I really annoy the family at times, because if someone tries to give me verbal directions to a place, give me a list of things, etc. I cannot make any sense of it or retain the information without writing it down.

That wasn’t always the case. I get really frustrated with myself over it.

I’m not the only person with this problem, though.
