Thread subject: The Dyscalculia Forum :: i dont no whats wrong
Posted by Tina on April 24 2006 11:46 PM
I feel that the anxiety associated with dyscalculia also affects other areas in my life. I'm constantly afraid of "messing up" and get everything wrong, especially if I have to speak in front of people or if i'm confronted with tasks that are closesly monitored and based on performance. I've somewhat learned to live with this, but it still can cause me to break down.
Unfortunately, I don't have any good advice to give you other than letting you know that you're not alone feeling completely stressed out in these types situations. Even though you don't have any problems with reading per se, the same fear, which is associated with dyscalculia, might creep up on you and make you feel the same way as you do when performing a math problem...
Maybe somone else can give you some useful and comforting advice on how to deal with this. I would need some help with this too.
