I Am Dyslexic

    I Didn't Realize How.....

    I didn't realize how so many other people had similar experiences. I remember in high school the principal told a small group of "good" students that there were students in the school that would see words with some of the letters backward. Maybe such as a backward R or something...

    Often Wonder.

    I sometimes wonder if I am. I've never had a problem spelling words for the most part I think? I know that when I read certain things I'll flip them around and mix words up really bad. At my job, when I get a ticket I often won't read certain items or I'll read them as being...

    I'm 16 with dyslexia

    and it takes me twice as longs to do homework or class work than my friends. My parents don't think it's a serious problem so they ignore it. It's really hard to get through the school day sometimes.

    I was diagnosed with dyslexia

    when I was a kid. I don't feel like I am but there are times when I write stuff backwards. While reading some words at times are difficult to immediately make out. I guess that's the dyslexia.
