No you were. You wrote:

Also, psychiatrists are specialists in mental illness not cognitive psychology. A psychiatrists will likely not even have ever heard of repetition blindness because it isn't a psychopathology.

RE: repeating words typed, is it a mental issue ?
I transpose letters constantly, double type words, leave words out, screw up sentence structure and what have you - if I can be done I do it. Probably the majority of my posts get corrected yet again after I post them.

Firstly, I can't type for shit, I hunt and peck. Secondly, when I post I have the whole post in my head, and my fingers cannot keep up with my thoughts. So I just get it down as fast as possible, and then go back and clean it up.

I may be crazy as a loon, but that's not the reason I can't type a sentence without corrections. Tongue

Speaking as moderator:

This is the support section. It has rules. It is not for debates between secondary posters. It is solely for support of the OP.

This is the one section we have that is moderated heavily. Please stick to the rules.

Skippy's just looking to fight and appear smart. No worries Dom. I don,t engage that silliness anyways.

To the OP, my advice stands. Regardless of any words that have been put in my mouth, I recommend seeing a doctor if you are concerned.

Even though my experience is relevant, I'm gonna duck out from here. It's hard enough talking about my schizophrenia without some asshole quoting texts (and the DSM? What a joke!) and trying to tell me what I said.

So many cats, so few good recipes.
