best of luck to you!
