Dyslexia and ADHD
Posted 6/29/08 , edited 6/30/08
Dyslexia is a learning disabilities that affect many people all over the world,
many people mistake it as stupidity when they can not read or write properly,
there is more information on the link I provided

http://www.ldonline.org/article/24160

But dyslexia is also associated with
ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)

This is a condition is a chemical imbalance in the brain which makes the suffer extremely high, unable to focus or pay attention many people assume that they are crazy

http://www.ldonline.org/article/24162

Many people have negative stereotypes on people who suffer from both these conditions, what is your opinion on them and do you know anyone who suffers from these conditions

EDIT
These conditions are treatable with help take for example the amount of famous people who have conquered it:
Orlando Bloom
Salyma Hayek
Cher
Robin william

I am not dyslexic, but my brother has scotopic syndrome (A form of dyslexia) I am not fully educated on it, what it is a condition where the brain doesn't perceive letters well. He has specially tinted glasses and overlays that he can use that make the letters look normal to him (Idk why, but color affects it) Now he has learned to live with it, and can read without the glasses and overlays.

Seriously though, I'm just told I have these things, the symptoms fit me, but I mean both are hard to notice out and about. i don;'t suddenly lose track of consciousness during a heavy task at work, jump into hysterical fits and say "That;s the ADHD that is". xP

A good cure for both of these "conditions" is a good ass kicking.
