Not Slow On Purpose. :)

I got diagnosised with dyslexia today. I've always had extra time in exams because I just can't think fast enough, they call it a low processing speed but the exam boards are really cracking down on people who get extra time so I had to go through a proper assessment which was only meant to take 4 hours but I took 6! I randomly forget words when I'm speaking like all the time so I have to try and rearrange what I'm trying to say. I have a picture memory and I'm really bright but I can't sound out words and I'm terrible with verbal instructions unless you wanna sit and repeat them a few hundred times. I just mess up sounds alll the time and mispronounce words a lot.
