When I Stutter

When I stutter,
Know I'm nervous,
Out of answers,
Stallin' for time,
Tryin' to escape,
Hoping,
Somehow,
Things will be right.

Me too! I used to take speech therapy but since my problem is mental and not physical, the speech therapy did not help much... although I did learn some techniques for breathing and calming myself before speaking in front of others. What has really helped me though is taking Xanax. I started taking it as needed (prescribed by my doctor) whenever I thought I would feel weak and stutter. Over time I've learned from my good experiences speaking and not stuttering, and I have come to need the Xanax less and less. I still take it from time to time and it always helps. :)
