Ditto Squeaky. If going into History or Pre-Law is what makes you happy, then do it. If you only pursue a degree because you think it will land you the "right" job, or a more lucrative career, you will never be happy. Follow your heart, do what is right for you. I had to fight my way tooth and nail through 3 math classes (really 5 if you count the times I had to re-take them, lol) to get where I wanted to be, but I did it.
Find a good academic adviser at your university, and stick with them. If you are registered with disabled student services, take advantage of that as much as humanly possible during your math-intensive courses. Use your accommodations, find classes that meet your degree requirements without having so much math in them that you're floundering. These people make their living in helping students like you get to where you want to be, so utilize them!
