Mel B Diagnosed with Dyslexia. Mel B was recently diagnosed with dyslexia, and she said before she found out what it was, she thought her brain was wired differently. That had to be scary, not being able to read and not knowing what it was. She says it was very hard trying to memorize lyrics and she felt dumb at school when she fell behind. She says it is a relief to finally know what was going on. Good for you Mel B.
