Did I spell it right? I constantly question the spelling to every word I write. Usually I misspell things and then good ole autocorrect helps me figure it out. Sometime's my disability is so bad that even autocorrect doesn't know what I'm trying to say. I've struggled with it my whole life and I'm tired of having my bad spelling hold me back.
I'm not stupid!
I've learned to stop beating myself up. It's hard not to feel stupid when you constantly have to ask people how to spell things. It's okay to ask, it's okay to be vulnerable. I've learned to wear my disability like a cape, it's kind of my super power.
Blame everything on being dyslexic! No one can call you out for not knowing things! Even if it's not related to dyslexia at all. Like what year it is.
When I feel frustrated with my dyslexia:
I didn't pick to have this disability.
There's nothing I can do!
Laugh at yourself for not knowing how to spell uncle.
Pull the dyslexia card 24/7.
It doesn't matter because autocorrect and google... we're in the future now baby.
