So I tend to reverse many of the things that I say verbally. I have never been diagnosed with a learning disorder, I have no problem reading. I would know being a teacher I feel if it was a ld however, my husband always jokes and asks if I am dyslexic, because of what comes out of my mouth. For example, today I said, “Getting sad is old.” I might say ‘cheese-string’ instead of ‘stringcheese’. I can’t think of too many more off the top of my head but it probably happens 1-2 a week for maybe the past year. Is this normal? I just don’t want to have a tumor or something. I tend to freak out. Thanks!

This happens to me a couple times a day :P, and sometimes I have to stop and mentally catch up with what I’m saying. I looked it up once, and there actually is verbal dyslexia, but IDK if I have it. My grandma’s very similar, so I don’t think it’s a tumor!

I am dyslexic and I do talk backwards mostly when I am tired. People look at me very strange when this happens and I will repeat myself the exact same way. I still don’t get it sometimes, until I really think about it. I really don’t think you have a tumor, but if you are really worried, I suggest going to the doctor to set your mind at ease.

This happens to me all the time, too, pretty much at least once a day. I don’t think there is anything wrong though, I just think, and have been told, I talk way too fast and my brain can’t keep up.

I say thing wrong all the time. Sometimes I switch whole words around and sometimes I switch parts of words around. I was talking about my bridesmaids Stacy and Beth the other day and refered to them as Seth and Bacy. I got some confused looks from that one. Also, for the life of me, I cannot call my seat heaters in my car the right thing- it always comes out heat seaters. It happens at least daily that I mix things up. I wonder all the time if I have some sort of dyslexia but I figure it doesn’t matter if I do, because I’m doing all right in life. In fact, I graduate in May with a doctorate degree.
