If they were feeling you up they probably weren't chocolate bars!! maybe you confused its long shape for something else in the dark??
I meant they dont fill you up as much as crisps, when I was hungry I would have a yorkie then I changed to crisps cos it filled me up for longer and now I have an apple! lol, I king-sized yorkie used to fill me up quite micely! ?I dont think I could manage half of one - but then again I used to have a supersized macdonalds and still have room for extra chips!

Not exactly. There were no tests done at our school to see if you were dyslexic, so I just thought I was always a bad spelling (and speaker) then in year 8 and 9 I spent hours and hours learning spellings and grammer to get it up to speed (luckerly I didn't have a problem with reading as my dad helped me read when I was younger) and then in year 10 my mum out of hte blue said,

I think you were dyslexic and I was like, eh? Whats that. She is a teacher and teaches a lot of dyslexic kids (around half her class every year are) so she said she had found dyslexic tendancies in my work, but I had started to outgrow them with the work I did. Now however they seem to be getting worse as does my speech, I really think I should do something about it. I cover any mistakes by dictionary in my work most of the time but wont notice fill and feel.

Anyway, I have no idea whether or not you were being serious with your comment but I decided to do a serious answer! Oh well at least that has cleared that up :P

Any one got any ideas on what to do? My speech is getting quite bad now - no on ecan understand what I am saying half the time!

It could be your accent (not sure where you are from so don't shoot me if I'm wrong)
I remember having lessons as a kid telling people that drawing does not have an L in it. The differences between are and our which are pronouced the same in Bristolian.

Thanks, support is cooler! Speech is the worst, I went to speech theropy when I was younger but it sorted itself out. I dont think it is linked to dyslexica (Ii would know) I odnt notice around my friends but as I have been meeting a lot of new people I notice I dont make sense. I'm often in the middle of a sentance when I just cant remember hte word. E.G. In Enlgish I was talking about the handmaids tale when I said something like, this is why Offred needed to be... then just sat there fore 30 secs till the teacher said - punished!

I stutter a lot, I mix up he and she, and sometimes just say completly the wrong words. The only problem is that I did a lot of work and ended going from a low level 4 at key stage two to an A at GCSE, so most people dont take me seriously. It is soo fustrating

I'm from Berkshire so my accent is generally okay, although I often say things a bit wrong cos my parents are from Scotland!

I'm just messing around online, atm. From what you're describing, it sounds like this...but that's generally caused by brain damage through strokes or accidents.

it doesn't seem like a speech sound disorder.

gah. I'll keep looking, but you're better off talking to someone in education -who's more in the know. You could even email someone at the dyslexia foundation and say "I might have dyslexia, but I don't know..these are my symptoms..what else could I have?"
haha that does sound hte same *Twilight zone music* but I haven't had an injury to the left side of my brain or my head as a whole (apart from concussion but that wasn't too bad!)

i used to like yorkies... but when i saw the advertising campaign i just went off them. it's no skin off my nose whether i have them or not, so if they want to cut out 50% of their possible consumer base it's up to them.

Reverse psychology. I guess their aim was to have women all over the country thinking 'F*** this for a game of soldiers, no ad campaign will tell me what I can and cannot eat' before rushing out to buy a Yorkie in spite of the fact that each bar contains about fifteen million calories )slight exaggeration.

Disappointed. I wandered into this thread thinking it was about Yorkshire Terriers...wanders out.

Are people actually that bothered about the advert?

well exactly... i think the yorkie ad campaign is alsong the same vein. Nobody would even consider saying 'not for jews' or such like in an ad... but somehow when it's women it's ok.
