...basically anything involving arithmetic, screws me up. It's very frustrating for me -- but I bet it's even worse for anybody who has to depend on me for any of these things. I feel like King Arthur. "One, two, five!" "Three, sir!" "Three!" *kaboom*

Thank you for your patience, anybody who's routinely impacted by this particular quirk. I'm just as annoyed at it as you are!

The part of my brain affected by the scarring which causes my epilepsy also processes numbers and abstract concepts. If it involves those or geometrical references or depth and distance perceptions, I have problems. It's extremely annoying because I can't really explain to other people for whom these concepts are "simple" why I can't seem to process any of them. I'm dyslexic to boot so things like 3, 8, 6, and 9 are interchangable. That's not a good thing when you're trying to balance a checkbook.
