Many PWS have to ask this question to me. I simple reply them “NO“. You can watch me, I have attended two workshop of TISA but still I stammer. Again they ask hopelessly, then for what purpose TISA is?? This time I give my answer with energetic voice. Tisa removes your fear of stammering not your stammering. You may still speak same as before. But after attending TISA workshop or SHG meeting, I guarantees you that you will no more regret of yourself of being a stammer. Is it less if you get someone who can relief you from your 24×7 mental burden and tensions? TISA will surely do this for you, but you have to give at-least one chance to TISA (Ek baar seva ka mauka de tho sahi). I want to share some changes in my beliefs and attitude which I got after attending TISA workshop.
I was a hidden member of TISA who generally reads blogs and experience of other TISA members (who are recovered). I thought by reading and getting their knowledge & experience, some day I will also cure myself. Then I will complete my all dreams (like cracking jokes, arguments with friends, impress and proposing the beautiful girl of my class etc. actually a long list). But I crossed my 23 but still I was waiting for that day. I took admission in M.tech and from here my real fight starts. There was more time to do something for my speech so I contacted some TISA members by mails and phone no’s. But still I was not able to find a suitable technique which can cure the awkward way of my speaking. This was really a frustrating time for me. I got to know that only one person can help me, who cure himself completely and know the perfect technique to get rid of stammering. I called one day that person, Dr. Sachin sir. I asked, “sir ji ,what is the best thing which really helps a person who stutter”. Sir politely told me that it is “Acceptance”. I said ok. But I was really confusing. How can I cure myself if I accept my stammering? But I thought if a stammering guru told me to do that then at least I have to try this thing one time. First time I told my closed friend about this my problem in a closed room. I stammer more while try to understanding him all the things and emotions related to stammering. But after doing so, I really proud of myself like I won a battle and now nobody will stop me to became a fluent person like others.
But after months, time passed, problem was the same. Only one benefit, at least I could stammer without hesitating in front of that friend. But this was not sufficient. I heard that one of TISA workshop was going to organize at Herburtpur in month of May of this year. I planned to attend this workshop at any cost. This workshop was really a nice experience of my whole life till. Every worry, emotions, questions, tensions, shame, fear, guilty were started to melt down like an ice. Like I found god in Herburtpur. But truly speaking my stammering increases when I came back from workshop and I knew the reason why. I was eagerly waiting for another workshop and this time I took all the responsibility to conduct this workshop and I successfully done this with help of Sachin sir and my stranger friends.
Now I conduct SHG meeting in Delhi regularly and there is no 24×7 ghost in my mind. It give openness in all other aspect of my life even other than stammering. Now I satisfy with my life journey and no more regret why I can’t speak sometime that I want to speak. Now I understand that my life is better and have quality standards than many fluent people. Thanks to TISA and my new TISA family!
