Im I the only one who wants to learn math/physics and has ADD? I feel like I am the only one with this problem. I have Attention deficit disorder(ADD) and obsessive compulsive disorder(OCD).The psychologist that told me I have ADD told me I am a "slow learner". I have a hard time remembering new information. Meaning if I am learning a new term or concept it takes MUCH longer for me to remember the information. I have to repeat the information to myself much more than most people. Its humiliating. How my psychologist figured out that I have ADD was by looking at my IQ scores. He told me that my scores is very uneven in all the areas (Such as memory, problem solving, visual logic, etc.) whereas most people score about the same number in all areas. When it comes to my reasoning abilities I was above average. He said my scores ranged from an average community college student to university student. But when it came to my short term memory, I scored almost borderline to borderline. I lose things all the time, I need constant reminders, and often forget important things. I knew I had a learning disability, but I had no idea I was that bad. I cried for hours. I have been teaching myself algebra/precalculus, and I am just fine learning on my own time. But last time I went to college I almost failed all my classes and failed precalculus part one because I am so slow. I dont want to rely on drugs. I dont know if I am even capable either way. When my boyfriend last night was trying to teach me about computers and networking (which I am very interested in.) I had a hard time keeping up. He thinks I am very smart. But how can I be so smart if I cant remember ANYTHING?! How can I be smart but be a slow learner?! It makes no sense! Im I the ONLY one who has this problem?! If I go back to school and fail again I WILL lose my financial aid. I want to go to school and have a career so badly. I am sick of being paid only a little above minimum wage (7.50/hour.). I am sick of doing work I HATE. I am so stuck. Do you guys have ANY advice to me? Im I the only one with this problem?!
