OK I stutter. And I just want to check if anyone here or known someone who has this speech impediment. Usual things I'm having difficulty doing: 1. Saying my name 2. Speaking through a telephone, mobile phone, conference meetings, etc. 3. Speaking in public Although it would appear most people don't know this condition. And, it's common you've been ridiculed, but yes it is what it is, and somehow I've come to accept that it's what makes me/us special.
