Yeah, I have ADHD so I find it hard to concentrate on anything for more than 5 minutes unless im enjoying it.

I also have a few other things here and there that compound it, OCD which makes me get really finicky when writing stuff (if I didn't word it properly ill erase a few sentences for some reason and re-write them.

I wasn't really bullied per-say about my learning disability; I was however often ostracized because of my severe social anxiety that made it hard to talk to people. I was often thought of as some weird guy no one wanted to talk to; Which got better in my later years when I became good friends with one of the only gay guys in school who was also going through stuff (for obvious reasons).

I grew up in the Bahamas which is pretty shitty place to live if your not "normal" (im using that term because there is no better way to put it).

I think I overcame it by just not caring lol. I know that sounds a bit cliche, but I just enjoyed my time by myself. I watched anime and read manga and did what ever I enjoyed and all my problems seemed to take a back seat.

I was told that I have dyslexia. I never noticed I had it to be honest, it did not affect my my grades or the classes I took.

I had a hard time in art classes and some science classes, because of slight colorblindness.

I never really got bullied for it though, people just aked me if it was like seeing in black and white (it's not) or how it differs from normal people's color vision. (which I can't explain because I'd have to be not colorblind to know the difference)

I'm pretty sure I had some kind of attention deficit disorder. My mom figured that locking me in the basement would solve the problem. It was a horrifying experience.

I'm not too sure really, I don't believe that I've ever been even in the slightest bit dyslexic or dispraxic

I have OCD, as a result I tend to be late to everything. And I mean everything.... you name the time and place and I'm at least 20-30 minutes late

I suppose I had one, depending on how you look at it. when I was in elementary school, I had really sensitive hearing... to the point where I couldn't enjoy music or walk into the lunchroom in school. It didn't exactly effect my learning, but school life instead. Eventually I learned how to deal with it and it doesn't effect me anymore... However I notice that I still watch my TV on single digit volume, and my computer rarely higher than 16/100 volume. :mellow:

Yep. I was emotionally handicapped. Basically I would get too emotional about things. I'm over that now, I think.... Don't judge me!

All the way into elementary school, teachers thought something was wrong with me because I wouldn't talk to anyone, like not more than a few words. Even in middle school and high school, I would only talk to a select few people. Its actually kind of funny because between working at a grocery store for 7 years and going through college for architecture(various presentations, interaction is also a must), I'm comfortable talking to practically anyone now.

I have ADHD and dyslexia (plus a few others however those are mental). .....Not a very good combination at all. Pretty much suched since in in elementary, my teachers would often roll their eyes when I would try to concentrate on reading and then get side track or looking at any of my papers. I was made fun of it in earlier years when I was a kid but after I went to a school that works with children with dyslexia, I seemed to be working a little better with it.

Sigh. When you get older not many people are comfortable knowing or hearing about it or end up shunning you once they know you have it. Which is understandable because they aren't used to knowing about it but ah well.

When I was ~3-4 years old my mom noticed I hadn't started talking like most children would so she took me to therapy to fix it.

If depression counts then yes. It was certainly hard for me to learn when I was in that stage of my life.
