Simply Me

 

It’s been there all my life.

It’s made my life very difficult.

I’ve come a long way since the diagnosis and have worked hard to get where I am in school.

I don’t typically tell people because I don’t want them to treat me any different.

I have worked hard to not be the little girl I was 7 years ago when I was thought to be a below average student.

I am afraid to let other people at school know about my learning disability in case they might not challenge me like the rest or that they might not treat me like an equal intellect.

I have come to realize my learning disability, although at times may make me struggle and I have to work harder than the rest just to keep up, but that’s what makes me who I am.

If others cannot see that I am still the same person they thought I was before I told them of my learning disability, that is their loss… but definitely not mine!
