All my life I thought of myself as some kind of freak because I had such a hard time learning anything, and now at 57 to find out it could have been the meningitis..... I'm glad my parents didn't tell me as a child, but if they knew, it would have been nice to not have been called lazy or stupid. Because I'm not, I just learn a little differently than most people.
Only took an eleventh grade teacher I thought hated me, to teach me that. He caught me ditch his class at Disneyland on the day he took a union day. Worked security there also.
