When I was undergoing tests for ASD, I had to do a number test and she noted how anxious I was with that.

However, I can do basic math and even challenge myself a little and do a little gleeful dance, when the calculator gives the same answer I had done in my head.

As a child, in my first math lesson, I had my first ever migraine and perhaps that is why I fear math and yet, weirdly, I am very good with accounting/book keeping).

My husband was not impressed when he found out how bad I am with math, when we got married and it was a daily nightmare, when I thought I had to weigh and calculate how long a chicken could cook for! I would beg him to help me out and sometimes he did and other times, he refused.

I have got to a point in my life, where I joke about it. Math and I have a mutual understanding that we hate each other!

It is assumed being on the spectrum, we ought to be genusies with math and I have been asked that before, on finding out I have Aspergers. The reply would be: wow, you must be great with math and rather disappointed when I said it was the opposite.

Oh, I used to count with my fingers and got quite good with doing that. And, when the teacher said in a test: no one must use their fingers to count or a calculator. I just hid my hands under the desk and counted that way lol
