Uhhhh. Here's my success story. They said that I have a learning disability at age 6, and almost put me on Amphetamines (My family didn't want to go down that route though), because I couldn't focus properly on certain subjects (Math, Science, etc.), but I loved writing/English class, and I liked Social Studies. So, from age 6-age 17 or so (First time I tried Cannabis. Maybe that had something to do with it. lol) I thought that something was wrong with me, but then my brain sort of just clicked on at age 17, and I was suddenly doing better in school, more focused on my writing, and I came to the realization that there are certain subjects that I'm not as interested in (mostly just Math though), and certain subjects that I am interested in. The good thing about a label like "learning disability" is that it might help psychologists understand how to help struggling kids in school more, and which ways are most effective when it comes to teaching them in a classroom. That's debatable though, because it really all depends on the teacher's approach to teaching anyway, and if the teacher is willing to communicate better with the students who don't exactly fit into their societal box. The bad thing about a label like "learning disability" is that if you don't fit into their box, then they'll find another box for you to live in, but after I was finished high school, I wanted absolutely NOTHING to do with my "learning disability" label whatsoever. Why? Because, it didn't ******* matter anymore. lol. It was a temporary label that was stuck on me while people were trying to figure out how to convince me to become more interested in certain subjects while my brain was still developing.
