This is usually uttered as a complaint against a not very serious threat, for example, a gardener might complain "those slugs are the bane of my life". Baneful threats weren't always so casual. 'Bane' is a very ancient word, recorded in the Old English Chronicles as early as circa 800, meaning 'murderer'.

Sesquipedalianism  I am dyslexia but I read this word straight off  recently   Working out Syllables was always the bane of my life   But I can say my dyslexia is cured by chance. I was actually trying to stop Muscle cramps, nerve pain & restless leg.  I took 400 mg of Chelated Magnesium with 1 Vit B 6 & 1 zinc pill it worked  The bonus is  I'm a better reader/speller &   concentrate big time too. The Combo seems to calm over active brains  so it may help with ADD for kids     Ann Wardley
