THE OTHER TWIN and Dyslexia

Nathan Forester has dyslexia. He's always believed he was flawed because of his disability. Researching this learning disability was fascinating. I have to say I am amazed at what some poeple have to overcome to learn how to read.
But when I sat on a plane next to a young man who told me about his experiences living with his disability, our conversation made it real. This bright young man had always thought he was slow, stupid, until he was finally diagnosed with dyslexia. He did have trouble remembering life-time friends and reading street signs or following directions. Words and numbers would get scrambled--but not all the time. He thinks in 3-dimensions and I can't fathom what that would be like. But he'd mastered his disability and was programming for a major auto manufacturing. I hope I captured the frustration and the triumph in Nathan.
