Math is a very difficult subject for me. When I see numbers, I freeze! Having lots of information to absorb have never bothered me. Math has always bothered me. I just absolutely hate it.
Math was never my BEST subject, but I found I did quite a bit better in college than I had done in high school; more motivation, I guess...I always found it so comforting after working with subjective classes like English or a Psych class....it was so black and white -- right or wrong, period...it was a bit of a release for my brain...
On the plus side for you, I see this is the pre-nursing forum....the majority of math in nursing is not that difficult once you understand the concept...that being said, we just started doing some more advanced IV math -- ugh!!
When you've got a break, and some down time, I'd highly recommend a book like Calculate with Confidence
to work through before you're in nursing school. With everything else that you'll be learning and expected to do, if you can get some of that anxiety off your plate, you'll be ahead of the game!! If you have trouble working through it alone, see if there's a dosage class or someone who's got a lot of algebra smarts to help walk you through it...it's not that difficult, but I'm also not a good 'reading' learner....I needed someone to "show" me how to do these initially, then I could breeze through them or at least figure out when I had glitch what was wrong....
