Hi everyone, I really value all of your open and honest comments. I took a Dyslexia Test 18 months ago, found out at the age of 49 years that I am dyslexic. I have been treated for depression for the past 30 years. Learned to read at age 11. Struggled at school, constantly bullied.
Depression and Dyslexia go hand in hand. I've struggled all my life, with learning difficulties, everything I have achieved, has taken tremendous effort, and this is emotionally draining. It's uplifting to know I am not alone! Yes we have all experienced more than our fair share of knock backs. "I believe that there is a genetic link to dyslexia." My father and brother, 'all though never tested', both showed signs of being severe dyslexics. Both men however are SO intelligent! They have fantastic memories, and are outstanding public speakers. My brothers art work, verges on genius! I believe Dyslexia is linked to intelligence. We dyslexics know how frustrating it is not to be able to get our points across, either written or verbally or BOTH! It is the world and not us who are missing out, as we are some of the most intellectual, peoples in this world. What we have to do, is learn to harness our individual talents. I keep trying to achieve the impossible. I am a natural artist, and must return to the paint brush. We all have individual talents. Value yourselves, and others will follow! I must learn to be my own best friend, so when depression comes knocking, I will be able to face it square in the face! And so can you!
