Yesterday i attended my second SHG at herbutpur . We were total 10 persons as follows -- Dr Sachin ,Mahesh , Ashish singh rawat ,Gorav datta(me) ,Pavan Singh Rathore ,Vaibhav n his father , Vijay n his uncle and Mukkaram .
In my first SHG at herbutpur I was stammering a lot as usual but I told myself that next time I will come with more practice . Hence I did my practice by reading using bouncing techniques .
First of all we saw the movie “ FRONT OF THE CLASS “ and then shared our view about the movie.
Then there was Introduction round . I was getting scared as my turn was coming nearer . I don’t know why I was getting nervous because I am attending a Self help group in which everyone is a stammerer and it was not my first SHG . May be because some new stammerers had come to attend the SHG . May be I was expecting a fluent introduction because I had been practicing reading using bouncing technique at my home. Don’t know exactly what the reason was. When it was my turn to introduce myself using bouncing technique I had a severe block on the very first alphabet ‘ में’ of the sentence ‘मेरा नाम गौरव है |’ immediately I applied cancelling technique and stopped my speech ,took a deep breath and started again . But again my mouth was now opening on the very first alphabet ‘ में’ and then I left all my technique and started stammering as I used to and gave my introduction . While I was giving my introduction Dr. Sachin told me to use bouncing technique but I didn’t listen to him because I was not able to apply bouncing technique so I continued speaking as usual . I felt very bad that I was practicing bouncing technique at home but what happened here my mouth was not opening at all how can I use bouncing techniques . I was very upset at that moment .
Then members who were new to the SHG were asked to give more introduction about themselves and I was one of them . Now I decided to speak using bouncing technique and soon I found that bouncing is not working because the very first alphabet is getting stuck & I was not able to bounce on the very first alphabet of the word . Then I gave my introduction in the way I use to speak .
After that we had some general talks and then we played few games . After that we gave our Introduction using volunteering stuttering , this I did very well .
After that Dr Sachin told about some vocal exercises and we practiced that . It was a great meeting .
