    I have every known form of dyslexia, disgraphica, discalcula, audio processing disorder and the rare visu canal processing disorder. It seems to have made me more "creative" because I literally dont process the world like most of you do, except tactically (touch) is similar. Like my best friend who is high functioning autistic (and also a female trek fan) , overlapping stimuli are the worst....but she likes them, me it make me want to vomit. I have problems on standardized psych tests because tehy dont allow for that for the untrained I have to explain so my reactions can be property interpreted and along with a high IQ I can get into trouble because I have different patterning responses. Before modern computers they used to seek out people like me as codebreakers because some human generated patterns are obvious to us if not most of the population.

    It also means I could never learn another language because I usually have to imprint a new word over the old not make it an alternative or additional thing. So of course my parents who spoke multiple languages gave me a fame that mixed french and german names that english speakers have trouble pronouncing.

    Reading upside down, backwards, left ro right/right to left.....its all pretty much the same to me, and made me wonder for years if DiVinchi was dyslexic. .

    No, I think she was dealing with a lot of stuff and it was just too many pots to stir. I sometimes feel that way and have taken breaks from the BBS too. Hope she will be back soon.

    I am allergic to the sun. I stay out too long without long sleeves or my special super expensive shirts, I suffer from awful rashes. And I overdid it and now have one! ahhh...

    I don't have any allergies that I know of. I can eat pretty much anything I want without a problem for example. I used to think that it comes from having been poor but now I am not so sure. Well, I am almost sure that the fact that my parents grew and raised most of our food was a great contributor (it spared me decades of poisoning by industrial chemicals that are put in almost all the food we buy in stores). My brothers don't suffer from any allergies either.

    I don't have a sun allergy, but I might as well have.I'm so pale, I'm almost transparent. I literally can get a sunburn in 15/20 minutes, easily.I have to cover up, wear sunscreen and a hat even if I'm just going out to water the yard. My mom lost a big chunk out of her leg to skin cancer (I used to tell the kids at school she'd been bitten by a shark; it sounded cooler!) and I've had several small spots cut off (not fun), so the sun is not my friend.

    I'm definitely an indoor cat.

    I'm not allergic to anything (that I'm aware of). Although I, too, burn easily. Especially on my bald head.

    I keep forgetting to wear a cap when I'm out doing yard work.

    I also wasn't wearing one that time in NYC when I happened upon the filming for Spider-Man 3, stayed too long to watch, and got a fair bit of burn. :(

    A watched pate never burns :D I recommend a very strong sunblocker and/or a hat. People frequently underrate the risks and get skin cancer on top of their heads.

    I can hold my breath for three minutes (while the average person can't get to a minute without feeling like they're gonna die). It comes from training, not a natural ability.

    Thanks, but I'm old. It's to be expected, but still is sad.
