Question Any One Else With ADD & DYSLEXIA???

I grew up with BOTH ADD & Dyslexia. I had such a difficult time through school. But I made it. My biggest test/challenge came in 1984 when I went through the Fire Academy to become a Firefighter/EMT. I WANTED this job. I had to work very hard to concentrate on my studies. Trying to sit still long enough to finish even one chapter. Or to read my books and interpret what I've just read Correctly. Hands On skills training was great. No problem there. The written test however, nearly took their toll on me.
I am happy to say, I'm just short of 19 years with the Fire Dept.
Just curious if any one has had to deal with this.

I have ADD and "mild dyslexia".
Not quite sure what they mean by this, other than the fact that it's mostly I have problems with switching numbers around and reversing 1 or 2 letters in a word when writing it.
