How to Overcome a Stutter? - November 26th 2010, 03:33 AM

Here's the deal. I've always had a stutter, and I've been struggling to overcome it. It seems like it's getting better - then WHAM - it's in a lot of my sentences again. Sometimes I can say a full paragraph without it, but then I say one sentence: Can you pass me my bag? - and it comes out like this: C-c-can you pass me my b-bag?
Or at least it sound's something like that.
I've tried to get rid of it. But it seems to stick with me. My drama class is having a play (oh joy) that I HAVE to take a place in (did I mention the sarcastic "oh joy"?) and I don't want to have it then.
Maybe I'm dreaming about overcoming it in a month and a half, but a girl can hope right?
So how do I get rid of it? Any advice will help.

(PS: If I put this in the wrong forum, sorry, I was unsure.)

I will forgive, but I'll never forget.

Have you ever seen a speech pathologist? They would be able to help you.

There's also breathing and speech exercises that will help. This webpage is really good: http://www.livestrong.com/article/19...or-stuttering/

There's also a really good book called "Understanding and Controlling Stuttering: A Comprehensive New Approach Based on the Valsalva Hypothesis" by William Perry that you might want to check out
