Q:

I write and read backwards with both hands. Do I have some type of disorder?

"I can write backwards with my left hand and forward with my right hand. Do you know what that would mean?"

Dear Donna:


What a skill!  I am not sure what it means medically except that your right and left brain seem to work better than most of us. It is called "plasticity" and subject to a lot of recent study.  Google it and see what comes up.
