    I always had a hard time with left

    and right, but when I joined the navy I had no problem with port and starboard, and is still easier to me than left and right

    I'm need some advice,

    so my friend and I just found out today that her sister thinks she is pregnant. Her sister is only 14 and has had unprotected sex four times in the last four weeks. She wants advice from me but she also wants me to keep it a secret. What should I tell her?

    I still use the trick of making the 'L' with

    your left hand to tell which way is left and which is right; and sometimes I still get it wrong.

    Strange! When I was young

    and being taught to write, I used to write with my left hand or my right hand. The schoolteacher would smack my hand with a ruler every time I was seen writing with my left. I am now right hand dominant, but can still sign my name with my left hand. I cannot use a fork in my...

    I've always had this problem.

    I have an excellent sense of direction (N,S, E, W) but have to pause and think about right left. At my wedding (25 years ago) the minister said "blah, blah, your right hand" and I put out my left hand! He then said " no, your OTHER right hand" and I've never lived that one...

    My door, your door. There are no right

    and left when I am driving, only "my door, your door". My friends and my son know this and I have trained them to say "my door, your door".

    Still to this day I confuse my left

    and right, I remind my self with looking at the back of my hands, fingers together and thumb held out. Your left hand makes a capital L. This came in use when my children were younger and they learnt. They no better than me now 😃

    I took ROTC for a year in College.

    We did a lot of marching. I HATED that. Getting "Right Face! Forward March!" correct had me scared every time. I know which is my left side; when I need to pick a "right" or "left" I will actually slap my left side so I can get my directions correct.

    and I just posted that it was my left. Don't ask me which one of my ears is bad, I've forgotten that. Was it my left because he was right-handed? Or was he left-handed? You can see how easily I am confused by this. All 'satire' aside, it is something I've never been able to...

    when the instructor is facing me and says Left I follow them without thinking my "left". I end up watching the people next to me that I'm following correctly.

    I hate it when people tel Me go left

    or go right. I simply don't know my left from right. It is a function of my dyslexia. I turn the wrong way all the time, even with a GPS telling me to turn left or turn right. Give me north, south, east or west and I do better.

    I Don't Confuse It

    When someone tells me "to the left!" I react accordingly. That's not it at all. It's more that I have difficulties finding the word quickly enough, comparable to amnesic aphasia. I find this quite entertaining when someone asks me for directions and I explain it to them: "you...
