Hello Fellow Classmates,
This week’s discussion has been very interesting and engaging, to say the least. I felt like this week’s webtext was digging into a piece of my life that few people know about. I do see that I know some of the terms here on the list, however, the discussion asks us to pick one we do not know. I have chosen to do my discussion on Dyslexia. I am in some sort familiar with the term dyslexia, and I also do remember it being labeled as a reading disorder. However, I wanted to learn more about the disorder and found that not only do people who have this disorder have trouble recognizing letters but numbers can be difficult for them as well. In the searches, I did learn that Dyslexia is more likely a condition that someone inherits genetically. It can be fairly easy to diagnose if a child has difficulty reading aloud, or pronouncing words, or it a child has difficulty spelling. I found this particular order interesting and the reason why I remember hearing about it is watching American Idol and seeing that celebrity singer Fantasia has the disease. I can’t imagine being a singer having to read contracts, lyrics, music notes, but not being able to simply because I have a condition that causes my words to get a little mixed up. I honestly believe in just having that scenario take place where I am a singer and I am trying to read lyrics for a big performance but can’t because of the Dyslexia would cause me to have more conditions and disorders like anxiety over the simple fact that I don’t want to mess up.
3) PEER REVIEW #2(JOHANNE)
Professor and Class,
The disorder that I decided to discuss is agoraphobia. This anxiety disorder is the fear of places and situations that could cause people to feel helpless, embarrassed, scared, panicked, or trapped. It is said that only 0.8 percent of adults in the US have this disorder. Some of the symptoms include panic attacks, which include chest pain, shortness of breath, sweating dizziness, and being nauseous, to name a few. People often acknowledge that this fear is irrational, but they cannot do anything to stop it. There is no exact cause, but there are people who are more at risk than others if they are depressed, have other phobias such as social or claustrophobia. Also, the reason I was curious about this disorder is that I did not know much about it and also the fact that I do not know anyone personally who has this type of disorder.-Johanne Arpin
