    I just wanted everyone to know that I have severe dyslexia. I know some of you have noticed my posts being edited a lot and I have been called out on some typos. There have been many times that I read a post the will say "Silly chickens" and I think it says "Silkie Chickens". I see words backwards or letters in different order then "normal" people see them. It has been getting worst as I get older. It has haunted me my whole life and caused me to do very bad in school as a child. I've been made fun of for most of my life because of it.

    Here's some info on it:


    From what I hear Tom Cruise has it too. [​IMG]

    I just wanted everyone to know why I can't seem to type/see/say things correctly.

    Quote:See that's why I even said anything about it. I made on thread about moonshine and everyone thinks my disorder is caused by shine. I was diagnosed with dyslexia when I was 9 years old. It is not caused by drinking! I just thought I would let everyone know why I can't post a normal post with words spelled right and so people don't think that I'm some drunk typing stuff that doesn't make since. I'm just a regular person with a learning disability and I can't help it.

    Me too. Diagnosed when I was a freshman in high school. Sucks people just think you are stupid. I graduated 9th in my class!

    It really effects me most when I am tired. I can't drive with the radio on as it effects my concentration.

    BUT I'm not as bad as some people. I know one guy that saw everything upside down!!!

    Quote:Thank you! I once quit a job because my boss kept telling me that I needed to TRY and see things correctly. No matter how much I TRY I can't fix it. He told me it was all in my head and that I needed to FIX IT because it was making him mad that I had to may typos in my work. It's not that I don't proof read what I type, I do. It just looks right to me when I reread it.

    Edited to add: I don't see things upside down, I see them backwards. I don't see 123 I see 321. Or I see them all messed up like, 231. I can't help it. My older brother is A.D.D. Now that was terrible on my parents, 2 kids with issues.

    Wow- that must be really hard. I'm glad you were diagnosed early instead of going through life thinking you're "stupid". You're not stupid! [​IMG] We love ya!
    Hey, and there's nothing wrong with letting your hair down and getting out the shine, either! I'm right there with you. We're young, no kids... Gotta do it while we still can. [​IMG]
