I Need Help

on May 9, 2020

Dear friends,

One of the worst problems for people isolated over a long period of time is forgetting how to spell words.  Unfortunately that is now my strongest and most embarrassing  problem. Once I taught reading and writing successfuly to children in schools, but know I need help even to writing my own name.

Up until now, when I needed to spell correctly my computure helped me, but its help was neither quick nor easy to follow.  I managed by trying to correct my wrong spellings, but that has become so difficult that now I just replace errors with different words.

After revealing my current problem I humbly ask for your help. When I need to write again and wan’t to post my work, would anyone have the time to read my writing and correct it?  If so, please let me know your name and when, where or how you could help me.

Thanks for your your many strong responses in the past.  Any help you can provide now would be much appreciated.
