    I recently(3 months) got a job i a shop. was well chuffed as I had no experience in that sector and I wasnt expecting to get the job. My family and friends were really happy for me (probably because they could use my staff discount) anyway, throughout the 3 months Ive been really struggling with certain aspects of the job, like being on the cash register. Ive never been really confident with maths, but it seems that the more I try to get things right, the worse I do. It makes me feel so stupid! I keep thinking that the customers are laughing at me (I mean im struggling to do basic mental math!) Its really embarrassing. My mum knows im not very good with figures, but i dont want her to think the problem is that bad. If I get fired she will know it was because of that (she is an academic)

    Sometimes I feel that i dont deserve to be graduating from uni next year, when my math is this bad. I think uni's should provide ongoing literacy and numeracy help for those students that need it. What can I do to stop me feeling this rotten
