Greetings from an Introvert and welcome to my blog. It’s strange to say but I find myself at a loss for words because there is so much I want to say. They say the journey of life begins with a first step, my journey into the blogosphere begins with a first thought or in my case a first image.
For the moment, I see this blog as a labyrinth. I still haven’t nailed down what will be covered here because I have so many interests. I picture this blog including everything from personal entries about my life to history and science and music. It will be a winding journey through my mind and life, filled with all kinds of twists and turns but heading towards where it was always meant to go. And I hope to take you, the people who read my blog, along with me. It won’t be a smooth journey, there will be stumbles and missteps but that is part of life’s journey. You make mistakes and you learn from them and continue on your path.
I have been wanting to write a blog for a while now, so why now? Why start one in 2018? I have always had difficulty expressing my thoughts, ideas, and opinions because I have had a severe stutter since I was 5. I have tried to find my way to fluency through various speech therapies as well as participating in an experimental treatment where Botox was injected into my vocal folds, and yes it was as unpleasant as it sounds. It didn’t work, by the way, all it did was make my voice sound like Minnie Mouse for 3 months before it wore off. I feel like I’ve had so much to say during my life but have been unable to verbally express about 90% of it. So, I’m hoping this blog will be my outlet where I can express all those thoughts, hopes, dreams, fears, etc. that my stuttering has prevented me being able to do.
So, I hope I’ve made you interested enough to hang around and take this journey with me, I have some things planned I hope readers find interesting enough to come back to check out.
