    Dyslexic fingers. It's no laughing matter. Mercifully my dyslexic fingers usually work well with my dyslexia addled brain.

    That's right, I said it. I try my darndest and again and again I get my letters backswards. Is it the keybaord or is ti my fingers whihc keep switching letters around like snowballs in a blizzard? Is it fair that words pour off the edge of the pages of books like bok choy falls off the edge of a toothpick?


    Oh the woeful shame of having to carry this stigmatizing burden.


    Go ahead and laugh if you want, just remember, it could happen to your mailman-then what'll you do?


    Anyone else here suffer from dyslexia?

    Yes, I've been suffering from dyslexia since as long as I can remember. Caused a lot of trouble for me in my elementary years.

    Attention Deficit Disorder here. I type in words sometimes that I did not think of when typing, and can also see words that are not there after typing. I always have to step away and look again at what I have written before submitting anything. Even then, sometimes, I find I have to go in again to edit.

    Ah, the joys of learning disabilities.
