Christian, Texas

I’m Christian. I’m 25 and I live in Texas.  I began stuttering in my teens.  It was very severe then, and I had quite a bit of therapy in my school years, but it didn’t make much difference.  

By my twenties, the problem has lessened, I think mainly because I avoided talking.  It was funny.  The less I talked the easier talking was.  In my job, I didn’t need to talk much at that time.  There was still a problem though.  When I had to talk, especially to authority figures or groups I still stuttered noticeably.  

A friend told me about Lee’s stuttering book in 2019, and I loved it.  I joined Speech Anxiety Cures and watched some of their very helpful videos.  Lee and I exchanged quite a few emails and we Skyped a bit.  His approach made so much sense.  I began using some of the Crutches.  In time, I just focused on C13, no crutch at all, not planning words.  

I can’t remember the last time I appeared speech disabled.  Some say that stuttering can’t be stopped but that just isn’t true.  I hope that you won’t buy into that nonsense.
