I have a blind spot in my brain to algebra. I have tried all sorts of solutions. I cannot read symbols;IE,algebra, sheet music?

You are reinforcing this mistake by telling yourself this. You are doing just fine with the symbolic representation of phonemes (um... we call them letters), and math and music are just other languages with different letters that your brain is perfectly capable of understanding. Like any skill however, it takes practice.

Talk to a doctor or physician about this problem. I'm sure they'll find a solution that could help or work for you. I'm sorry, this sounds extremely frustrating.

It's not hard. For example: 6+x=10. '+' and '-' are opposites and since '+' is being used in the equation, you find the answer by going '10-6=x'. That's a really simple one, but if you can understand that, you should be able to develop the skill just fine.

You need some self motivation! You are a great person (considering I don't know you), and you can achieve this class, if you BELIEVE!!!!!
