Dyslexia Answered

I'm kinda dyslexic. Just thought I'd warn you all. I might get my words mixed up every now and then. Just for comparison, I'll write a sentence or two without fixing my mistakes: the quick breow2n fox jumped oner the laxy dog. hello, he name is YummyPancekes. I jknow that duslecia is where you get your works mixed up when you read, but it works the same for computer fetboards. So, me typing's kindas weird. Aorrt.

I have picked up some of the slang, but not the spelling. We have enough odd ball spellings in our country without adding random "u"s in some words :-)

No, I live in Pennsylvania (and always have), but have a close friend in the UK that I have spoken with for about 3+ years now. Vie hapt sie Pennsylvania Deutch to deal with. And that is confusing enough sometimes :-)

I bet you have a real love-hate relationship with spell-checkers!

We won't hold it against you, just watch out for sarcastic comments when the spelling gets really bad.

Normally, sets of the words/numbers get turned around, not whole sentences (although that CAN happen I suppose). I consistantly type out feild, knowing that it is spelled field.

Those of us that have the affliction or a similar manifestation of the affliction, tend not to "show off" their keyboards to people, because the "backspace key" is totally worn off form being used more then the spacebar *sigh*.

I know the feeling. I do so often but TRY to check my work and use a spell checker or two. But my numbers. ACK, I am more liable then not to transpose numbers......I "think" 12345 and I type 13255 It is VERY frustrating, I know.

And the thing is, there is no way to "spell check" one's number entries. But I know what you mean. We each have our own demons to deal with (so to speak)
