“Your either a PWSS or PWS….what’s it matter how bad you stutter???”

Because subjectively, it’s not the same to struggle for 30 seconds with one word or be almost completely silent like a mute person, or just having some small disfluencies. Which one person do you thing has more difficulties in life? The one who grimaces and struggles helplessly and occasionally can’t even omit any sounds or the one, who is a bit disfluent and sometimes repeat words but can still function in our society (having a job that requires speaking, talking to a group of person, calling a stranger on the phone, even making presentations etc.) without much difficulties?
