Wow, this bums me out.

Thank you for sharing though. It's just good to know that none of us were alone in what we went through. I really hope that 20+ years later things have improved, but I don't really know.

I identified with a lot that you guys shared; one memory that came back to me was that I was voted "most studious" out of the senior class. They created that category just for me and they didn't pick a male to get the same title like they did with everything else. Ironically, I never studied. Maybe they gave it to me because I was the only one who ever did the summer reading for AP class (maybe b/c I actually wanted to get the AP credit??). I too wasn't familiar with actual study habits or skills but found in college I didn't need more than a 45-min cram before an exam. I wouldn't call it a photographic memory but I have something like that. So I could just spend a few hours in the library during exam week and cram everything. I forgot most of it, though, unless it was important to me.
