  •  I have trouble keeping track of the exact amount (7+ / 0-)

    even with a calculator my dyscalculia gets in the way of keeping a running tab while I shop, I invariably switch a number around when entering it, or forget I entered something and entered it twice, etc. But I've developed a gut feeling for it, sometimes I'll just start putting stuff back "don't really need this right now, this can wait, nope not buying that today.... " And usually I'm right and we're either still slightly over or just under when we ring it up.
    I have very little embarrassment using food stamps, I've worked most of my life and paid taxes. My dad works and has worked, my grandfather worked, my mom works, etc. It's when I get there and find out I don't have enough to get everything I need that I get embarrassed.
