I don’t see the problem with the word either…. As you know, I became a PWSS more than one year ago, and I consider myself cured. There are still things I want to improve, true, as we will never be perfect. Nobody ever will.
But here’s some proof of that I’m cured. 10 minutes ago I was driving home, and a couple, 20 meters away who were taking the dogs for a walk, said to me, “hello Javier!”. At first I couldn’t recognise who they were, it was dark, but a few seconds later I did: some friends of my family, and I haven’t seen them in ages, although they were aware of the improvements on my speech. They were amazed when they heard me speak. So yes, I am cured. I had a speech impediment. Now I don’t.
