I have never been officially diagnosed, but I think I have it. My mother has it, I consistently am messing up b and d when writing and sometimes I forget to add in characters while I'm writing, sometimes thoughts come out backwards too. It's never been really bothersome, if anything I have a very mild case. It doesn't inhibit me ANY way... Except for being embarrassing when my thoughts come out flip flopped or I spell something totally wrong and A classmate is checking out my notes. If I have to hand write work I just need to pay a little more attention to what I'm doing.
Problem is... I REALLY feel like its gotten a lot worse!! I'm trying to write up my nursing care plan (i don't want to type it since its double the work) and I feel like there are cross outs EVERYWHERE. For example I was just trying to write magical. I wrote down mg, then I stopped and said to myself "you moron, you forgot the A!". Crossed it out and rewrote it. It's like I know what I'm saying and I'm perfectly capable of write it but there is a disconnect between my head and my hand!!
Very frustrating. Can this kind of "exacerbation" be from stress? Maybe its from to much writing on the computer? Maybe its to much fast sloppy writing (like when I'm taking notes in class, my handwriting has TANKED from just trying to get everything on the paper!)? Maybe I'm not focused enough?
Any thoughts on "retraining" myself?
Like I said, its more annoying to me then anything, and sometimes these little mistakes make me feel stupid. Other then that I'm a more then capable student, my average is 86-88 without applying myself. I could probably be a 90-95 student if I was as anal as some of classmates!
Thanks for reading!
