No, you aren't stupid! I hate math very much and I was able to finish 50% at the PhD level. My undergrad BS required one math course. Somehow, I got through it and went forward with a field that seldomly required math. Einstein couldn't figure out how to balance a check book.

Well - where to begin - we know you are 26 years old. You aren't good at doing even simple math in your head. It may be a problem with memory or with how you process mathematical ideas. Do you have problems in other areas? The question would be who to go to to try to diagnose the problem. Here's what I would suggest. See a speech pathologist. They diagnose various learning disabilities. If the problem is not in their area, they can tell you where to go to have the problem properly diagnosed. No, it doesn't sound normal. It does sound like you are having some kind of a problem. But it's hard to say what the problem is from here without more information. I have worked with adults who were illiterate, how could not read. They just never learned to read and were able to function in society, although not too well. Often they had their children read something to them if they couldn't understand it. You seem to be having similar problems with math. But that can be from a number of different reasons. It could be memory, it be you're just not interested. Math is something that you have to work out. Maybe you could use flash cards for some skills. You could buy blank cardboard and make your own flash cards. See a speech pathologist and I think they can help you find the right person to diagnose your problem. Either a speech pathologist or a psychologist. They would know would be best to help you.
