Thanks John, if it wasn't for you and
your book I wouldn't even believe that I could ever recover. I've got a
question, so although I have already come a long way in my understanding,
unfortunately I still sometimes hold back quite a bit. I have some bad habits
that I should break, like switching hard words for easier ones, saying like or
um to try to get myself out of a block, stopping and repeating myself, and doing
little twitches and stuff to try to break free of a block. I try to always talk
loud and expressive now, but I still rely on those things when I'm holding back
a lot. I tried not doing them, but then I would just be stuck in the block for
like 10 seconds, and people would start guessing what I'm saying, and getting
uncomfortable. If I just stop, and wait until I'm ready without even forcing it
out, then it could take forever. So I'm not sure what to do, because I should
break those bad habits, but when I don't I'm forcing words out, which isn't
good, and if I make sure not to force them out, it could take forever. So what
do you guys think, and what have you done about that?

Yeah, I hear your frustration, Alex.  It’s hard to make concrete suggestions because I’m not working with you directly.  But here’s something you might start fooling around with.  Write up a list of difficult situations, starting with the most difficult at the time and listing easier and easier situations as you work your way down the list.  At the bottom of the list should be situations in which you never have any difficulties speaking.  Once you do that, post the list and we can start exploring what we see and forming strategies.

    Jag gillar den här instruktionen från John Harrison. Jag föreslår att den tas till övervägande även inom TALAkademin. Om det nu finns några intresserade medlemmar kvar längre i föreningen. Det vet jag ingenting om faktiskt, – när jag tänker efter.
