fear of math

Numbers frighten me.  Mathematical formulas Scare me.  As soon as I encounter something that resembles math, my mind shuts off and goes elsewhere.  Why?  I wasn't bad at math as a child I don't think.  Maybe I dislike it because it has finite and definite right and wrong processes and answers.  I don't know.  But I need to get over it if I'm going to continue learning to program.  I'll be going along, solving some problems (after a dozen tries) and start to feel good about it, but then the next page starts talking about math functions and data types and operations and I freak out and have trouble concentrating or even reading what's going on.  I just don't follow.  I get discouraged.  The pride of having conquered one task without help evaporates like rubbing alcohol.  Meh.

In good news, I lost an inch off my waist and hips (an inch each)!  *glee*

I'm still broke.  I'm kinda bored.  The roommies are gone for the weekend and my usual solitary pursuits are limited because I tweaked my shoulder this morning lifting weights and the arm doesn't want to be used.  It isn't exactly painful, (nothing is damaged) but it aches some and I'm a wimp sometimes.

Baby steps don't seem like progress until you look back over your shoulder and see how far you've come.
