I’m Doug and I am from South Carolina. Most of you have seen my ugly mug on Speech Anxiety sites and videos. I am reintroducing myself because I have been on the sidelines for a while. I’m not going into detail, but I have Parkinson’s Disease MSA. You can look it up if you want to, but I am feeling better and really hoping to help out as much as I can when needed.
I am 59 3/4 years old. (Still in my fifties.) You can see my testimony on here, but I will brief it. I have stuttered since the age of 3. Living in a rural area in the South years ago, there wasn’t many therapists. I had one lady who tried to help me in my elementary years but it was basically phonics.
I looked for help and gave up so I struggled all my life on my speech. I learn my tricks, mostly avoidance and I made it until the age of 57. That’s when I found Lee’s book and the rest is history. I read the book and was at least 50 percent fluent after reading.
After getting in contact with Lee we Skyped several times and I was fluent in 3 months. After all those years of a stuttering, I beat it in a few months! It takes work and determination.
I am elated to be here and happy to answer any questions that you have. If I don’t have the answer, I will get you the answer.
The Lee Lovett Method is the only method that can beat that stuttering that stays on your mind 59 seconds out of every minute. If you haven’t sign up, you need to. We have enough to worry about. Speech doesn’t have to be one.

It’s great to have you back! You are a true inspiration for all of us!
And I fully agree with what you said in your intro: “We have enough to worry about. Speech doesn’t have to be one.”
In a few months of hard work we can change our lifes by getting rid of that problem, which has been the centre of our worries all our lives.
Hope to see you at the SAM meetings. It would be great to have you in any of my coaching sessions too, your comments and advice are always very helpful.March 17, 2021 at 9:47 am #29180John KerrParticipant
