Default Learning takes too much out of me

Hearing myself think is difficult for me. Writing down my thoughts helps. I am able to rediscover a few of those inner voices that I do not have the energy to finish thinking about. But then I forget what I have written, so I need to remind myself, "Are those inner voices trying to tell me something?" I guess writing out my questions and flushing out my own answers helps too. I need some resolve here. Does anyone else struggle with this when learning something new?

Yes I believe I may understand what youíre saying AB2371, when I learn something new it helps to write things out and in college would sometimes re-write my notes from class or re-read them. More difficult than learning for me, is social interaction and focusing on work in cubicle farm.

Frown Re: Learning takes too much out of me

I have never been tested for a Learning Disability other than ADD, since I havenít discuss my comprehending issues, with anyone not even my Doctor... Social Anxiety, ADD are a few of my other problems... I have such a difficult time comprehending everything.. Whether itís reading, sitting in a Conference, or watching a Documentary, etc... Itís to the point I avoid Socializing since I canít really partake in conversations since I donít remember much from Events, News, or Reading, etc that Iíve heard or done... Itís very worrying and is becoming detrimental to my personal Wellbeing, as well as my Profession, since I require to recertify skills and ongoing education. Everyday is a struggle...😥😐

I am on a reading and writing learning disability binge. I had to quit class for the time being because it takes too much out of me. I think it has to do with my social anxiety and my job. People think that I am going to quit my job and move on with my degree. I have gotten dirty looks and backtalking behind my back. I couldn't take it anymore. I had to chat with the National Hotline about my struggles. People think that I am retarded because I have a disability and they make fun of me. They make fun of why I don't have a boyfriend. They laugh at me because I don't have any friends. They tell me that my clothes are dirty and that I stink. My family has moved me out once and I got a choice to stay or go according to their strict hard to reach goals. I am such a mess that I can't see the light right now. I can't believe that this is effecting my classes. I don't know what I should do because I don't want to keep wasting my money. My health is getting worse and the doctors have not done any miracles. They treat me like a 10 year old. They want to babysit a 43 year old. That is extremely disrespectful. I just don't know what to say anymore. I am just going to keep quiet around my family and friends so that I do not get in any troubles. They know too much about my personal life and they pick at it to make me upset. I am in no shape to meet a strange person for a relationship right now. Quit frankly, it is no ones business. If they can't accept me for who I am then I can't accept them for who they are. I pray that I will be able to see through my struggles this year and forever after.

@Stillness06 I am sorry you have been having such a hard time. Your challenge with learning may be due to where you fall on the Autism Spectrum. You may need to learn in a way that you don't get overloaded with too much all at once. It's not so much that you can't learn, instead it's more about learning the way that works best for you.

Unfortunately, giving the age you are now, much was simply not understood about the learning capacity of those on the Autism Spectrum and often they suffered due to that lack of understanding. That often proved to be very hard on these individuals who often were treated poorly instead of fairly and respectfully given how their brain is wired.

I was challenged by that when raising my daughter who has Dyslexia. I had to learn how she learned according to how HER brain is wired. She also had to learn how she learned best too. There were times that she needed more time to process written things, like on tests and have time for that so she could understand the question and then answer it correctly. She was not stupid, in fact she actually had/has a high IQ, it's just how it takes her longer to read and process language.

Yes, there will always be others who simply don't understand another person's uniqueness. We all have to learn how to accept that and learn about ourselves the best we can and live our lives in a way that we can enjoy our own uniquenesses.
