Lightbulb Do these symptoms indicate dyslexia or ADD?

As a child:
1. Problem reading says text moves, paragraph moves, lines move.
2. Very bad handwriting.
3. Difficulty learning tables.
4. Very weak in calculations.
5. Poor Spelling.
6. Very Naughty.
7. Very quiet.
8. Poor Eyesight.
9. Was always opening things to see how they work. Ex. opening electronic gadgets.
10. Highly unorganized.
11. Very poor at academics.

As an adult:
1. Much of the child symptoms have gone.
2. Highly Determined.
3. Highly Creative.
4. Over Achiever.
5. Erratic behaviour.(Sometimes)
6. Lonely.
7. Hides problems.
8. Reading problems though less often.
9. Spelling Mistakes.
10. Low self esteem.(Sometimes)
11. Does not know how to talk on phone, to people. Does not know what to say.

What I think is that he is not dyslexic or ADD, instead he is just careless. But could it be dyslexia or ADD.

Re: Do these symptoms indicate dyslexia or ADD?


ADHD or Dyslexia? I'm going with ADHD and dyslexia. Both? Yes. Rarely does anyone experience one brain bug. Our brains are highly stacked. Low level bugs show up in many forms at the top - our conscious level.

The differences between me and you are showing up on the top of the stack. I can't keep my mouth shut. I much rather talk face to face than over the blower or the net. I do not experience movement text or graphics.

Please see a good brain debugger - a psychiatrist. Some of them, at least, are no longer shrinks. Try your best not to see a shrink. Brains cannot be compressed like bitmaps. Squished without an unsquished algorithm sucks.

Am I nuts? Absolutely. And proud of it. My self-esteem is restored.
