Ok, I am going to go on record amongst my ADHD peers and say it. I effing HATE Algebra. I HATE IT! I HATE IT! I HATE IT!

Given a choice between cutting off my arm or doing algebra I would choose to lose an arm, and I am NOT being overdramatic. I am an inattentive type ADDer, and for me I can not think of one single thing which brings me to infuriating rage quicker than Algebra. I swear that I can't wait to be done with this bull crap. It's not that I don't get it or realize it's importance so all of you math lovers, please I ask you to remain silent on this particular thread. It's just that algebra has ZERO margin for error, and I do NOT function well in anything which requires so much accuracy. It's also not that I am a math phone, because I love math, but algebra is special because its strictly a theoretical discipline. There are no applications for Algebra as an isolated subject. It's only real purpose is to form a common foundation for other mathematical sciences, of which I actually enjoy especially Geometry and Trig. I enjoy Geometry for example because I actually NEED to use it in my life, life for example figuring out how many gallons of paint to buy when I need to paint a room. Algebra has no applications in of an itself and it drives me nuts because there is no ends to justify the means.

Algebra for me is like beating my head in with a hammer. Any other ADDers out there feel me on this?
