I wanted them to react but they just wouldn’t.Then it struck my mind.In my whole life,except me,nobody gave a damn that I stuttered,it was only in my head.I then started exaggerating my stammering a lot.This led to another amazing discovery.As I was faking my block,I could see the other person trying his/her best to help me get my word out and then explained me a simple thing(that I had asked) in a very elaborate manner so as to make sure I didnt face any problem finding the place.My previous belief that people get impatient and uneasy at my stutter was also torn apart.For the first time I saw their faces carefully when I stuttered and I could feel they wanted to do whatever they could to help me.The expression on their face was not of impatience.I didnt meet a single guy who was impatient or made fun of me.
The worlds is full of such people and we pws fail to see them as we are so caught up in our stammering and our negativity.I actually had tears in my eyes as I headed home.I couldn’t believe that all my life I had failed to see such wonderful people from all walks of life all around me !!!!!!
Funny moments-I asked a guy(while stammering) where was sector 15(I had no intention of going there)He said he was going to 15 and insisted me to come with him..When I said no,he just wouldn’t listen to me and kept forcing me until I told him I was waiting for a friend to come.
This is a feeling I had which I find funny.Once I forgot to stutter while talking to someone and when I realized that,I started scolding myself.This was the first time in my life that I was scolding myself for not stuttering.
PS-I request all TISA members to check out my blog http://mystammer.blogspot.com/ where I write whatever I have learnt about my stutter.I could really use your comments to improve my blog.
