They Don’t Know What LD is

Other, CA
I found out I was LD at the age of 13. Until then, I didn’t know why I couldn’t understand the teacher or what they wrote on the board. After that, I went to a special-ed school with all the other kids with special needs which was comforting because I didn’t feel left out or need to hide about LD. Two years later, I went to an American school and when everyone got high scores in tests or exams, I knew mine were low but I hid it from everyone else. Even now, I’m studying at UNI and when I tell my friends about LD they’re all clueless and haven’t heard of it before. At least they listened but they don’t really care that I have LD. Not one have I not seen an LD person like me at UNI. It makes me feel I’m stupid because I got into UNI with help and most people don’t need help unlike me.
