Did Anyone Else Struggle In Math?

Did Anyone Else Struggle In Math?

After much research I now realize why behavioral health would ask me how I did in school and was I good at math.I was horrible in math, and that’s a sign that something can be wrong with the development of your brain.

Just a matter of what you like- epileptic or not. Ever hear of E=MC2-
Einstein had frequent seizures. Michelangelo was epileptic but was
into art. Learning disorders make it more difficult to count, understand.
Epilepsy-like any health condition- does not affect only a certain type.

I have always been a shocker at maths but these days I have even used cutlery to count. I can use my fingers until I get to ten and then I forget. I tend to write numbers first number as second and miss numbers altogether no matter how many times I check it. I did ask my neurologist what was happening he said I wasn't focusing because of all the absent seizures I am having

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member I was never talented at math during my school years, but when I have done all the little puzzles and tests for them it gives me the weirdest feeling. Not exactly like a seizure but its unexplainable. I get lost in my mind and the numbers aren't numbers or the puzzle pieces aren't pieces and I don't realize I'm supposed to be solving the puzzle. It takes me (feels like 20 times) longer to process math since my surgery. and I have little sensory seizures if I try to count change even sometimes now.

I was good when you could show what the number meant (like geometry or accounting) but not so much with just algebraic formulas
