  1. Thanks so much, Elizabeth, for sharing these wonderful insights, and helping me/us give expression to our experiences. This also helps me explain to others the phenomenon and the pain of Covert Stuttering.

  2. People used to think I was so thoughtful and contemplative because I rarely spoke and when I did, it was such a concise sentence or just a witty remark; anything to keep the other person talking. For the longest time, I thought this was how to “beat” stammering. Nowadays, people know I am mostly a smart ass with a head FULL of useless trivia and I make them wait for the most mundane conversational utterances. lol This is a great series, Elizabeth!! Can’t wait to see what comes up next!
