    I just started University and I am studying law.The problem is my early teachers forced me to learn trough "Rote learning" wich is like learning a poem by heart without understanding it.I manage to finnish highschool like this even though I knew it was a problem, wich only made it worse.And now I cant study.I try to study and I can feel the way my brain switches the way it approaches the textbook.I tried to force myself to learn by understanding and it took me 6 hours to learn 1 and a half pages(1,5 out of a total of 55 pages).If I read something in my spare time I can recall most of it, but when I try to study for school,I cant even understand the easy stuff.It s affecting my life a great deal and I believe I am getting clinically deppressed because I started having a nihilistic attitude (no teen angst here.I am in my late 20s and I feel like a total failure and if I cant do well here)
