On 16th October 2022 an SHG meeting was conducted in Jaipur.Prior intimation was shared in the group about the date and time. The meeting was scheduled at 11:00 a.m. and me and my nephew Vansh reached Central Park at 11:00 a.m. Before us Aditya have already reached the place. We gathered at a canopy near national flag. Soon after we were joined by Tushar Avinash and Manvendra. In total we were 6 members.
The meeting started with formal introduction and some quick cross questioning on introduction. After this we have discussed about our experience of previous therapies. Everyone shared their past experience of therapy and only Manvendra told that he had not taken any therapy because of financial crunches. To this Tushar answer that Manvendra is very lucky that he has not wasted his money.
Everyone told that therapy that they took provided relief only for a short duration of 2 to 3 months. After that they were at the same situation from where they have started. The reason being that therapy has a uniform dealing but everyone is different and unique. There after there was a discussion about the reason for stammering. Tushar said that he had never thought that of the reason but he said that the speed at which speak is lesser than the speed at which are thoughts came across our mind. Aditya and Avinash also shared their thoughts. Manvendra stated that there can be many reasons for stammering. Vansh also said that in few circumstances his speed of speech increases which may be the reason for stammering. Then we discussed how everyone deals with this issue. Everyone was amicable that prologation can improve or control the stammering and we need to work our thoughts related to stammering mindset.Vansh promised that he will complete his core task. Everyone was very energetic in expressing their views and after a long time this was an energizing self help group meeting in Jaipur. We finished our meeting at 1 o’clock and everyone promised that they will actively take part in SHG meeting. We ended our meeting with a note that next Sunday we will be meeting again.
