Posted by: firstname.lastname@example.org alex.bernard99 Date: Mon Aug 10, 2015 7:19 am ((PDT)) 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.
