“My Friends Make Fun of My Stutter”

I am a 23-year-old woman with a stutter that I have had since before I can remember. It's unusual for adult women to have a stutter, so it's typically the first thing that people notice about me. I got teased a lot in school and, for a long time, my self-worth was pretty low and [...]
