I have always equated the problems with my handwriting to my father walking behind me as a child. Now my neurologist has confirmed scar tissue is the reason I have problems with my handwriting, rather than the emotional scarring of being watched, as a child.
Although others have no idea of my daily struggles, just filling in a form is difficult. Because handwriting is something we learn as a child, I feel embarrassed that I continue to struggle with it. Perhaps my blog shows others that we all have struggles that we face and that it’s okay.
The problem is, I don’t know how much of my handwriting issue is down to scarring, or how much is down to my father watching me walk. That is something I’ll never know. All I know is that I have difficulty with my handwriting.
