I know I am skipping over much of my growing up years, but that is because they are not relevant to the subject at hand.  Some of the stumbling blocks I ran into as an adult student were overcome by sheer determination.  Math was my worst subject, but to get into a BSN program, statistics was required.  I ended up taking math courses  7th grade level pre algebra all the way through statistics, so several years of math.All was well, and I was an A student until statistics and chemistry.  I could not keep up with everyone else on time tests and was flunking from not being able to finish.   I was scared something was wrong with me, so I went through getting tested for learning disabilities.  While my IQ was deemed very high, I did have a visual processing deficit, and a processing speed deficit.  I got accommodations to take my tests in a quiet room with more time, and improved immensely.  I learned coping skills, and work around to get past these issues, and gained confidence in my ability to do anything I set my mind to.
