I’m unusual in that I have ‘Pure Dyscalculia’, meaning that my language ability is unimpaired. It’s more common to have both. I don’t feel bad about having a slight learning disability however, because I firmly believe in ‘neurodiversity,’ although there are some problems with defining what that actually means.

    Sadly I was born too late, to ride the fuck of the “dys” train 🙁

    When the fuck was that, and where ? 19 century, deep in Appalachian Mountains ?

    *Born too early.
    The “dys” train came too late.

    Well, my tea drinking lass, dig out the “Iron Lady”, and use her skull as a chamber pot.
    Or those who send you there.

    Shoes’ story is remarkably similar to my own, however; I can’t say that I’ve excelled at anything in my life. I too was going through school in the 80’s, and with my difficulties with reading and writing I was bounced from one special class to another. None of them helped. I made it through high school without ever hearing the word Dyslexia. It wasn’t until later in my life, when I went back to college that I finally got the help I needed, and was able to have a positive experience in school.

    I’m good with my hands.

    I like the sound of that.

    Leonardo da Vinci, Ansel Adams, Pablo Picasso, Steven Spielberg…looks like I’m in good company.

    Yeah, and vegetarians are in even better, and purer.
    Hell, even PETA could claim him as a “poster boy” (:D) for animal rights.
    Does that make being a vegetarian more, less good, valid ?
