    Um. A rather odd problem, but lately I have been find it hard to concentrate on what I am writing/typing. It's A LOT worse if I am doing it while the TV's on or someone's talking, not worse as in slightly distracting, but very.

    I am also repeatedly using words that sound the same but have different meanings. Like bye instead of by, two instead of too, sun instead of son. You get the idea.

    Does this indicate a learning disorder of some sort?

    Well, if it's writing in general, perhaps it could be dyslexia?
    Maybe a stressful time, and your mind is on other things, or possibly even just tiredness.

    Could be dyslexia. But you don't develop these things, you're born with them.

    Probably not.

    If you're finding it hard to concentrate, turn off everything else. Take a break every half an hour or whatever. I have the same problem.

    I don't know about the word thing though; have you always done it?

    Well, I do know Urdu. But haven't had this problem before.
