I feel like I have a learning disability, because other people read what I read, but they get a different story from it?

In brief: Hard to say

Learning disabilities typically refer to specific tasks such as reading or doing arithmetic that are hard because the brain processes information in inconsistent ways--letter or word reversals, for example.
What you are describing is a much higher level of processing. "different" doesn't necessarily mean "wrong." if it's really a concern, see a psychologist for testing.
