I've been accidentally flipping numbers around at work like mad lately. I'm finding myself spreading "sorry"s all over the place because I keep referring to the incorrect reference numbers in messages.
What's up with this? I've never been plagued with dyslexia as a kid. In fact, math was probably my best subject through high school. (I aced every year, including the AP Calculus I took in Senior year.) I can only wonder if this is yet another way my concussioned and fibrofoggy brain has decided to vex me. With the supposed ADHD affecting my concentration, should I consider this number flipping an extension of that problem?
During my self-analysis, I found this interesting term and article: Dyscalculia. Particularly, I notice "Dyscalculia can also occur as the result of some types of brain injury." Under the symptoms listing I also notice difficulty with judging time, which I have also noticed in myself lately (or for all I know, maybe it's been going on for years now). I also noted in my journal recently that I had repeatedly noted the right side, instead of the left side, had been bothering me lately. Repeatedly. Who gets left and right confused as an adult? I guess it could happen to anyone.
I could be reading too much into this. I'm one of those kind of people who tries to be vigilant, but sometimes ends up being neurotic. That's all a matter of opinion, though, right? Can you relate? What's your feelings on this?
