...

Um, I think middle school refers to grades 6-8 and junior high refers to 7-9. Usually, as I understand it, when you went to junior high school you followed it with senior high school.
Though I think people generally use both for either nowadays.

Neat story and thanks for sharing. Did they figure LD explained the hyperactivity?

I'm not really sure what they thought back then simply because I was to young and I can no longer remember much about it. However, I was extremely hyperactive long before I was diagnosed with dyslexia, which is why they put on a stimulant for a short period of time before a teacher talked my mother out of giving it to me.

My mother says she now regrets taking me off the stimulant. However hindsight is always 20/20, so therefore I always try to remind her that she did the best job she could with the information available to her at the time, and I also regularly tell her that she did a wonderful job in raising me. Which is true!!! :)

Thanks for reading my story! :)

And do you have 4 on the floor? :cool:

I'm a 2 on the floor kind of guy! :D

And yes mine is probably one of the longer ones. :)

Explaining 43 years of your life when it's been a rocking road for most of it is rather difficult to explain in just a paragraph or two. Trying to keep it short and include everything and still keep it interesting is nearly impossible. At least it was for me!

Hey you got cajones for a dyslexic dude...I have never posted my story, ever, and I don't have an LD. Unless you count my hatred of higher mathematics :D.

2 on the floor? You must have a seat on the Sofa! :p
