Do you have a learning disability?

If yes, what is it and how does it affect your life?

I have dyscalculia.  When I was in school it was hell, but as an adult it doesn't affect me much.  Just in annoying way, I have a hard time my hair in the mirror, I have a hard time reading crochet patterns if they are charts or math involved, I recently made an afghan out of square and the entire picture came out reversed, I don't know why or how to fix it.  I don't recognise people when I see them in unexpected places, I've even walked by my own twin sister (not identical) and not known it was her until she spoke to me.

I grew up in the 70s when they did not label kids.  I always struggled horribly in math( I still do).  I remember from first grade on, how awful it was.  I remember my mom trying to teach me how to add/subtract and it was so hard for me.  I remember dad trying to help me with Jr. High math and getting so frustrated with me. Somehow, I managed to work through it and got my MA degree.

 My oldest brother has dyslexia, my mother tried so hard to get him help in school but back then it wasnt as big of a deal. He graduated with his class, but struggled all the way through school. He has a very hard time comprehending things, documents, directions, etc. My husband never graduated past 10th grade I believe. He has comprehension problems, focusing issues, he also suffers from SEVERE mental illness.

what is that? my son has been dx dyslexic but has the same issues you have described. He was crossing his eyes when he was a kid to try to read and they had to give him special glasses.

I have ADHD. Don't know if that counts or not.

Want to smack every teacher I had who treated me like shit and rub my masters degree in their faces.
