As I looked back over my long stuttering journey, I realized that my stuttering was never fixed. In other words, the profile of my stutter was changing constantly. I’ll give one specific instance. In my teen years I would always have trouble with non-variables such as my address or phone number. I was always relieved when those variables changed and I could move on to an “easier” sound. You know where I’m going with this, don’t you? Yes, soon I would “learn” to stutter on that sound which previously had been an “easy” sound. My sense is that this is a common theme with all PWS. After finding my voice, I can’t identify my “good sounds” and “bad sounds” now. However, when I was deep into the writing of my book, I would break out of a long session of introspection and see those problematic sounds popping up again. Thankfully, they would go away when I returned to my voice which refuses to identify any stuttering proclivities. Any thoughts from the panel on how PWS are continuously figuring out new ways to stutter?
