speaking problems

Postby Debbie » Wed Aug 04, 2010 11:08 pm

not sure if it right place to post in

I noticed lately that I seem to be stuttering, it happened alittle earlyer and my dad had to say the word for me, cause i couldnt get it out.
and another thing is that my sentences seem to be gettin muddled up when im speaking

I also can't explain myself properly, I forget what i was goin to say aswell.

Im not sure what it is
any1 have idea what could be wrong? Ive tried to explain best i can and would apperciate any answers :) thanks

No, that happens to all of us here. Once I was trying to say "observational" but couldn't and I got so frustrated that I threw my hairbrush to wall :evil: Most of the time, I have to speak phonetically if I can't say the word but unfortunately, it just makes me more frustrated.

i get that too, yesterday, i said cervical wrong, and got a right bolloking from one of the guys.

i know what you mean by the not explainig yourself, its like you know what something is, but cant explain it. i find the best thing to do is to write bullet points out of what you want to say, and after a while, you might not need to write them out. this helps me organise what im going to say.
the way i see it, dyspraxia is an extra hurdle in every race i run, but that extra hurdle, is just extra exercise, so in the end, i will come through stronger.

The guy shouldn't give a bollocking cause you couldnt get a word out.

The writing it down bit is a good point, but that difficult for me aswell ive tried it before,
any more disabilitys that causes this?

I do that quite a bit too, I think a lot of people who are shy or lacking in confidence may do the same not necessarily a disability thing.

The other day was the first time I tried to hold a full conversation when the part of my brain that handles that was on strike. Normally it's in a crowd or noisy situation, so I can avoid saying anything. I didn't pronounce anything wrong but it was a real struggle to express myself. I was speaking as if I was just learning to talk (disjointed words, only getting out about one to represent an entire sentence), and the strain on my voicbox from attempting to pronounce the words I could was becoming very uncomfortable.

Often words just get stuck for no reason, and it apears I have a stammer when I don't. I can pronounce most English words but fail totally at foreign languages.

I get that too. Some words will just not come out at all. It happens more if I'm nervous or stressed out.

I get what I call speech blocks sometimes when I know exactly what to say but can't physically say it. It gets very frustrating at times.

yes it is to do with dyspraxia

people quite often get me to repeat what I said, most of the time I do but sometimes I dont, as it gets fustrated

there on lecture at my college that I refuse to talk in his lessons as he moans if I cant say a word, which makes feel stupid, so i justr perfer not to say anything.

I'm told I'm the worst explainer ever. I always assume that everyone has had the same thoughts or experiences I have, so I tend to miss huge gaps off of things. Drives my boyfriend nuts. And I'm told I also mumble at times.
