They didn't tell you until you were 17 because you have excellent coping skills. It's not like they were intentionally keeping it a secret. Most people with learning disabilities have high IQ's. I say that as someone who was diagnosed as being both dyscalculaic & dyslexic . . . when I was 18 and a freshman in college. I also have an IQ of 135 and my mom is a retired teacher. Trust me I have heard her do the 'woe is me, I should have known' routine countless times. She needs to get over it and so do you. It's not the end of your world. If anything, it could be the start.

my mom blames herself on us kids too. its what they do sometimes.
