Is it anxiety or OCD when I need to have everything under control? Like there can't be any possible germs and I need everything to be completely fine?

Hmmm....: Germs and more germs. There are trillions of bacteria in our gut all day long... such as E. coli, Klebsiella, and all sorts of other species. Scientists say there are more bacteria in the intestinal tract than there are human cells in our entire body (we are outnumbered). Life is full of surprises, and most of them don't kill you. Live life. Smile. Don't worry about the little things. ...Read more

Is it true you can be good at math and still have dyscalculia?

Yes: It's said that Einstein was like this. I got quiet far in advanced math but was actually behind my classmates at speed in arithmetic.
