It started with words not meaning anything, even the simple words such as: can, use, you, if. To me they were just shapes and not letters, so they didn't have any purpose or meaning. It became very stressful to the point that i was ready to drop out of school and not bother ever turning up again. But I knew that wouldn't help. Luckily I had some great teachers that tried and are still trying to help me get through this tough stage. They have been doing things like, making the slideshows a certain colour to help me read it as well as printing handouts onto coloured paper. And it has helped a bit.
I did go to the opticians to see if my eyes were effecting anything, and it turns out they are also playing a part in why i have been struggling so much. Basically my eyes don't work together, only one eye works at a time meaning things become blurred. Its like winking and changing eyes very, very quickly.
So two weeks on and I am slowly starting to work out what words say and mean, I'm still not able to work out all the words i used to know but I'm getting there. But thinking of things to write and how to do certain things are still a struggle. To be honest writing this post has taken me a few days. It might take a few weeks or months for me to get back to normal but i will keep trying, even though i do occasionally feel like giving up.
