oh no, I don't think you're "too old"! I say, go for it! If in U.S., you can check out Learning Disabilities Assoc. America and National Center for Learning Disabilities for resources in your state or region; also check site www.ldpride.net
which is BC <Canada> based but could be useful. Also local vocational rehab. services, literacy/adult tutoring services, independent living centers and various other places are all possible sources of where you might go to possibly find people who could further direct you in your area. Many times these kinds of places are interconnected - clients may be receiving services at more than one kind of agency; tutors/social service providers may have backgrounds in a variety of services and supports or may have contacts at other facilities, etc.
I am sorry to read of your bad memories; I have them too. And jobs and other things I have done have been affected in a variety of ways.But now I am proud of who I am and do not hide my LD. I am in my 30's.
Best Wishes :)
