Are you dyslexic? I ask, because I really feel for people who genuinely have this learning disability. I can't begin to imagine how confusing it must be, and how hard it must be to over come severe dyslexia. However, I feel that it is now being used as an excuse by an alarming number of people (In the UK anyway) who just can't spell. When I was at school, a few people I knew genuinely suffered from it, and found spelling and in some cases numbers very hard. But now every second new person I meet is dyslexic, has mild dyslexia or has something related to it. I don't suffer from it at all, but I certainly have noticed that it is being used almost as a scape goat for stupid people, rather than admitting they can't spell they say 'Oh, I'm dyslexic.' So I would like to hear what genuine suffers feel about this.
