We see a lot of posts here about feelings of anger regarding their condition and as the anger is often retrospective (towards unsympathetic teachers, parents, employers etc of the past) I wondered if it is bitterness that we're really talking about?
Bitterness is known as the frozen lake of anger; feelings of being anger twinned with helplessness. As we are looking back in anger the feeling of helplessness is always there because we cannot go back in time and change things.
Post traumatic embitterment disorder (PTED) is psychiatry's newest mental illness, a condition known to people who feel they have been wronged but unable to do anything about it. I bet this condition is also common with dyscalculia because a learning disability will always be met with unsympathetic people. Do you feel that dyscalculia has caused much injustice in your lives where you cannot seem to get the memories out of your head? Do you find yourself reliving unpleasant events sometimes fantasising about what you would like to have said or done? Are these memories perhaps obsessive compulsive?
I have found that PTED was diagnosed a few years ago but nothing else was said on the matter, no treatment or cure. If you Google the PTED you'll find no comments added to it since 2009 at the latest. This is a shame because I feel it was a very worthy condition to be diagnosed as it affects so many people in all walks. I feel that of all the learning difficulties dyscalculics go through the hardest time therefore often feel bitterness.
