Edited: Before I knew I had dysgraphia, I was confused. I knew that there had to be something wrong, but I didn't know what. So I kept looking for the answer. I looked at dyslexia but I could read really, really well. So well, I was several grades above what I was supposed to be. So that was quickly ruled out. I looked at ADD or ADHD because I have such a hard time focusing. Because of that, my parents had me tested. For the same reason I was thinking I might have it, but again I was wrong and didn't have either. So I looked more into Dyslexia and ADD trying to find out what was wrong with me. Then in fourth grade, I was asked to be a typical kid in one of my mom's friend's studies. I don't remember exactly what they had me do, but i'm guessing some of it had to do with writing or spelling because her friend pointed out that I probably had dysgraphia. He was actually the one who officially diagnosed it. Now you would think, "Hey that must have cleared up everything and now she knows whats wrong." You would have been right had my parents chosen to tell me. I would have understood it better, but they didn't. I kept looking for answers and never finding one. By the time my parents told me, I was leaning towards having a very strange case of dyslexia. After they told me, I still didn't really understand what it meant and kinda used it as an excuse. When I entered tenth grade, that changed. I started getting more info on it off the internet and started to understand what it meant and what pieces of it i had and those I didn't. That is where I am now, learning more about it and trying hard to understand why its happiningto me and to others.
