Sometimes I read and sometimes I “read.”
We ADDers have an increased incidence of dyslexia. Both ADD ADHD and dyslexia result from faulty brain wiring. Do I have dyslexia? A lot of times I get numbers or letters transposed. If I write down a phone number, I need a strategy – check again to see if I got it right, then check one more time to see if I can read it.
Also in my appointment book – I’m working on making sure that what I write is legible. Otherwise on Thursday I’ll spend half the day worrying about – 1:00 Ghdllsqs. Unless my wife can figure it out for me.
But I’ve always read a lot and enjoy it. I’m a good reader. But sometimes I “read.”
Recently I wanted to buy a small edition of the new DSMV. I looked it up on the net and found one – except the description didn’t sound quite right. I was in a hurry and I was “reading” it, skimming over it. I do that a lot with things I’m not real interested in, especially if they’re long. I just “read” it and I didn’t listen to the little voice -“You need to check it again before you order it.”
It came. It wasn’t at all what I wanted.
I learn the same lesson over and over – “Listen to the little voice!”
