[ID: A text-heavy comic titled “What is Dyscalculia? (dys-cal-coo-lia)” by @/adhd_bri. The title panel has the 4-panel meme of the woman looking around confused as mathematical equations float all around her head, except the comic artist has redrawn it to feature themself. Below this it says, “Read me!” with an arrow pointing right.
P2: “Dyscalculia is a specific learning disorder that focuses on difficulties related to numbers and mathematical concepts.” There is a drawing of a math test. “But that is not all it affects!”
P3: “People with Dyscalculia may also struggle with:
- Basic Math Concepts
- Directions/Reading Maps
- Recognizing Patterns
- Time Estimations
- Poor Working Memory
- Spatial Awareness & More!”
The artist has drawn a headshot of themself with tears in their eyes. Surrounding them are various letters, numbers, shapes, mathematical symbols, a clock, and a empty thought bubble.
P4: “Those with Dyscalculia often develop “Math anxiety” which worsens their struggles.” A person off-screen hands the artist a dollar bill and asks, “Hey, can you break this into small change for me?” The artist grimaces and thinks, “Oh no! Quick math…”
P5: “And that anxiety gets worse when we can’t use our normal coping mechanisms or support devices.” Someone off-screen says, “Remember class: NO CALCULATORS!” and “Miss Bri! Quiet please! And put down your hand.” The artist is writing at a desk and is counting aloud using their fingers with a distressed expression.
P6: “What can help manage Dyscalculia?” Tools like a calculator or reference sheet. Visual Aids like your fingers. Talking or writing the problem out. Breaking the problem down into steps. “And…”
P7: “MORE AWARENESS! The more people know about Dyscalculia, the more support we can get! There is a heavy stigma around it and many people live undiagnosed, thinking it is their fault. It’s also worth noting that Dyscalculia co-exists commonly with ADHD.” There is a drawing of a megaphone. “Want to help? Share, read up/learn more about it, and talk with your peers! Let’s remove the stigma and raise awareness!” /end ID]

im “if you like me you’re gay” but in reverse as in im antithetical to your sexuality
whatever your sexuality is, i am not. but you still find me hot
gender: whatever makes people feel as conflicted as possible about themselves
