He said it looks like I am moderately dyslexic. I need to go see a specialist. He was surprised no other doctors has noticed it in the past.
WTF! How old are you? 22? Hmm.. it is pretty late to come out of the closet... I guess.

Is it really that odd?
As I said earlier, my lab used to work on detecting dyslexia in newborns.

The reason for this is because.. after a certain age children take really really long time to learn new things. So... in order to treat dyslexia effectively.. it is essential to know a person has that condition, or not, beforehand.

If you have "severe" dyslexia.. it should be quite apparent by the time you reach the age of 5. I don't think you have to worry about it.. unless you are having a hard time reading books.. or writing horribly.

Right. Oh well. I struggled through school. Always hated it.

I'm doing much better in college because it's a lot more hands on. I really like this doctor. Great guy. Spent a while talking to me about it.

It's not severe by any means.

I also hate writing because I can't spell. So then I get distracted trying to fix it... which never works out.

Fucking hell
