For most of my younger life i let my dyslexia beat me and never even attempted reading. I was behind in my scheduled reading in school, and once secondary school hit i could get away with my inability to read an actual book cover to cover. I’m not saying this is the right way to do it, but it’s the way i did it.
I’m dyslexic. I don’t know how many people knew that about me that read this blog, but i’m not overly shy about the fact that i struggle with words and numbers (dyscalculia). In fact, when i was younger, i really struggled with reading anything above the reading age of six or seven. So this is why i feel like i missed out.
