Finding Her Voice; Finding happiness.

All my life, I have had to personally devise ways of coping with directional dyslexia. I didn’t know what it was, (till recently of course) but I knew I had to deal with it since it wouldn’t go away, try as I may. I discussed my experience with this disability here.

Rather than risk getting lost and panicking, I will jot down the direction, pay serious attention to landmarks and signs. Of course, when all fails, I will ask people for directions. Most people are willing to help though sometimes, I end up more confused or lost from wrong directions.

Short term memory issues are also part of my directional dyslexia. I make up for that disability with writing. If I don’t want to forget instructions, ideas, thoughts, and every other important stuff, I jot them down immediately before they get lost.

To distinguish my left from my right, I demonstrate eating or writing knowing I mostly eat with my right hand. No, you won’t notice nor understand what I am doing because I’ve become a professional at the acting. I recently learnt that the hand where your wristwatch usually resides can be a pointer too.

I still have fear for driving, though GPS seems like a cold comfort. Not like I can make head or tail of maps.

I have given up on distinguishing east from west or north from south, unless of course I see the sun setting.

There are many other minor coping skills that come in handy as each occasion demands. I’m still learning too because the skills are never enough.

Being rid of directional dyslexia will beat all the coping skills. Maybe researchers can help save our souls.

Someone once said that an unexamined life is not worth living and I believe that to be true to a great extent, right?

I have not posted in so long a time that I know some people might think I have quit blogging or writing all together. No way!

I had to give myself time to float like a balloon drifting in the air, without purpose or specific destination. Wherever the wind of life blew me to, I gladly went.

My life these past three months has been one of leisure without guilt, taking one day at a time without worrying about tomorrow or bothering about setting any agenda or goals for my tomorrow.

It had its ups and downs, and so I learnt that even in that period of hiatus, one cannot be completely free from worries and stress.

So there, that is the reason behind my long absence from the blogosphere.

I apologize for the hiatus, and I hope sincerely that it does not happen anytime soon again.

I am back, so Lets continue this show friends, I have missed you guys plenty.
