Dyslexia and ADHD

By: Anna, Age 13, Marietta, Georgia

Who am I? I am a girly-girl. I love makeup. I am a Christian. I am dyslexic. I have ADHD. I am a girl that just want to be normal. I am a human being.

I have always been bad at reading, spelling, paying attention, and I was always the class clown because it was a way to let energy out. I was always bullied, even yesterday because I forgot how to spell solid. And what teachers and parents tell you is to let it slide down your back, but sometimes you can't. Sometimes it hurts so much that you want to crawl into a ball and cry. The one thing I always tell myself is "HEY! YOU! Yeah, you. Stand up for yourself! Put on a brave face and tell them to stop." Because one thing I learned, and am still learning, is that I am always improving. Even when I go down hill, I am still improving. Even if I fail math class while I'm at it.

The one thing I want you to remember is that even though you're a day dreamer, even though if you like me and see a Greek alphabet when you look at a book, YOU ARE IMPROVING!!! Be strong! You are all beautiful! God loves you!
