I have had so many problems getting through school and college!! But I think as a dyslexic person you have a drive in you that you have to prove to the world that they are wrong!!! I kinda feel that I wan't to just say F*** you all!!! To all my teachers who thought I wouldn't get anywhere especially my English and History teachers!!Who were to lazy to teach me! Even though I am in the 90% in comprehension and I had the general knowledge of a 17 year old when I was 8!! When I think about how stupid dyslexia makes me feel I do get feelings of depression and suicide!! I am 23!!! And i have felt like this since I was around 4 or 5!! It is a fright to god that the world does this to children!! Not only that but very bright children who really love learning but not in the same way that a verbal thinker does!! I hate the world for being so hard on me!! But I would never give up being a dyslexic!!! When you think about it verbal thinkers will never see the world in the same light that we do!! To a degree I feel sorry for them but I must admit life is so easy for them!! I don't think dyslexia is scientifically linked with depression but I think the difficulties related to dyslexia have a role to play in depression!! This website is so wonderful!! I thought I was all alone!! Thanks to who ever started it!!

Your doctor is wrong. I have dyslexia and depression. Dyslexia, as you probably know causes a lot of anxiety and that anxiety causes depression. Your doctor probably doesn't know enough about dyslexia. I know how frustrating it is but hang in there, you are not alone.

No-one knows nor understands what lies within.Within a confused state of mind of a Dyslexic mind, Anxiety and Depression sets in.Trapped within,where is the help,or hope and understanding to set them free, with all directions seemingly coming to a dead end/ is all lost?

Robert,
I know what you mean, sometimes it seems like why keep trying. Lately, I have just been saying hey I'm dyslexic,
my spelling is terrible or I don't remember. I try to laugh it off with other people but, be honest at the same time. Sometimes, my significant other and I laugh about the "first kiss", because my memory is so bad, I forget a lot of what we have done together. So, we tease each other when we kiss sometimes and pretend it is the first kiss.
It helps, but, it still is terribly hard, especially at work.
No one is going to really understand unless they are dyslexic. That is way I appreciate this web site so much!
Kim

I believe that depression and dyslexia can go hand in hand. It is very difficult at times to cope with Dyslexia. Thank you for the post.
What is Dyslexia
