hello im johnny
Im 39 years old ,im recently divorced ,and have had to learn to talk ,i had a very severe stutter .
Im hoping to off load some emotional baggage and help other people on here to learn to live a better life .
Im in a healing process at the moment through mental and sexual abuse as a child ,i admitted to my wife and her parents i was abused as a child and this is where my horror of a life turned to hell .
Im feeling stronger and more confident then ever ,its the first time i love myself .
Thanks
Johnny

Lifes great really now i dont feel anger anymore ,
I think using illegal drugs did not help my condition also drinking heavily ..
If anyone uses hard illegal drugs id kick them in the head now they will just make your problems a thousand times worse and you will never start making an improvement .
Ill always be scarred by what has happened in my life and im hoping in time to help severe stutterers .
I do attend a support group and have joined a toastmasters to try and learn to talk to crowds .
I did suffer severe social problems this was due to having a severe stutter since ive cleaned up my life and stop getting out of reality .
Ive faced all my problems head on and put my life down on paper and this has also reduced tension and helped my healing process .
I hope im talking sense and people can see the improvements im making .
Take care
Johnny
Also learning to love your self i know how it feels to feel worthless and lost .

Well done Johnny that's inspiring to know that people can turn themselves around. I know that my life improved vastly when I stopped the drugs and the booze. I stopped because I was told that if I didn't I had two years to live. And two years to live means you're dying but it will take two long and agonizing years. Keep it up it really does get better as the years go by.
