6 9th Grade “I have so many feelings of being different from every one else because it is hard for me to learn. It takes a while for me to figure out what's going on around me -- I get so confused with all of the different things people expect me to learn and remember…. I always feel stupid about not knowing more than my younger sister. Please write and tell me what I should do.”

7 10 th Grade "I think having a learning disability has taught me how much a person like myself need to fight what is hurting them physically and mentally. Things are just terrible in school. When my teachers treat me like I can't learn I feel like a baby, it just convinces me that I really am stupid there are times when I feel so different, so left out, so lonely, and so sad. I have a very dead heart about life.”

8 Young Adult “Most mornings now, I wake up thinking about how unsuccessful I have been and how stupid I will always be. I look at my little daughter when she is asleep and hope that she doesn't turn out like me.”
