Hi Dickson! I’m sorry you’re going thru such a stuggle with this right now. But what you’re discribing sounds a lot like dysgraphia. Which is basically the inability to completely, if at all, comprehend/summarize what you’ve just read and put it on paper. For the most part, you either can’t do it or you have a really hard time doing it). There is the possibility of having Dyslexia, and/or adhd as well. My 14 yr old son stuggles with all 3 plus, ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) since birth and it sounds very much like what he experiences and what I’ve learned about them. Look into those. Do some research and see if that sounds like you at all. Stay positive (and safe)! 🙂
