I remember this recurring nightmare I had as a kid where these giant letters would fall on me and crush me. And to this day, I’m uncomfortable in libraries of anyplace where things are alphabetized in a certain order because I don’t really see the order.

I think being dyslexic also can be an asset in many ways…. It teaches you to really learn because you can’t memorize things. You have to understand them to get by.
