    Well, technically I suppose though I moved to Banbury when about 3 and lived there (or in the area) for the rest of the time I was in England.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    That would be fun My voice teacher stuttered like crazy but sang beautifully. The brain is an odd piece of machinery.

    You don't hear it when I sing, but I actually have a bit of a stutter. It's worse when I'm anxious or nervous. I was painfully aware of it as a kid (when you hafta go to speech therapy instead of gym in kindergarten, kids notice.) I guess it went away enough or I learned methods around it, because it now really only appears with really emotional topics or I'm nervous. My aphasia, or whatever you call it, is now kinda like my stutter was: I can make it vanish, but I hafta concentrate on calming down, slowing down, and using my mental thesaurus.

    Yup, I can see that. Concentrating on conversation (beyond the content) must be rough though.

    I don't stutter but I do have a lisp. I also have issues with the 'ch' sound...church, ditch etc. It sounds fine in my head but not to others apparently. I am not sure why or what the difference in sound is between what I am hearing and what they are hearing.

    It's SOP for me. I try not to tune out the others in the conversation, so there are times I'll actually say "I can't remember the word" instead of trying to draw it out if it's a conversation where it's better to keep things moving.

    That's a good way of dealing with it.

    I have no recollection of a stutter. Guess I don't make you nervous.
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    It really doesn't appear in day to day interactions, like the aphasia does. It takes major stuff to make it appear now, like public speaking or a trigger event.
