I’ve followed blogs for about a year before I got up the nerve to try myself. I wanted the connection with other people since I am house bound guite a bit due to health issues. I loved reading all the wonderful stories about different lives and and dream’s, and the beautiful poems of others. I saw so much talent and longed to be such a writer, but alas that is only a pipe dream I’ve had for years. Some things in life we just have to accept. I looked at the blogs about bipolar because I have had this since childhood, I followed blogs about fibromyalisa since I had it for years too. And I found many friends in the process to help with my loneliness. But I haven’t found any with blogs about learning disabilities this was my dirty little secret for most of my life. I was born in the 50’s and there was no knowledge about disability’s so I kept my mouth shut so people wouldn’t find out I was stupid. My cousins called me Zero after a cartoon character with an IQ of zero. So my feelings about myself were confirmed. I made it through high school with a lot of work.It wasn’t until my son was in school that I learned about disabilities and he had both audio and visual disabilities. That was when I found out what was wrong with me. And thank God by then there was help for him and I worked getting the help he needed. As I read this I look back at my sentences and know I still don’t write well but I’m here and just want you all to understand my trepidation.
