Diagnosed at 40

My mother and I cried when I was diagnosed.

Her, because she had punished me my whole life for “not trying”, being hyper, etc.

Me, relief; I had tried, wish I could tell all my tutors, teachers of every course tried. I’m 68 now and it’s debilitating.

I’m on medication but I still struggle every day. Last week I found out I also have Dyscalulia. Again, relief, but a lifetime of failure; jobs, relationships, computer courses. I pray that now 2021 there is help available. But to find that specialized type for yourself is almost impossible. The majority of Drs. I think, just do not want to take the time to deal with it and definitely do not understand it. God Bless to us all.
