Dyslexia means a discomfort with words. Well I accept that of course it is exactly that, but doesn't it also mask the many other underlying problems with Dyslexics.
I am apparently "Severely Dyslexic" I don't however have great difficulties with reading or writing but it is a problem for me. Many of the other symptoms are far more pronounced in my case. I have been told a few times that I cant be Dyslexic because I don't write my letters backwards and I can read.
I find this very frustrating as to then try to explain my Dyslexia suddenly starts sounding like I'm trying to make excuses for my failings and im pretty sure that quite often people don't believe me.
