After being diagnosised as being highly dyslexic at the end of Oct 07 I somehow have found the strength to finally believe in myself and my ability to do well in life. I have no idea where this new found confidence has come from. All I know is that I'm feeling more confident and focused than I have ever felt in my life. I still have doubts from time to time which I'm sure will continue but I'm learning how to deal with life's challenges more rather than sweep them under the carpet and not deal with them at all. This may have something to do with actually knowing now what is wrong with me after years of believing I was simply just thick and stupid. You see I have gone through my entire life so far thinking this because no one picked up on my problems back in school. I am now almost 40 years old now and I have realised that it is never to late to still learn. I know go to college one night a week for 2 hours to help improve my basic adults education. I have almost completed a level one intermediate course in communication, all that is left for me to do is a 5 minute talk on a subject of my choice. I think I'm am still holding back on this due to lack of confidence still. I have however already started work on the numbers side of things just last week. A very weak area for me but I know I can do this and will. I think I can honest say that I no longer look at things I'm faced with and think oh my god I just cant do it, I just take it slowly and think things through, never being afraid anymore to ask for help if I need it. I also find it very rewarding now to help others with their problems no matter what they may be. The DS site has been my back bone in all of this. I have made so many friends since joining last year and I love them all for their support, laugher and genuine words of comfort during my good and bad times. I am here to help anyone whenever they may need me, no matter what the issue I will also speak from the heart and be honest. God bless you xx
