i was diagnosed with having learning disabilities all through school by tons of docs and pros and then in my twenties and thirties other pros and 1doc said i have develoopmental disability, intellectual disability, developmental delay, mentally challenged and that i have more and worse then learning disabilities and they keep telling me this and they have changed my disability from learning disability to all this other stuff and i was told to stop calling myself ld bc i have mental retardation and when i tell ppl that doctors told us growing up i was learning disabled they just don't believe it and just that i am more severe much more. and my mother tells me that ppl r only telling me that truth and that they only say i have a learning disability bc it's what i want to hear she just keeps saying the only reason ppl tell u that u have ld is bc that is only what u want to hear the pros and docs also think my iq which is average/normal is to low to have lds the doctor thold her most ppl with lds have above average iqs i have also been enrolled in the arc and all these MR programs but i dont qualify for and ld support group like ld of michigan bc they have diagnosed as not ld anymore but mr. is it possible to go 20yrs with LDs and then changing it 2 mr?
