over the last three years, I've become aware that I will say one thing, but I mean to say another. Usually, what I say sounds very similar to what I meant to say as exampled this night when I said 'Feft' but meant to say 'Theft'. I had to repeat myself 4 times before I finally said it correctly, however no one noticed as I tend to slightly slur my words when I speak. Later in the night I tried to say 'Grand Theft Auto' (as in the game) but instead said 'Rockstar Games' which is the maker of the game. In both instances, what I actually said was related/similar to what I actually wanted to say although one sounded similar and the other sounded nothing like what I wanted to say. I am dyslexic. I don't know if their is a speaking form of dyslexia, Ts or what, but this concerns me as the problem is growing more pronounced.
