Math Limits Me - But I Can Write!

VISITORA very bright and creative older adult I just needed to be reassured that I am not yet crazy. I have lived with extremely limited mathematical ability all of my life. It affects me in many ways - it's hard to hold a job, keep from getting cheated, remember birthdays and to pay bills. I can write books, tell stories and almost anything involved in the arts including singing, but I cannot remember the words to anything and never have.

DYSCALCULIA.ORG: Try reading, "A Mind for Numbers, How to learn math and science, even if you flunked Algebra" by Dr. Barbara Oakley. Dr. Oakley flunked out of high school math and science and later in life, figured out how to learn math, and became an electrical engineer and then college professor. She shows you how she went from not being able to tell time on a face clock, to successfully tackling math.
