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.

I am one of the children of the 60's. When in school my teachers told my parents that I was very smart but lazy. I was not lazy I just didn't get what the were selling. A few years ago I took an IQ test and scored in the 130's, not bad,whoever life is not easy. Every day is a struggle to stay alive and function. In 2004 I finally was tested. My results were shattering. Not only do Ideal with depression, I also have dyslexia and adult ADHD. I tell people who complain about me at work to "spend 24 hours in my head and see what it is like." Not know where your keys or wallet is, telling yourself you are worthless. People remark to me that they have the same syndrome. When I ask if they have been tested they say no but i have it. If you have not been tested never make that statement. It is hard day after day thoughts of killing oneself has entered my mind. Loss of ambition, not smiling or laughing. It is no joke. However my supervisor does not believe these things are real. So my mistakes add up and I feel helpless. That os just a bit of my story. Thank you for listening.
