Since my strokes last summer I have suffered with acalculia, a problem with adding, subtracting, multiplying and division brought on by the strokes.
I get terrified when using money as I can't add the coins etc together, I see a bank statement as gobbledegook, but can write down numbers if called out to me such as a phone number; but don't ask me to add them together!
When I worked I did balance sheets, I made them balance without a problem so this is so upsetting for me. I go into panic mode when asked maths questions even in passing.
I am looking for help for this, I was told a speech therapist would help me but she wanted to concentrate on my poor speech, someone else said it is part of occupational therapy so I am confused.
I try and sound knowledgeable about things such as 'oh that is a good price' until someone says no it is more than so and so charges. I can admit to this problem but would love to find help without being pushed from pillar to post.
