It sounds like to me that you have a very supportive family to help you.
I would suggest that you go back to university and carry on your studies. The only thing you have to do before you join a university visit them and ask them about the support they can give you if they cannot give you the support that you need look for another university. The best people to speak to at the University of the student advisers. These people are the people that will be helping you when you need it the most. I know this because this is what my daughter does for a living.
Like you I have severe dyslexia on like you I did not find out to much later in life. Like you I get very frustrated with the other people who generally think just because I cannot read and write like they do I must be thick how wrong they are. As you can see there are no spelling mistakes on this message to you. That is because I use computer software I use naturally speaking Dragon version 11.5 at the moment when the new version comes out I shall probably upgrade again. When you talk to these people who think you are thick and tell them that you use computer software to do things that they cannot do they do not know that this sort of software exists.
So good luck to you by hope your life can change for the better never give up hope.
There are plenty of famous people out there who have dyslexia and not very successful in life they surround themselves with people to do the reading and writing for them but they are still overall in charge of their business. Richard Branson Whoopi Goldberg Jackie Stewart Jamie Oliver and countless others are all dyslexic. So if they can be successful so can you.

Your history is very similar to mi own. You have your parentīs economical support but have to fight everyday to find out wich is your place in this world. I can see you have strong will, as most of us do. I can tell you I have a Fine Arts college degree; But I am actually working in the family bussines because when I got into the workerīs world I just didnīt fit anywhere. I am 36 years old now and I star accepting myself the way I am. Now I relize I am a lot wiser than many people around me who are not dyslexic and I have become conscient of the gift or positive side of my different brain wiring. Even this I can tell you that going to college has not made me be happier: Find something you relly like and you will succeed. I understand now many things of my life in a different way, but I must confess that sometimes I have thought of suicide: Mainly because of the lack of emotional understanding or empathy from my parents and other people more than because of academycal results. Websides like this make me feel I am not alone and there are more people out there who can really understand me. Just one more point: As many people may think you are slow-minded, not intelligent or dispraxic, it gives you a clear advantage towards others: Use this in your own benefit ;-D
