I wish to God I'd known about them as a kid, because I maybe would have avoided eight to nine years of it not being an easy time... (But) it started to eke itself out; between the age of seven and 14 was when it was really bad. And around 12 it was at its worst. Not an awkward age at all to be unable to speak!"
