This is one of those things I’m curious about but I’m just not comfortable talking about with my friends or family. I don’t really have a reason why I feel this way it’s just how I feel.
Sometimes when I type a word it just looks wrong. I’m talking about common words people use every day. Most recently it happened with the word ‘their’ for some reason it just looks misspelled. I know it’s not and a few weeks ago it would have looked correct. Now when I use it I just want to double check it with a spell check program. I know it’s irrational but I can’t control how I feel.
About a year ago I had the same problem with the word ‘said’. I’ve kind of gotten past that one but I think I taught myself to just accept that it’s correct.
I wonder why it happens. Did a brain cell die? Did a whole bunch of brain cells die?
So I ask is this something that happens to everybody or is it just one more thing that makes me “special”?
