– So, I have dyslexia, and it’s been
something that I’m kinda embarrassed about.
What it’s like to have dyslexia
It makes little things sort of difficult,
like entering in phone numbers,
I always mix up the numbers.
– One, two, seven, two.
– 好了- 5
– Okay. – Five.
Just, can you?
– 好吧 呃 不行
– Yeah, just, no.
– I literally have to separate the numbers by three
and highlight them if I’m on a computer
and enter them in separately.
Anything involving numbers is really difficult.
Excel spreadsheets, the SAT, literally
I started filling in the bubbles on the wrong line
and had to erase all of them and start over,
and I completely messed up that section.
Another really weird thing, Captcha, I cannot do that.
I have to do the auditory thing.
If you have dyslexia reading is really hard.
It gives you headaches, the lines are really hard to see,
word placement jumps around,
and letter placement jumps around.
Spelling is also a struggle.
Sometimes I misspell words so badly
that even AutoCorrect can’t tell
what I’m trying to say.
For me it’s hard to talk about having dyslexia,
but the more that I’ve been open with people
the more understanding they’ve been,
and it’s helped me go a little bit easier on myself.
