    Love it. Keeps everything "Fun" Yesterday I

    was in the rug department of a furniture store. I decided to take a look at the rugs under the "Ancient Rugs" sign to see what made them so ancient. Do you know by the time I got the the rugs, somebody changed the sign to "Accent Rugs." I lost interest in looking at them.

    I have been mildly dyslexic all my life.

    It's been getting slightly worse every year. This is a huge problem for me because I aspire to be a writer.

    I Am Dyslexic And Can'T Spell But I Love Reading

    I honestly hate that it will never go away. That being dyslexic affects every part of me. my brain is a file cabinet that will never organise. I can't spell the same word the same way! But I love to read.

    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.

    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.
