My Life

My life may be an unquine one and is sometimes difficult one but it’s the only one I’ve ever known. Because of my learning disabilities and ADD I been treated differently my entire life, sometimes people have gotten along with me fine and have changed their pontion of me after learning about my disabilities despite what they learned earlier about me as a person this has happened to me even with teachers. Because of my experiences I’ve come to become someone who judges people for who they are not anything else. One of the unique things about me is that my education has been split into two different worlds entirely, while I am in R.S.P. I also am in AP courses and the schools paper, which sometimes collide with each other. Sometimes it is frustrating to enjoy certain conditions in my higher-level classes and have a great learning atmosphere sometimes I forget that I’m in my lower level classes and forget my place. Anyone who has spent as much time as I have observing these kids and their teachers will se that the teachers would l like to give the kids more leeway but know it wouldn’t work while the kids have been under the influences their entire life that they can do no better I hope that one day I can be open about my shortcomings without fear of discrimination.

I think you're lucky, I'd have loved to have that kind of class setup when I was in high school. I ended up just dropping out and getting my GED a few years later after I tested "post-high school" in everything exept math, which I have a disability in. And that I was at grade 12 level and I'm a grade 10 drop out<br />
I wish the problems caused by....my problems....had gone away out of school, but they're still keeping me from finding work<br />

They don't like to let people like us into the workforce in my experience, unless we have a degree

You sound very much like my son. School was more than a struggle for him. It was nightmarish. We ended up homeschooling him, which wasn't a perfect soliution either. But the good news is that now at 27 he is happily married. He has a good paying job that he loves. He has many close friends. He's the funniest person I know. And I can't think of anything I'd ever want to change about him.
