Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I've always had a little bit of a speech impediment, since like the beginning of High School, and it's progressively gotten better and better (less stuttering as years go by) but also there are periods (a few months sometimes) of somewhat increased stuttering, and then after that time passes I almost don't stutter at all.
But my problem right now is that I just want it to go away completely. Lately i've been having troubles saying words that start with the letter D and random other stuff, and conversations don't always flow like I want them to because I have to select other words or lead up certain words with other ones to get the words that I want out. I know I just need to relax my speech and all that, but it's difficult.
I'm sure it's a psycholigcal problem and not physical, i'm a somewhat emotional and kinda moody guy, but it's not like I have aspergers or am introverted or anything like that. I go to the beach daily, go to the gym 4 times a week, and generally have pretty good self-esteem.
Anyway, this isn't anything HUGE, it's just a minor annoyance and I can probably overcome it with time through more personal training as well as getting a girlfriend or something, but i'm just curious if anyone here has experience with stuttering or knows of anything I could do to become less self-concious and self-aware about my speech, since I think that's what makes me stutter in the first place.
