Since I’m a magician, a stutterer, and basically awesome! I am now the Awesome Stuttering Magician!!
Ok or not!
I’m right now on the road, but found a way to update while I am on the road. So yay!!!
I changed the question to see fit.
How do you come across YouTube, and how did your life change since you started making videos?
First, how did I come across YouTube? Well, certainly I don’t live under a rock here. I use this thing called the internets. 😀 ok I’m doing being sarcastic.
Now a good stuttering question. I was driving somewhere one day and went “hey maybe I should make YouTube videos on stuttering”. I made my first video when Mason was nearly 1! She is 5 now! I would say I met some really cool people along the way. Daniele Rossi (www.stutteringiscool.com), Pam, TJ, and got back in touch with my friend Mitch. I have yet to go to a NSA conference. money and time never permitted it. The video of calling Poison Control is the main one. If you haven’t watched it, go and watch it on my channel. I’m glad I was a voice for us for the little moment in time.
Let me say this, my speech is worse now in the past 2 days than the past 2 years. I guess the current situation is making me so emotionally drained that it is affecting my speech in ways it hasn’t in a LONG time. I’m ok with it. I had to go on the intercom yesterday, and I stuttered on the intercom! I have NEVER done that before. I was so mad at myself. I didn’t kick myself for it. You know that feeling when you are just upset at yourself, but that’s it. Yea, that feeling.
ha! I make stuttering jokes at work. My boss is like man I gotta make like 10 phone calls to companies for products. I’m like “Hey, I can call and make them last 30 minutes per call” He just cracks up. I don’t know, the phone is still the vice for the stutter. I HATE the phone. I will call if I have to, but if that doesn’t make my heart race still.
Man, the other day I had to call the movie theater to find my boyfriend’s hat. Seriously, we were in theater 15. You know how much my stutter LOVES f’s and s’s. Shoot me. I dreaded this call, but he was at work already. I was being nice, and boy it was hard. Good thing the kid was polite 😀
Don’t get me on ordering food. I still have trouble. GRRR I could go on forever, but I will let you people go along your merry way. 😀
Have a good day!!!!
