I have depression AND dyslexia..I tried to committ suicide, so I threw myself behind the bus.

Never go see a psychiatrist, see a voo-doo doctor instead...they are basically the same thing, except a voo-doo doctor does less harm. And he won;t write you prescriptions because he's affilliated with the big drug makers.....

What a handsome and down-to-earth young man. I hope that as he gets older, he finds someone that truly desrves him!

Stargazer, that is completely idiotic. Psychiatrists do not diagnose dyspraxia...neurologists do. It's a brain impairment. And people don't take medication for it - they simply learn strategies to compensate for their difficulties carrying out certain tasks.

My 5 year old son has Apraxia of speech. He is unbale to make certain sounds to speak clearly. He has been in speech threapy since he was 2 and is making great strides. Unfortunitly it is still very hard at times to understand what he is trying to say.I'm glad people like Radcliff and Phelps are coming forward. It helps people to understand.
