T-t-t-today Junior! A Stutterer's Tale
For me, being afraid or anxious to speak is a fact of life. I've had a stutter for as long as I can remember; growing up, I was constantly told I would "grow out of it", but I never did. Throughout my childhood, it made me an easy target of bullying and ridicule. My stutter was viewed, both by others and by myself, as a problem to "fix", something I could "fight", or "beat", like some disease or disorder. I became terrified of speaking, of performing, of being the center of attention. This is the story of how I learned that my stutter is not a beast to wrestle, not a monster to defeat, but a lifelong companion.
