Everyone on my Dad's side of the family is dyslexic. Severely so in most cases, male and female alike- to the point where it impacts both daily life and their ability to function. I have never been diagnosed, but believe that my strong drive to read as a child helped me overcome it significantly. Now, I still can't write, spell, or read aloud properly. Bgdpy are all the same **** letter so far as I am concerned most of the time (handwritten or on a keyboard), I start words somewhere (anywhere) in the middle half the time, and the drug names I have to know for work are a constant challenge as one syllable or even letter can make all the difference, but it works out. I say things flip flopped as well- is that part of it? To compensate, I avoid writing by hand as much as possible (thank god for spellcheck!). The way I figure it, we've all got issues, I'm no different, best to just figure out what workarounds work for me and drive on.
