It's not hogwash my friend. Here's what depression is...it's when you have a problem no one has the answer to. It's needing to make a change in your life but you don't know where to start since the problem seems so big.

And, truly, the only way out of depression is we just get sick and tired of being depressed. One day you will look back and the depression will be gone. If you take note, you will see that your life did change. You do have an aspect of dyslexia for certain. The problem for you is identifying with others of your kind and those who understand you. There is plenty of info out there. Try Children of the Code website as a beginning, plenty of access there to more information.

Once you become aware of others who struggle with what you have, your depression will lift and you will be able to achieve greater confidence and self-esteem, maybe drive less and certainly not take much crap from people. The more you learn about your "challenge" and how common it is, the more your friends and family will know and become more tolerant to.

Check my site, go to 'links' and check out some the websites! And have a most excellent day! www.gabbyswordspeller.com

Thank you so much for posting this. I'm into my first month in collage I feel completely overcome by depression. I think im a smart person and im working so hard ever single day and nothing shows. I'm getting %50 in tests that i have spent days on end studying for.When i get then back teachers have written rude and unnecessary comments on them implying that and stupid and not trying hard enough.

before high school i was tested and it was discovered that i was dyslexic, but because that was over 5 years ago, the test has "expired" and im on the waiting list to get it again...therefore none of my teachers can legally mark my work any differentially.

Thanks again to everyone who has posted!
