February/March 2013 Newsletter

With spring in the air, the members of the Queens Chapter of the NSA have gathered twice over the past two months to discuss the role that stuttering plays in their life. Although I have said this many times, I still find it rewarding and humbling to see the joy and relief in the faces of all of the attendees. There is a sense of peace and clarity at our meetings that is truly a once in a lifetime feeling. It is frequently captured during optional introductions. For example, one PWS shared that his “stutter buddies” often allow him to feel comfortable and conquer any stuttering situation that comes his way. During our past two meetings, the topics of conversation have included discussions on fluency as a means of acceptance and the giant and chains complex. We also briefly discussed recurring topics such as acceptance and dating as a PWS. Although most of us may find it difficult to find a “fluent rhythm,” we must ask ourselves whether fluency or acceptance is what we are striving for. While I agree that fluency would allow you to order a cheeseburger rather than a steak, or make an important phone call rather than ...

Happy New Year Everyone! On January 14th, 2013, members of the Queens Chapter of the NSA gathered together to reflect on the role that stuttering plays in their life. As optional introductions began, it was clear that all attendees, new and old were genuinely pleased to be spending their time with other people who stutter, or how I like to refer to it, other people who “get it.” It is always empowering to witness firsthand the trust and reassurance PWS can give one another selflessly and graciously. Several attendees mentioned during introductions that they enjoyed coming to NSA meetings and they were already looking forward to the next one. Over the past four years, I have witnessed the overwhelming ease and comfort attendees exhibit during NSA meetings and this meeting was no different!   As the meeting progressed, one attendee posed the question “are job interviews seen as failures or do you grow from tough situations?” As persons who stutter, we may often feel like our stuttering outshines our personality on job interviews. We may become so anxious when advertising our stuttering, that we forgot to mention all of the amazing qualities we possess. In my personal experience, I relied on advertising ...
