Hey Joan,

I don't think dyslexia and depression are directly linked but I do think dyslexic people have a higher possibility of becoming depressed.

After reading through the messageboard it seems like everyone on here has gone through very similar experiences.

I found out I was dyslexic at the age of eight, I had the most supportive parents in the world. My mother worried sick about me 24 seven, and was constantly looking for a cure. It would be very hard for anyone not to get down and depressed when everyone in the class can read and you're struggling with the very basics.

I have struggled on my dyslexia and carved out a pretty successful career as a photographer but there are days that I will hide from the world! I think the hardest thing about dyslexia is people just don't understand, people think you're even stupid or lazy or both it really is the invisible disability which people choose to not understand and just think you're stupid.

I'm currently living in Spain trying to learn Spanish, WOW it's so hard and my new saying is you have to laugh at yourself or you cry.

I want to thank everyone for sharing there thoughts on this blog. I was really great for me to read and helps me see I'm not alone.

Sam
