Internal Rules- Examine them and Break Free
People who stutter often have "internal rules." An example that pertains to voicemail on a phone would be: "I can't leave a stutter on someone's voicemail!" Or, "my personal greeting cannot have a stutter!" Another, "during an interview I cannot have blocks!...if I do, I won't be hired...little stutters are OK but not blocks!" A rule book for stuttering doesn't exist, does it. We can feel so sure about these irrational beliefs. Personalizing and/or projecting are the real culprits behind internal rules.

You won't help me say my name?!?
An adolescent who was unable to say his name without dramatic blocking and who was being teased on a regular basis attended a stuttering day camp. When he asked for help with his name- the #1 reason he attended the camp- he was told "we don't do that here." When a SLP will not help child with his name because of paradigm paralysis the child suffers. Listen to this common sense message.

Patience is Bitter but its Fruit is Sweet: A conversation with Lee Reeves
Managing a stuttter, being willing to disclose that you stutter, and coming out of your shell all take patience! Many of us tried to hide it for years. Lee Reeves, DVM is a retired veterinarian and he has been active in the stuttering community for decades.
