I've stammered since I was a k-k-kid. Ssssometimes it's w-worse than others, but mostly I g-get along fine and people are k-k-kind about it. I've had therapy, and it has gotten b-better. I hate songs about st-stammering though. There's one that suggests if you stammer your a liar, that's so unfair. I w-wish I c-could tell them that.

Most people think of a stammer as one where the first letter of a word gets repeated before the word is finally spit out. Some think a stammer is a sign of nerves. Others think it's because you don't know what you want to say. But for me, none of those things are true. I know what I want to say. I know how to say it, and instead of repeating the first consonant, I have a long drawn out silence before I say anything at all.
