A Stutters Dialect

    PPPPPardon mmme bbbut I hahave a sssspech iiimpppedement Ssso could yyou pplease bbear
wwith mme. TThis hhas bbeen mmy llife. Sometimes its nnot as bbad aas others aand other
times it is mmuch wwworse. IIT hhas cccaused mmme mmmany pproblems iin mmy llife. II
aallways gggot iinto aa lllot oof fffights bbbbbecaause pppeopple wwwwould mmmake fffun
ooof mmme. Once I get ccomftorable wwith the people aaround me it almost sseems tto
disappear. When iits jjust my wife, daughter, close fffriends etc. iit dddoes’t bbother me
aas bbad because III kknow tthat tthey llove mme. When its just my wife and I talking it
is so beautiful because I am free to speak my heart, sometimes I sstill stutter bbut not
sso often. 
     Recently I wwas sssent bby aaa llady nnamed LLinda PPParker wwho wworks ffor ttthe
DDept. of RRhabilitation tto mmeeet wwith aaanother llllady nnamed NNNacy BBBarcal wwwho
iiiis a sssspeech ppppatologist and sshe fffitted mme wwwith aa ddevice nnamed SSSpeeech
EEasy and aas sssoon as sshe ttturned iit oon II tttalked jjust llike tthis. Pardon me but
I have a speech impediment though you wouldn’t know it because I’m now wearing the “speech
easy” device. I know you thought that it was a hearing aid but no my hearing is just fine. 
Written for the Dialect Contest. I realize it's not what
was expected but how could I pass on the opportunity
to tell of such an amazing life changing device. If you
are a stutter such as myself I urge you to check out or
it has most certainly changed my life in a big way!

    Hi Michael. I certainly never realized from your poetry that you were a stutterer but I am glad you found a help for it. I am sure you are a great conversationlist and we would never notice the speech impediment as you call it. Thak you for your lovely easy flowing compliments on my posting. Love, Joyce

    i don't know treatments normally take time. being a people reader means you can read yourself. and belief is a powerful thing. ie. a child who stutters believes they stutters. they tell them it's a problem. and instead of giving them a rock or marble to hold on to. to redirected the unsettled nerves. they send them to classes to learn how to talk. witch deepens there belief they have a problem. so they never grow out of it. you have a strong will. you just need to believe in it. to strong.

    Very creative, MJ! I like the way you explain the therapy treatments and how well they work. Quite an original approach to the contest. Good luck! Carolyn

    What a cleaver dialect entry this is, Michael. Thank you for your comment on my poem, "Huntin' Nuttin" I identified with your remark. See what I do, now. I hope you enjoy the visit. Soupmail, too

    What a sweetie art thou! My significant other stuttered as a child therapy worked for him and singing was part of the therapy! Mike check out diamante form..what its supposed to do is have the beginning and the end give 2 very different feeling and get from one to the other sort of by free associating...try some I think the form would work well for you. Light & Love
