    Having had no formal training in the great art of touch typing, I not only find myself editing, I just delete the whole post I spent many a minute pecking...thanks to a former employer and computer charting, my typing speed is mind boggling at perhaps 20 words per minute...but I am the only one who can read it...then I fix it, then I say to hell with it. Nice to know others are "lysdexic" when posting....

    i can't spell worth a damn either...!!! i have to have ms word open while i type a post. what i do is...write the post & before submitting it, i cut & paste it to ms word, hit the spell check grammar & theasurus, make all corrections there, then cut & paste the post back to the reply screen...add any characters like:...then preview the post & finally submitt it.

    99.9% of the time, it works, except for when i mis-type a word that sounds the same but mean a totally different thing (homonyms, i think)... english diffinitely wasn't & still ain't my strong suit....heeheehee !!! to my discovery & dismay, ms word spelling & grammar check isn't designed to catch those homonyms mistakes either. :uhoh21:

    I don't really care about your typos Rick as long as you're still talking to us!

    Glad to see you back...

    Heather was worried.

    I'm not dyslexic, but I'm a carrier!

    I created a support group. DAMN = Nashville Mothers Against Dyslexia!

    I learned to type back in the days of manual typewriters and never had occasion to use an electric. I gave my old Royal manual to Goodwill when I got my computer, and frequently wish I hadn't. My family always knows when I'm on the keyboard, because I still hit the keys like a manual--which is a prescription for typos. I ALWAYS have to edit before hitting "submit"

    I aced physics and organic chemistry - but I failed typing class 3 times.

    So guess who they ask to fix the computer when it goes down.

    OK, this must NEVER leave the thread... but, I typo occasionally...ok I typo LOTS... (sheesh, my chat room would KILL for this information). But, I have a GREAT backspace and I'm not afraid to use it. The thing I find I type dyslexic the most, are words with "tion" in them... typing them "toin".

    K, now I must hypnotize all of you so you won't remember any of my disclosure... "you are getting sleeeeeepyyyy.... you're eyes are heaaaavvvyyyy.... Lori is a perfect spelllllleeerrrrrr."

    Rick,
    I think I need to change my vote-I think I misread it. Something about tired eyes, blurry vision, floppy fingers, and durn it, I'm getting extra stuff in my comments, and having to correct a lot ,more. I think I am a "situational syslexic!"

    BTW, Rick-what is this about flight nursing? Are you going to be a heilocopter nurse? That is what I wanted to be, way back. I was told I could have the job when I finished ADN (I was LPN w/critical care exp.) My ex said that if I took that job he would leave me. I should've ex'd HIM out sooner!
    Ya'll be careful up there!
