I have always felt misunderstood, isolated, and sometimes frustrated when it comes to my learning disability. A lot of people don’t realize how much it has affected me on a daily basis. Many of my classmates, professors, friends, and even family members don’t understand why I need extended time, why my processing speed is slower, or the struggles I have to face in school. But I am so grateful to have my therapists’ support and guidance throughout these years because without them I would not be where I am today. I learned that everyone is unique and has obstacles/challenges they have to overcome in life. I hope sharing my experience will get people to understand that everyone is going through something even though they look fine and to be more compassionate and patient to those around them.
