I feel I have some mental problems

I'm not going to a Dr, but I feel I do have problems. I had a horrible time in school. I took algebra 1 for 4 years. I can never remember stuff, I'm only 24. I don't understand a lot, I tend to have to think of stuff and I hate talking to people because I have no idea what to talk about. I don't really know why my parents never took me to a dr. My parents have always told me I have problems. What do you think?

I think you are ok. Work on those areas and they will improve

Have you always been forgetful? I mean, it all sounds pretty normal if you ask me.. Some people just struggle in school and maybe you just need some extra time to process stuff.

yes and 4 years repeating algebra 1 isn't alarming at all?

is this in college? have you tried using the school's math lab, sought tutoring? 

https://www.khanacademy.org/ is great for math help, too.

If you have mental problems because of math, then most people have mental problems.  Being bad at math doesn't mean you need a doctor.

I hate reading. I stutter and mix up my words/letters. Can't pronounce some words
