    Insparation For Me To Keep On Doing What I Do!

    When I was three-years-old, my mother, accompanied by the Beatles ‘Drive My Car’, drove me to Nancy. Nancy was a tall woman with crazy black hair. We played games that prompted me to say my ‘trouble’ sounds. When these words came up, she would pause the game, and drill me...

    When I was 4 years old.

    I guess it didn't work because I was still stuttering at 5/6/7 years old. I still do sometimes today, actually. It's more of a problem when I'm excited about something or worked up.

    Mysterious

    Sh - S

    I mixed "s" and "sh" up all the time as a kid. Most of the time it wouldn't be a problem, but there are some words that have different meanings, depending on the s/sh. So I had speech therapy in kindergarten. I had those cards that had pictures of things...

    When I Was 4...

    I went to occupational therapy for my speech and to develop my upper body strength because I was born 2 months early. That was just about my entire 4th year. I stuttered all the time. I'm glad I'm not the only one. :)

    I used to have a speech impediment along with a

    stutter and a Louisiana accent. The accent is worth mentioning because I was born and raised in California. I sounded like a mix of Elmer Fudd, Mushmouth, and Porky Pig. I was put in speech therapy in the first grade. According to my speech therapist I couldn't properly...

    It was hard. I did it from ages 3-7.

    I still can't hold a decent conversation I just rant on about what I want to say. It hasn't always been easy. No doubt I wasn't the cool kid in school. I don't stutter thank god.
