hey pit monkeys

I have a bit of a stutter and I am very self conscious about it,

Does anybody else with a stutter think that it has hampered them in social situations?
i.e meeting girls/boys and/or people think you are slow or stupid.

Personally I think it has effected me a lot in social situations, and it makes me really nervous meeting new people. When I do meet new people I tend not to talk to them out of fear more than anything else,

your thoughts Pit?????

I sometimes stutter but it's only when i'm talking to alot of people or talking really fast. When I get nervous kinda, but it only happens for like 1 word so it's not noticeable or important.

At least you don't type with a stutter, that's embarassing.

I kinda had a stutter for a while a few months back, and I also couldn't remember words that I wanted to say a lot of the time. Sometimes I just couldn't say sentences, it was fucked. I'm all good now though

Edit: Now that I think about it, that came and went with the bad anger problems I was having, and it was all during a really bad period of being down. Guess it was all related

If I'm tired, I tend to mumble alot. My dialect might be hard to understand to some as well, so that doesn't help it. I found that avoiding stuff like pallatalisation (not present in English) as well as slowing down whilst talking helps though.

Sometimes I stutter as well, but that is when I am really nervous. I do more often correct myself if I use the wrong words, or if the syntax is slowly ****ing itself up whilst I form a sentence. I also forget Norwegian words, even though that is the only language I speak everyday.

When I was a child I couldn't talk until I was 4 because of some surgery that went wrong but all is well.

Well, until a few years ago. When I OD'd on synthetic herb and smoked a ton of weed to try and cope with whatever the hell happened, it started making me stutter a bit. Once or twice a day anyways. It was really scary and I got really conscious about it. I've always been a fast talker my entire life, so I decided that now was the time, more than ever, that I had to try and slow down my talking speed.
I seem to be okay now. It scared me because my speech development was a bit delayed because of that shit when I was a child and I had to go to speech therapy in grade school.

Best thing to try to do is to slow your speech down.

EDIT: Just so it doesn't seem like I'd rather fix my talking than stop smoking weed, I stopped smoking weed as well when the minor stuttering was going on.

I had one when i was a kid so I never ever talked. But it's mostly gone now. Depending on the situation i have to say things a couple times before it comes out right. I just really really dislike talking in front of people which makes me seem a bit unfriendly if they dont know me.

I have met a few people who can be assholes about it.

when I was out one night with a few friends, these 2 random girls I tried to talk to made fun of my stuttering, I told them to go f**k themselves and walked away. It ruined my night and I went home early.

I've been developing a stutter very slowly over the last year or so, I guess this is due to me not opening my mouth wide enough and over thinking too much of what I say.

I'm not very coherent in the way I talk and people are forever saying 'pardon' to me.

I'm working on it though.
#11
I have a little trouble pronouncing words beginning with R. It's probably not as bad as I think, but I used to work with someone who took the piss out of me for it. In a friendly joke way and I found it funny.

And then, to make things worse, I received a parcel very late. On the address it said "Mr Muway" that was crossed out then next to it it said "Murray"

That that didn't help matters.

I also find it difficult to find my words sometimes. When I'm talking my brain will fart and I'll completely forgot what I was saying.

I tend to mumble because of a jaw problem...

I have one and it's quite hindering for me. So much so that I can't even ask a stranger for something. I start struggling on the first word and then I feel so bad knowing that people can hear me struggling to say "Excuse me".

This many people have a stutter?

Even though it's the Pit, I'm kind of surprised.

I know this one girl that has a slight lisp and she pronounces R's sort of like W's with some words. Like the way a French person would say croissant, but a little bit more so. She's kind of cute. She used to be a bit chubby, not that chubby though, but she always said she was too fat, the way girls always do. But now she's lost a bit of weight. I think she was cuter before though.

Anyway...

So one time I was outside with a friend of mine, and I was reading this one poem from my English textbook to him, called "Maybe Dats Your Pwoblem Too" by Jim Hall. You can find it here about a quarter of the way down the page.

For those of you that are too lazy to click the link and read it, it is a poem narrated by Spiderman about how it is not very good being Spiderman, except the Spiderman narrator has a lisp. Again, that blog has an explanation, if you care to read.

So this girl comes over, and she's like "Hey guys" and so my friend is like "Read that poem to her" because the narrator talks like she does, and then I read a few lines and she got mad at us and left. It was pretty funny.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

But I respect you for posting it and would help you kick someones ass for poking fun at it.

Not really affected me
Tbh I don't really care about it
It happens, can't really do much (....well you probably can...but I cannot be assed to)

It's not THAT much of a hinderance....

Never had a stutter, but when I was little, like pre-school age, I had trouble with R's.

Sometimes I trip over words, 'specially if I'm talking fast. My family always says I mumble, but that's 'cuz I speak quietly whereas they're all loud as fuck & don't have conversations so much as yelling matches.

Exactly this.
#23
I did when I was little. It was pretty bad actually. I went to some medical place once or twice a week for a year or two with some speech specialist, and it got fixed. Not sure if it was her doing (I'm thinkin it wasn't) but now I'm pretty much fine, with it popping up very occasionally. Maybe you could get help and have it fixed, TS.
#24
I've used my throat to say the R's for the rest of my life and still do. So yes, my R's kinda sound different, but I don't care as much I used to.

Oh yeah, one friend of a friend stuttered, but it didn't bother me at all. The people who start some shit, because of your stuttering, aren't worth your time anyway.

I once knew this guy called Lloyd with a stutter. My friend didn't know he had a stutter, however.
When my friend heard somebody taking the piss out of Lloyd by calling him "L-l-l-Lloyd" he assumed that was just what people called him, due to the way his name was spelt.

When he called him "L-l-l-Lloyd", he got his ass kicked. Seriously kicked.
Don't you hate it when you're reading a sentence and it doesn't end how you testicles.

Did you hear the one about the boy with the short atten

Do you stutter when you talk really slow? Try practicing and think about slowing down your speech.

I never stuttered but I talk really fast when I have a lot to say, like during presentations and trip over words sometimes. So I just slowed it down and that problem went away.

Totally different, I know, but I believe stuttering is caused because you try to speak as fast as you're thinking. (At least that's why they used to tell people back in the day).
#27
I suffer from a stuttering problem. Yes it has held me back from a lot of things (meeting new people, avoiding social situations, not saying what I really wanted to say etc). When I was younger I use to get picked on constantly because of it. But all of that just helped me to grow stronger and become a better person. Therapy has helped me A LOT. When I was younger I use to have a very serve stutter, now I have a mild stutter. I plan on majoring in Speech Language Pathology in the fall so I can help other people like myself.

I have a moderate to sever stutter, depending on stress levels, who I'm talking to, how tired I am, etc. I'll talk to anybody, but all sparingly and often times very fragmented. I guess I found that's the right happy medium for me. Talk to everybody a little bit, but not one particular person for a long period of time. If that makes sense.

Sometimes when I'm really struggling I'll wear something called a Speech Easy. It's basically a modified hearing aid that helps if you have a stutter. It helps for the most part, but if you don't like having something wedged in your ear like I do, it can be irritating.

I tend to mumble a lot, but the weird thing is, as soon as I have to read something, or I'm onstage (I do a decent amount of acting), it goes away.

I'm pretty sure it's just due to laziness.
#31
I stutter when I can't think of anything to say sometimes. But people usually look past it. It isn't a big issue for me.
#32
I tend to mumble a lot and I have to force myself to speak in a way that can be understood. It's mainly that I don't like talking to people very much. Some woman decided to bother me earlier when I was having a cigarette and she had to ask me to repeat myself like 15 times in the 5 minutes that she stole from me earlier.
