Why do I keep transposing letters when I write and type?

Writing difficulty-cognitive

One cause of handwriting difficulty is cognitive – it's common for people with FMS to transpose letters when writing and typing – an acquired dyslexia that makes it even harder to write legibly and sensibly. Try to stick to the computer if at all possible, because your days handwritten things can get so full of cross outs before you finally get all the letters in the right order, that your hand is then too tired to write legibly.

This is totally true. I struggle with this problem frequently. It is made worse by the fact that I have been dyslexic since early childhood.

Would the same apply to words? I sometimes cannot think of the word and end up using another word in its place, or re-writing the whole sentence. I have Fibro.
