Are You Dyslexic Too?

Ask a Question

If you which type of dyslexia you have and what's your biggest struggle in life.

Mine is writing although this new technology phones help a lot and made my life much easier but still sometimes I take 10 minutes to write a simple sentence.

I’m also dyslexic can be very embarrassing when your mistakes get pointed out to you I really struggled in school teachers calling out my many mistakes thought i was just stupid did not get diagnosed until I was doing tests for health and safety the examiner advised me to get checked it was a relief knowing there was a reason for it

I’m dyslexic also and luckily got diagnosed in secondary school, I used to be so embarrassed by it but now im proud to be as most intelligent people have/had dyslexia I.e Richard Branson, Steve jobs, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein to name a few. We all think out the box.

I never let anyone to tell me otherwise, I know I did my best and if someone is not happy with my work they can do it themselves.

How do you get tested later in life? I’ve always had a feeling I might be and wanted to find out as I find certain things. Writing, reading quite difficult.

Ask your GP please, they should be able to refer you for a test, some people do online as well but I am sure about that.
