This Is What It's Like to Have Dyslexia

It's not as simple as you think it is.

Just like having mental health illness, people who have dyslexia also find it hard to open up to others about their condition. They are embarrassed to admit that they have a learning disability for fear of getting judged or called names.

Contrary to what many people think, having dyslexia isn't just as simple as not being able to read correctly. It's a lot more complicated than that. For example, did you know that some people who have it also find it difficult to read numbers? Whether it's as simple as entering a PIN or as complex as writing digits on an Excel spreadsheet, dealing with numerals can also be a bit of a struggle.

Below are other serious struggles that dyslexic people have.
