Time Heals….

Tomorrow it’s two years since my dad died. It wasn’t an easy relationship from I was 8 years old after my mum died. Looking through some pics tonight I find a pic of me, a year or two down the line and I look so sad…

This is when my stammer took hold.

Parents must know, they have to talk to their kids, Stammering is only a wee part of what makes them but it can be a huge part of what shapes them.

I just wish I had my parents talk to me more about my stammer openly. It was our elephant in the room. A few years before he died he said to me about his guilt at causing my stammer….it took us 30 years for me to tell him it was ok and not his fault…

Talk. Love. Live.
