I have been listening to your podcast for over a year and its so amazing and informative. I have never acknowledged my stuttering and just last year I discovered that I cope by being a covert stutterer. this road towards acceptance is going to be long one for me but I am ready. what do you do when stuttering begins to affect the workplace and relationships around ? I will keep on listening and who knows maybe be a guest speaker one day lol.. I have so much to say!

Greetings from Toronto Canada

Hi Pearl – how great to hear from you and thanks for the great feedback. So glad the podcasts have been helping you. I would love to have you as a guest one day.
I too was covert for many years and found it to be an exhausting, delicate struggle – to both speak and be heard and to be authentic. The best thing I did when stuttering affected things in the workplace and with relationships is that I owned it. I started disclosing to people that I stutter which made things so much easier for me and educated others. My work colleagues respected the fact that I was upfront and beyond that, didn’t really care. I find that to be true with friends and acquaintances as well. Being true to self helps others as well.

you are right about that.. I have started disclosing my stutter to colleagues and also interviewers. thank you once again.
