Brains… Do I have any?

Today I have spent time being tested for all sorts of things.

Why? Well, I decided that I wanted to know.

You see, being a dyslexic, I was tested back in 1997…

And due to coping strategies I may have changed.

I may have got better!

It is possible that I am worse.

But I was willing to have a go.

Of course as I sat down I hadn’t realised how much it had changed.

I should’ve had an idea when I was told it would ‘take all day’.

I thought they were over exaggerating.

They weren’t.

It took all day. The two hour test had grown.

Two hours – that is how long it took in 1997.

Easy… It isn’t now.

And nor does it just test for dyslexia.

There are over-laps.

So I am now waiting for the report as to what I’ve got.

But it was just a practice test

so if I have anything I’ve got to see another specialist.

Another day of tests.

    1. It’s interesting. The test was harder but all the basic elements were there. Essentially it was almost exactly the same but in more depth. I feel like I have been ‘tested’ and now of course there are the over-laps which were not even considered when I was tested. I am interested to see if I am just dyslexic or a mix… So in that way I think it is an improvement. The only real issue was how tired I got by the end.
