Hello, Anon.

Thank you for writing.

How to get your voice back will depend on what caused you to lose it. Laryngitis occurs when your larynx (also known as your voice box) and its vocal cords become inflamed, swollen, and irritated. This fairly common condition often causes hoarseness or loss of voice, which is generally temporary.

A range of issues can cause laryngitis, including:
-long-term tobacco smoking
-stomach acid reflux
-overusing your voice
-chronic viral infections
-vocal cord polyps or cysts
-vocal cord cancer

Losing your voice for 6 months can be a sign of something serious. I advise seeing a doctor, preferably an ENT, (ears, nose, throat) to find out why this has happened.

Keep us updated.
