advice- fried

hey all. i'm new to singing, only been at it for 2 years and just started singing consistently (3-4 times a week) in the last 6 months. going to some practices around town and the friendship center. the other day i was singing at my school and maybe went at it too hard or let my technique slip but i feel like something broke in my voice. for the whole day my vocal chords were superswollen i couldn't even hum high notes and i was croaking.

i've taken a week break and tried to get serious rest, not even talking, and it's gotten better, but i'm worried about gettin back on it. never been a smoker and i'm not drinking (not even soda)
i have to be honest i'm really bummed that i've been going for such a short time and i feel like i might have already shot my voice. is this a normal experience?

as far as technique goes i'm singing from my gut and trying not to use my throat to shape notes, working on making sure i'm breathing properly but what the heck is with my vocal chords getting so messed up

if you guys have any medicine technique or anything to reccomend or even a kind of reassurance this isn't uncommon i'd appreciate any advice or words whatsoever
