and: one of my molars, sometimes it feels weird and I push it sideways with my tongue, and then there's a little snap/pop/click noise- like it just fell into place, or was pushed out of place, or something. What's going on there?
God my teeth suck. I'm going to go back in time and drill-sergeant myself into better care of them.
edit: new question, not related.
So, I might have a learning disorder.
I'm pretty sure my father would think a learning disorder just means you're stupid/lazy/just not paying attention.
My mother's a little bit dyslexic, just enough to make her a bad speller and sometimes sing the wrong words to hymns because she's reading too fast, but you probably wouldn't know unless she actually told you (I didn't). I'm kinda worried she might think it's some small annoyance that you just work around, get someone to check your work.
I'm in math 104 at my college- it's as close as you can get to remedial and still get credit(and i can't take remedial because I'm on a scholarship). I only have a vague idea of what we're doing, i think it involves lines... and where the lines cross is how many of each somethings you have. I made a 640 on the SATs in math. It's not that I suck. I just don't get it. I can't get someone to check my work if I just get frustrated and cry and not do it because I have noooo idea what we're doing because I keep getting fractional t-shirts and parts of knives.
Getting diagnosed will cost money, getting tutoring will cost money. I can maaaaybe cover both of those, at least one or the other, but whichever I can't cover- and possibly both just for protocol- will show up on my university bill. So I have to tell my parents. How do I tell them without getting shit for it then and shit for it whenever the bill comes out?
