Do you really Know Me??

Most people may describe me as a happy person. However, what might surprise you is that, I'm not. I've had a plethora of problems in childhood and I never really told anyone any of my stories. I'm a secretive person. I don't tell people about my life or my past and I usually keep things to myself.  As a child I found out I had dyslexia, a developmental reading disorder.  I grew up with this as a secret, I seldom told a soul of it. My peers would spend perhaps 20 minutes on an assignment while I would spend hours.  I would need to apply myself more than others around me.  Yet, no matter how hard I tried i was never at the same level I always felt like I was behind.  Even to this day I deal with it and it hasn't gotten any easier.  I'm constantly under stress and it elevates to distress.  It's one of the toughest challenges I have to face.
