    I am dyslexic and I was tested when I was in grade school. I was summerily put into a special education class and passed from one grade to the next with little to no help. I had one teacher take away my spelling book. When i asked why I was informed that I was not aduquleity comperhending the subject of spelling and thus had no need for the book. It could not be used to help another student who would gain from having it. In short I was told that I was too stupid to use the book because i was having difficulity in spelling. What good did any of the classes do me? Really? I can not do more then the most basic of math without a calculator so math is a none starter. I have spent my life hiding my Dyslexia for a good reason, no one cares and no one is going to help you anyway. All that testing dose is reconfirm what I alreayd know. I am not and never will be good enough. Why should I share that with the rest of the world? Why should i endure any more open diresstion on the part of all the “normal” people that can do multiplacations and and algerbra? Why should I give the normal people one more advantage over me? If i hide it and use some of the tricks I have learned over the years to help me I can get my next raise, advancemt. That won’t happen if the boss knows I am stupid. What boos in their right mind wants to spend extra resources on me when he can permoat the smart guy/lady standing next to me that dose not need the extra help? No one can show me why I should display my shame on the public stage and endure the shame of it all for no reason or benifit to myslef. I am tired of being the zoo animal on dsiplay for the amusment of others. Am I angry? Yeah I am. I tired of working harder to prove that I can do some many things that others can’t but it don’t matter because I cant spell well and i can not do math well. Because i am so dumb that right and left do not exist for me at all. I can not read a map and E,S,N,W are meaningless to me. You peole want me to get tested again so that my stupidity can be made officail…again? NO THANK YOU!
