I do too. I had to take stats for my degree and it was such a nightmare. I was really fortunate to have a prof who genuinely wanted students to do well in her class and she put in so much extra time helping me out, but I felt so stupid the whole time.

Same here. Anything math related always ruined my otherwise good GPA

same and i didn't know i had it until i was in my 30s. it was such a fucking relief, knowing it was an actual thing and that it likely came from abuse and therefore, no fault of my own. so now idgaf if i can't look at numbers for too long.

Came from abuse? How so? This is of specific interest to me.

repeated head trauma can cause it. it can also be from fetal alcohol syndrome or other birth related issues. or stroke. or a variety of neurological issues. it's not likely something genetic.

Shit same. I hope my future kid will be much better at it than me because dyscalculia has been tough for me to deal with. From being bullied because you cannot do simple algebra at the top of your head or simply failing higher education because of that one issue.

Oh god I just had a flashback of doing mad minutes in 4th grade and struggling. We had like this chart on the wall everyone could see that tracked how many problems we solved in a minute and I was always in last place.

Yeeeeep. Wish I knew I about it while I was in school, because math and anything with numbers gave me so much anxiety and dread.

Yes! It was such a relief and heartache when I learned of this. I really thought I was some selective idiot. Self esteem crushed every math class. I took fucking intro to mathematics in college and barely squeaked by.

Yep! 95-98 percentile in my final scores, 60 something in math. And I guessed half of the math questions. Sigh.

how do u have dyscalculia and get 60 in math

i'm envious

my marks were always in 90s too but i could barely pass 40 in math no matter how hard i tried and how long i studied. there was one time i got only 13% and i tried VERY hard. i only got 40-50 final because my teacher was sympathetic and saw how hard i always tried. i prob wouldn't have gotten past 35 if it weren't for him
