Could I possibly be dyslexic...without knowing it?
Could I be dyslexic?
I’ve never thought of this but lately I’ve been messing up my words a lot.
I was writing something online and I knew I had to write “Purse Forum” but instead wrote “Furse Porum”...... Then I stopped to think about it and rewrote it while thinking what the heck is going on with me lately?
I also mess up words like, instead of saying “Abominable Snowman” I said “Abdominal Snowman…” Funny I know…. Me and my boyfriend laughed but I don’t know why I said this incorrectly. I don’t know why I said abdominal instead of abominable.
I also can’t remember about grammar or what goes where… I’ve never ever been like this in my life. My spelling is not good, or grammar, and I mix words…
This has been going on for the last 6 months. I am 23 years old and throughout my life have always spelled things correctly and never messed up my words.
I have absolutely no idea why lately I do not know how to spell words, why I mix up words, or why I wrote “Furse Porum” instead of “Purse Forum”......
My spelling has gone down the drain too and I find myself constantly looking up words before I spell them. This really frightens me and is hurting my ego very much.
When I told my boyfriend about the “Purse Forum/Furse Porum” incident he said I might be dyslexic.
I don’t know what to do and feel really concerned. Even 2 years ago I was not this way…. In High School I had a HUGE book collection and had very good public speaking skills…
Can anyone let me know if these are signs of dyslexia? Or perhaps something else? Thank you so much…..
