Don't feel like you have to be like everyone else. I'm slightly dyslexic (or more precisely, dysgraphic; I have problems writing, but not reading). God made us this way to teach us something, and to trust him in the midst of our weaknesses.
We shouldn't think we're less valuable because there are some things we can't do very well. I'm sure there are some things you do very well. For example, you express yourself more clearly than many people do on EduQnA.com--And that's with writing. So I imagine you can communicate pretty well verbally. That's a good gift to have. Thank God for it.
I know how you feel. I spell how the word sounds and it's most always wrong. and I switch numbers around. I also can't multiply at all.
It makes being In college rough.
I've never had trouble reading though, I'm most always far ahead in my class in that area. to find out for sure...ask your normal doctor or reasearch more online. it seems to be impairing your school life so you should definitly try to find out more, but EduQnA.com isnt exactly going to work miracles I don't think you're dyslexic, many people struggle with the reversal of b's and d's, and the others are perfectly normal. You might have a very slight case of it, but if you do, it's not very bad. Well your problem is a problem and you need some one to help, like some home tutor. Well my sis is sort of dyslexic too but I have heard that some of the famous scientists were dyslexic, so dont worry its not something u shud worry about, dyslexic ppl develop their interests in certain felid and then they go for it hard and do really well. The term Dyslexia covers a wide range of problems but I would say that you are dyslexic, and that a lot of your problems are down to pattern recognition. Dyslexia is not a real problem as long as it is diagnosed and you find how to work around it.
An important immediate step is to ask your school, or arrange privately, to have an assessment by an Educational Psyhcologist who will be able to assess the extent and type of your dyslexia. Their report will give you evidence to use at school so that the Special Needs provision can be made for you (such things as being given bulleted synopsis of lessons, help to draw mind maps and lots of other things - including additional reading time for exams.
I struggled for years undiagnosed until I was 30, this has liberated me and I have achieved a lot since as I now know what my real strengths are and how to make allowance for my weaknesses.
If your home country has Disability Discrimination laws in place (like UK and US do) then you are well on the way to being helped.
Don't be afraid to discuss your problems, and needs - remember you are not thick, stupid, slow or what ever - you have a special need if you are to achieve, but achieve you will.
Find your dyslexia support organisations, contact them, find out how you learn best and exploit this. My dyslexia (which doesn't sound that different to yours) enables me to take dissparate pieces of information and weave them into new arguments but in very plain language that lots of people can understand.
Good luck - but you must seen and Ed Psyhciatrist ASAP, the sooner you find out what you have problems with, the sooner you can start working out how to get round it.
I struggled academically for years - I now have a teaching degree, a degree in psychology and a Masters Degree - not bad for someone who was labelled "thick!".
