Anyone in here dealt with a case of stuttering? I have a stutter in my speech and it's made my life more difficult. In particular, it makes talking on the phone difficult, and also makes me afraid of meeting new people. (Kinda embarassing when you can't say your name) I know it's a psychological condition and that being nervous makes it worse, which in turn tends to harm my self-confidence. I've tried various tricks to get around it, including trying to relax myself, using word substitutions, breathing out when initiating a sentence, and while most tend to work, nothing seems to be 100% reliable. Anyone else deal with this? How do you go about it?
