Depression and Dyslexia

Postby xLilax » Wed Dec 30, 2015 9:30 pm

Wondering if there is anyone out there who deals with depression and dyslexia. I was diagnosed with dyslexia at a very young age, and depression when I was in middle school. I came across a book, "Dyslexia and Depression: the Hidden Sorrow" by: Neil Alexander-Passe, that got me thinking about how the two are correlated. Wondering if there is anyone else out there thinking, or feeling the same??

I have a friend with dyslexia and while he has not been diagnosed with depression I know he is depressed and unhappy a lot of the time. He seems to get more depressed when he talks about his difficulty with reading. The stigma about dyslexia bothers him, too. A lot of people think that dyslexia makes you less intelligent and he's had a really hard time with that. (He's pretty smart, too)
We talk a lot and I'm pretty sure he has depression, even if he doesn't admit it. It makes sense that depression and dyslexia would affect each other, too. How do you cope with this?

I've never been diagnosed with Dyslexia, but it's interesting how since my depression came about, there's been mild to extreme difficulty reading/writing/spelling at times. it doesn't always present itself, but I can completely butcher sentences without being aware.

There's no such thing as true good or true evil, its all relative to the observer.
