I'm not sure how to start, school was an unpleasant experience and my parents spent a great deal of money sending me to extra lessons for reading and later French. I have had dunces hat put on my head, teaches making me read because they new it would be entertaining for the rest of the class, stopped from doing the levels of study because I could not write well enough to in my final year when asked by my English teacher what I was planning on doing next year. To which I replied study Physicology , she laughed and said I was so dumb I would not even matriculate.
I did not discover until I was 53 that most people did not see the printed word As I did with every letter having an after image. I now at 56 with clinical depression am trying to come to terms with my past. This year I have completed 2 writing course and yes I still have my spelling and reading problems, but I have discovered that I can write and with this new released ability I am writing some children's stories where because of a difficulty or two the child has gained worthy gifts that they might not have had otherwise, I hope these stories might bring some hope to others.

Hey Anita thanks for sharing.... all these stories all seem so similar and its nice to read them because I'm sure we all feel we are alone in this. I to hated school and was picked on from a very young age, I'm now 33 and Photographer my Dyslexia has cost me a few jobs at newspapers getting the names wrong ect very hard to handle as I'm a very good photographer its just all the other stuff I can't do. I'm living in Spain now and trying to learn Spanish and let me say it is very hard to stay positive but we can do anything we want it just takes long than others.
