For me words don’t look like this on paper. They look almost 3 dimensional. Not everything is misspelled in my mind, just misread over and over again like a glitching computer not knowing that its repeating itself. I can’t process the meaning of words when they are written without putting in much more effort than most of my peers. But you would never know this by looking at me because I am pretty smart academically, (I get A’s and B’s on most of my assignments). Not all dyslexics get bad grades but we struggle a lot more than most to maintain good grades. How it is represented in the media is completely inaccurate most of the time and is not true to most people experiences with it.
