I agree with your mother. I think it's just a learning disability.

they wont't retest me and i don't want to be anyways i am happy with the score. I just don't like hearing that i have all these other things. I don;t understand how ld can become worse.

I think you should ask about getting retested, just to show yourself that you are smarter than you've been told.

Have you talked to a therapist about it? They could help you work on getting back your feelings of self worth.

I'm sorry that you are really stressed about this, I don't blame you a bit. It doesn't make sense if you have a normal IQ. Who are you having do the testing? What types of tests, etc. are they having you take?
