Hi Sun,

Please remember that Javier and I used to live in “your world”. I lived there for 17 years so I understand exactly what you are talking about. In fact, I had fears for about a YEAR before the fears completely disappeared. Now, fears pop up about every 6 months. I actually experienced fear in one of the SAM meetings a few weeks ago (even after years of fluency). The most important thing? Knowing that it does not matter how much fear I experience, I will ALWAYS be able to avoid a stutter by using a crutch. You are still very new to the program Sun, do not be so hard on yourself. It will take time!

Consistency, Discipline, PATIENCE!!!
