Can one become dyslexic? In the last couple of months, I have noticed that I often transpose letters and numbers. This is a recent development - I never used to do this, honest. My problem is not just hitting keys in the wrong order, though God knows I do that often enough, but it is most noticeable when I actually write things down. My notepad has become littered with odd words. When someone gives me a phone number, I will say out loud, "seven three nine two," and I'll repeat it as I write "seven nine three two". My major concern is that this really is a recent thing. I'm worried that I am developing dyslexia. Or something more severe. Hypocohnrdia, perhpas?
