    Have you thought about referring yourself to the local speech and language therapy service? They would be able to help you by giving you strategies. Your GP should be able to refer you too. x

    I was studying to be a Speech and Language therapist for a little while - dropped out recently due to a few personal issues - but I think you should definitely seek one out. There were a lot of cases I studied in which anxiety was the main cause of the problem, and a lot of different exercises and techniques to manage and tackle it. I actually have the same problem when I get really nervous; all my words get tangled up and it sounds like I've got a gobstoppper in my mouth, but putting the techniques into practice did actually help me out!

    Interestingly enough, there was someone on my course who had a stutter, but was always the main contributor in group discussions. I had a lot of respect for him.

    That often happens to me - if someone asks me to repeat myself, I find it hard to do it without stuttering. For some reason, I think being asked to repeat myself makes me nervous.

    Awww I'm sorry you get so embarrassed, you do not have to feel this way. We are what we are, and we sound like we sound. Be so thankful that you can talk, no matter how it comes out. I do this all the time, I get tripped up on my words, and it comes out wrong, I just try to make fun of myself I go blip blip blip thats all folks, like the cartoon. Try not to concentrate on it to much, and I bet the words will come out much better. Hope you feel better soon.
