“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
By the time I discovered I was dyslexic, I'd already lost my job several times. I'd sort of known about it at school but just thought that being dyslexic meant being in the bottom group for spelling at school, having terrible handwriting and reading slowly.
Then one day, I realised that was true. Being dyslexic permeates into every aspect of your live; it's who you are, how you see things, how you work and relate to people both in your personal and professional life.
And I mean that in a good way. Releasing I was dyslexic was one of the best things to ever happen to mean. But I have to admit it was a bit of a rocky road getting here. But now I know dyslexia isn't so much a problem and more a kind of superpower.
I only discovered I was dyslexic last year and since then I've been reading everything I could about it. Now I want to bring together a community of dyslexics who want to share their stories both online and off.
Despite words and writing being against us, lots of dyslexics enjoy writing, some are even really good at it too.
If you'd like to share your dyslexic memories with us, please get in touch.
