“Beginning to feel rather worthless, and not sure how to handle it…”

Wow, what a powerful post.  For those that may not know, I used to be faculty at Gallaudet University, which is a university (established by Abraham Lincoln) for the deaf community.  As such, issues surrounding deafness are still very sacred to me–so I was quite floored when I saw my two passions (deafness and stuttering) combined.  And in such a powerful and raw fashion that it cuts to the quick.  This is why I love the Internet; the glimpses of raw humanity: the victories and the challenges.  Definitely worth your time.  There are powerful emotions when one is perceiving that they are losing their voice, as a person.  People who stutter face it; some in the deaf community may face it.  We are not alone.  Yet, I firmly believe that with self-help and self-advocacy, we can most definitely overcome it.
