Well I do still jumble up words. Most times I'll nail a sentence, and you're right I don't need to re-read those, but one out of nine times I will
misread a sentence or will see letters/numbers where they shouldn't be.
"Jim came home from work exhausted, opened the fridge, and pulled out a beer."
how I might've read that.
"Jim cema from home exhaustad, open the pulled fridge out a baar."
[the "a" = an upside "e" and vice versa in that second sentence]
As I've gotten older, I've gotten better, but it still exists. More so with math equations or something like that where you have a mixture of both
letters and numbers in no linguistical order very close together. With practice I'm sure I can improve further, but seeing that I'm still above
average is a bit of a bittersweet victory.
I didn't see your second post when I responded.
There isn't any sense of anxiety. I generally approach it as a chore, like taking out the trash; it isn't fun, but it needs to be done for
The funny part is I have a really active imagination, and my friends and family have told me that I should be a writer, or at the very least a
screenwriter. So for the past year or two I've been putting together notes for a screenplay. I'm sure I won't be the first dyslexic writer in
history, or the last, but it is a change in direction from my painting.
