For the first time

 

For 28 years, I had never spoken about my stuttering with anyone.  Then I attended my first self-help group meeting with the National Stuttering Association. 

For the first time, I spoke about my stutter with other people.

For the first time, I did not feel alone.

For the first time, I wanted to talk and not stay silent for fear of having a block.

For the first time, I felt normal.
