Bangalore SHG Meeting Report: 15 June 2015



I was nice cool Sunday morning, I reached 10 mins late and found that our place(Regular hut) was occupied.  so we had to conduct meeting in another nearby hut. I was good change this new hut was bigger and good change for all of us.

First we all did loud paragraph reading, everyone read one page loudly.
then we thought of sharing out stammering experiences,practices and what is working and what is not working for us.Most of us were doing slow reading and slow speaking practice.For me doing rehearsal before some important event is also helping.Why we stammer less during prepared speech because we had done enough practice before delivering it.
Everyone shared shared their experiences and few incidents which were bothering them.
Last week Akash shared one issue with his colleague and we suggested him to
talk to him 1:1, Akash did same and issue is resolved, he was very happy.
few member are in process of getting married and there was big question that, weather we PWS should
tell upfront that We have some speech problem or should hide it,anyway He/She will come to know
after marriage. Is it cheating not to tell about problem before marriage ?

Ater that we took group photo and concluded the meeting.

Attendee.

Siddharth, Akash, Nishil, Ansuman(new member), Anshuman, Lohith, Jai, Ajay,Sharath,Tapan and Me(Rohit)

To tell or not to tell (before marriage)- is a BIG question for many of us... But I think we should make up our mind, based on our own research (ask others in your shg or in IPWS yahoo) and take "customized" decisions.. The woman who truly deserves you, will be OK with your stammering... Also, be ready to accept her, if she wears glasses etc. !!

I feel that a PWS should definitely be honest about everything before a marriage...even about his/her stammering..it may be one point where people will reject you, but just imagine a person who accepts you the way you are, is the greatest soul mate you can ever get :)....
