Subject: work issues, need advice

I am 37 y/o with a learning disability.It's been a long journey to say the least. I struggle with memory issues, math issues,(can't do it is the issue). Even when I use a caculator. Anyways, I been through mannny jobs over the years,I currently am working in the medical field. I have stuck with this field inspite of my struggles. I know I can do it. I have done it before. I work with people who are not supportive, they make comments about things I have done"according to them" as incorrectly or just not how they would do it. Point is I am self conscious now and it is making things worse. I am constantly messing up,I have had responsibilities taken away from me. I need this job,I feel so worthless though there and they do know I have a LD but they don't understand and instead of finding ways to help me out there attitudes are just making things worse. I feel like just quitting! So fusterated! Sorry for the spelling errors,lol!!
