When you need to read something when you are tired and your mind is like;
Hello everyone! So I’m dyslexic (we’ve known since I was 6). I didn’t start reading till I was 10. Up until Middle School I was in resource for English and at summer school all break. I also refused to admit that I was dyslexic. But when I was finally allowed to be in English classes with the “normal” kids it became so apparent even I couldn’t deny the fact any longer. With High School came more struggles. But also a realization. It doesn’t matter that I struggle with writing because I’m good at other forms of English. Turns out I’m a great public speaker. All because being dyslexic forces me to memories what I’m going to say! In fact I stumbled upon this Tumblr looking for good things about dyslexia for an upcoming speech I’m doing. My advice for all of you fellow dyslexics out there is don’t give up. One day you’ll find what you’re great at and your dyslexia might just be what makes you so.
By the way the misspelled word count for post was 21, I’m getting better every day. :)
My story: when I was 6 my parents and teachers first noticed I had trouble with reading. My mother being a very persistent woman was both a gift and a curse, she took me to all sorts of crazy tutors I learned reading mechanisms to get through high school and 1.5 years of college until I got so fed up with struggling I got a learning disability test. It took 20 years to officially be diagnosed with dyslexia.
Hi, I’m so happy for you that you finally did get that test and found out you have a learning disability. Do you get extra help in collage now? I hope you realize you are smart because you have learned everything on the same level as the people with no learning disability.
