Hi I am 16. I have got dyslexia. I was tested for dyslexia when I was 9! I find it hard living with dyslexia. As my exams are coming up in a couple of months I have been really depressed and feel hopeless. I just keep crying and not wanting to study. Sometimes I feel that on one understands what it's like to grow up with dyslexia and reading these comments make me feel better because it is a common thing. I want to tell people like family and friends how I feel but I feel they won't understand. When I am older I want to work with children who have dyslexia not only help them but support them and hopefully make them confidened.

I am 44yrs old. I graduated from college and am an occupational therapist. When I think back on my education I cry because it was so challenging. I definitely feel that depression runs hand in hand with dyslexia. I do however believe that to some degree dyslexia is a gift. It is however difficult in this world to see the world differently then others. I feel like I can somehow manage what's on my plate. I however was so sad to realize that my son is also dyslexic. I know the mountain that stands in front of him. I watch him for any signs of depression and anxiety and will not hesitate to get him help.
