I have a hard time understanding new information


I have a problem understanding what people say to me.

My problem is that I have a very hard time absorbing spoken and quickly-delivered new information. I often can't comprehend what people just said until I process it in my brain several times over. It's like initially what they said is just garbled, alien language. I have to ask them at least twice over to understand it. For some reason I often don't understand ...

Does anyone know of this cognitive / learning disorder?

How I explain this learning / cogntive difficulty is that I have poor eyesight and as a baby, never learnt to understand people by looking them in the face (because I couldnt make out facial expressions). This meant I could only understand people through words and tonality. This continued with glasses. I never learnt that phsyically paying attnetion to peope’s faces was how you understood them and so have never been able to emotionally empathise ...

Wires crossed, short circuiting

Wondering if anybody's ever heard of this. On occasion my husband will think something and think that he's saying it, but he's not. We discovered this because he claims he told me something, but he didn't or he will pick up his conversation with missing information. When we've tried to backtrack and figure out why we're not communicating he will claim he said something that he really only thought.

I've had 2 "grand mal seizures" in march. Wednesday thru Sunday I've had 40 non life threatening "seizures." The first option the doctors provide is cognitive trauma and/or stress. They've been adjusting my meds a lot. I spent 6 years in a highly stressful and childish work environment. I was happy to be terminated because of my physical limitations (back surgery. nerve damage. muscle atrophy) so I was incapable of performing my duties and didn't ...

At the same time of the procedure, 8 years ago, she began to develop severe mental health issues and began to spiral downward after the surgery. We were very alarmed at what was taking place but it felt ...

Error prune thinking.

I can't phrase my problem well, so I have to give an example here.

(a) E21 subtracts 5 times row 1 from row 2.
(b) E32 subtracts -7 times row 2 from row 3.
(c) P exchanges rows 1 and 2, then rows 2 and 3.

The answer to question (a) is straightforward
