Marnie vs Marine
I was first diagnosed with dyslexia when I was in the third grade. I went to special classes in fourth and fifth grade to learn how to learn with dyslexia. It was a low point in college when I realized I would never "out grow" dyslexia; I was twenty before I realized I'd never "catch up" and be "normal."
I never, ever tell anyone at work I have dyslexia because I don't want it to be perceived as a weakness, an excuse, a crutch. But sometimes it gets to me.
Lucky for me, today The New York Times had an article by Annie Murphy Paul titled The Upside of Dyslexia
Thank you Annie Murphy Paul. I needed that.
