I am 14 year old girl and I'm not sure if I have a speech impediment

by Kaitlin
(Eagle Point Oregon )

When I talk I have trouble pronouncing certain words. Typically R. My friends say it's "cute" but I absolutely HATE it.

And I get bullied because of it. And little kids ask me if I'm from Britain or if I have an accent. It kills me to hear that.

Is there anyway I can sound normal?
