I Am Forgetting How to Spell

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 136 People

    I want to blame age, memory,

    internet....but I think I'm just turning derpy. Too many years of texting and shorthand? Are little gremlins somehow stealing my brain cells through telekinesis as I sleep? Very early senility complex?

    Bloody Spellcheck

    I was taught the old fashioned way. Twenty spellings a day. I got a dictionary on one of my birthdays ( I still am a bit of a saddo).  I have noticed lately that constantly using the PC to write documents and letters with a spell check has made me lazy. I just type in...

    Dyslexia?

    I wonder if I'm having a touch of dyslexia or if my eyes are just getting worse. I lately have been mixing up the letters "b with h" and "r with s or t". Sometimes "n with h". My brain reads it right, as I type it... but then later, I either catch it...

    Annoyingly

    Age 6:  Could spell such words as necessary, favourite and rhythm. Best speller in my class, even had an award. Now: Can't spell to save my life. I only just realized that 'suprise' should be spelled 'surprise'. No one mentioned this to me until recently. I take refuge...

    Lazy

    The wavy red lines are making me lazy...they tell me when I typo without my needing to figure it out on my own.  And then I can get the correct spelling with just a couple of clicks.  I no longer know how to spell or think for myself; I just let the computer do it for me!

    Steel, Steal; That's One Example

    Just by looking at my story title I know "steel" means an alloy of iron and "steal" mean to rob. But when I go to write one or the other (and by far most often I need to write "steal") I cannot decide in my head which spelling is correct. I have to type one or the other and look...

    But It's Not Important These Days ...

    To think I'd get a D in public school because I used today's texting shorthand back then.  If you put the apostrophe in the wrong place back then, it was a mark and a half off.  So I learned the proper punctuation and spelling, and now text-speak is so confusing to me...
