help!!!!!!!!!!!!: adult induced stuttering !!!!EMERGENCY!!!

Postby starberry697 » Sun May 18, 2008 2:55 pm

Me and my boyfrind were drinking quite heavily. We got dropped home and he had ome kind of really bad fight with his mother. I didnt see all the details I jst know it was really bad. He took off to the park and I followed him and then when I started talking to him he suddenly had a stutter. He cant talk properly, he starts a word and will repeat the first sylable several times, sometimes even over 30 seconds, before he can finish the word. He's trying to read this over my shoulder and is still doing it. I am very upset and very worried, I should call someone but I dont know what to do please any any any help I am so desperate. He just said "I know what it saids why can't I say it", he is obviously aware of the problem.

Please help.

Hi,

Why do you view it as a problem - because he does? It shouldn't be a problem because many people have stuttering voices. Is it really upsetting him? If it isn't upsetting him, then don't make the situation worse. Accept him for what he is, not for what you want him to be.

Take care,
Kevin.

Hi again,

Would he go to a doctor about it? The first port of call should be a GP, who can then refer him to a specialist. I was of the assumption that stuttering is a problem that exists from birth. I wasn't aware that it could be induced be emotional trauma.

Hello

I'm new to this site and am a stutterer. I have stuttered since I was a little girl and when reading this I also agree that I always thought stuttering was something that starts early on and not all of a sudden, it sounds almost like anxiety to me.

Hi Teri60,

Yes, anxiety will cause your voice to 'shake' and stutter. When my anxiety levels were at their highest, I stuttered a lot when talking to people. However, stuttering is different from 'stammering', which is a problem that a person is born with. Both problems manifest as the same thing though.

You shouldn't worry much, but definitely see a doctor. It's possible for someone to start stuttering as an adult, but it's very rare, and I believe always treatable. Just go to a doctor and he'll be back to his good ol' self in no time.

Dr-dr-d-drinking will do that t-to you :wink:
Trust all the things I tell you are true, dress up in your best so I can be proud of you, and never believe I won't turn on you, and never believe I do this for you. You're leading me on again and I find it, yeah I like it, and I'm reeling in awe for sure, now I know it was given to me.

That is unhelpful and I will have to take action against you for this.
