There is a teeny weeny connection missing in my brain. It does not cause me undue stress in my everyday life, I have learned to live with it and in certain circumstances to hide it from those around me.
It is called typo-dyspraxlexia (typorus dyspraxlexium) and therefore I am typo-dyspraxlexic.
I have suffered with it for a long time and perhaps getting it down on paper will help to ease the symptoms.
I cannot type 'and' , well I did it that time because I had to think about it, and look there's another one - 'think', only right because I had to go back and correct it.
nad = and
thnk = think
becoame = become
And there are others, many others, if truth be told. The information that leaves my brain gets somehow shoved up a railway siding before it reaches my fingers.
That is what the experts say but I am inclined to think that since I have been writing my fingers have developed little brains of their own. Oh yes, they work in conjunction with each other, it takes two to mess up an 'and' and the little buggers have a riot with 'tomorrow' - which usually comes out as 'tommmorrow'.
I know my symptoms get worse when I am tired or have an attack of 'must get this down before I lose it' but please, tell me I'm not alone.
Are there other sufferers out there, can we form a Typo-dyspaxlexia-not-so-annonymous club. I would feel so much better.
