Anxiety and Dyslexia my struglse

Hi, I just found this and it seems really cool. I'm a 16-year-old boy who has severe dyslexia and anxiety which stopped me from attending school late year despite my perfected grades. I want to go to med school because I love science and the human body especially the brain because of my dyslexia and anxiety. I can barely read anything because of my dyslexia despite this I love English and am one of the smartest kids in my class I am a bit of perfectness and this website just seems like a really good outlet to claim my anxiety.

For someone with dyslexia you write well. How great to have goals, and I understand you are in good company like Einstein and Edison. I know others who have this.

That is okay. You have a lot of courage to vent about challenges. Have you ever read or heard about a book called The Short Bus by Jonathan Mooney? I highly recommend it. So many times we hear about teachers but you are here talking about the other side. Jonathan Mooney was someone who had academic challenges when he was growing up. Through meeting the right connection with someone who believed in him and set him on the right course he ends up getting an honors degree from Brown in English. I think he has even been on Tedtalks.
