Did you ever learn Trig? Calculus is about a thousand times easier to understand if you already understand trig.

Idk about you but I loved going to school, it motivated me to study more and I made friends who helped me study better. I had friends who forced me to study with them lol They became Drs.

I was bullied in school so i dislike it

I had this Moldovian friend who studies a lot and motivated me to study much more with him. He wanted me to go live with him in a university residency to study and become Drs. I refused. He went with other friends and is now a Dr, I congratulated him on Facebook.

My friend at church also became a Dr, cardiologist. Idk, sz made me less smart but I am still smart just not super smart. I am jealous of these friends. One of my friends at college is now a neurosurgeon. He’s Arab like me, we spome in Arabic.

By everyone? I was bullied when I was in a bad school full of drug addicts. But then I went to the best college in my city and wasnt bullied there.

Almost everyone yes

Maybe go to a better school? I think some schools have less bullies. I used to be bullied in bad schools bcz I am an immigrant and an Arab. They called me terrorist and told me to go back to my country. I just learned to ignore them.

My cousin was a bully and he bullied me in school bcz I didn’t fight in fights. I just ignored him. I haven’t spoken to him in the last 10 years.

I see. Wish i knew am i stable or not

I think I was 19 when I learned calculus. It wasn’t easy but I did well. You seem to be ahead of most of your peers. I was behind, but I guess it just clicked and went well and I went with it. You must be smart for your age.

I’m 31 now and I can say I haven’t done calculus in years or did anything much with it except use it on coursera. It helps you think and reason better. I think coding / programming is more useful skill to have right now.

I didn’t learn how to code until my schizophrenia hit at 23 years old. I started with python online.

Schizophrenia ruined my ability to do stuff and think.

There’s easier calculus books out there like calculus for kids or something. Amazon is a good resource as well as khan academy and stuff. I think you will end up doing good if you control your ‘schizophrenia’.
