I haven't given up yet, but I know I'm not getting very far.3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.
My dream of learning coding is shattered cuz of this. All I want is a well-paid job where I don't interact much with others. I'm still gonna try, just because I want to so bad, but you do need problem solving abilities for it, as well as intelligence obviously. I don't really have any of that, I am only somewhat decent at math, but literally only basic math, everything else I forgot other than add, subtract, multiply, divide and maybe some other basic concepts (mostly grade school shit). For coding its more of the harder concepts of math, I barely even remember algebra tbh. You also need skills for advanced math topics, as well as problem solving abilities along with it. And this is why learning it is a real challenge for me. Plus I end up forgetting everything.
This is why I dropped out of high school, everything is too hard for me and will only get harder as time progresses. I've noticed over the years that I'm actually retarded.

As someone in the position you want to be, this is unlikely.

This about sums it all up
I have spent the last 5 years learning to code and now have good job opportunities from it. Now I regret all of it and wish I had spent that time doing things I actually enjoy, especially outdoors stuff.

Those don't exist unless you're a boomer who has been working the same job for 30 years. Especially "coders" these days spend more time in meetings than actually coding.
Don't feel bad. The field is so saturated now that it isn't worth learning how to code anymore. Every other "leet coder" is a pajeet. You would be better off finding the new trend that normalfags are just starting to notice and learning that instead.
Curries are taking over the game anyway. If you are not curry then you will not be in the coder caste in the future.
Somewhere in the midst of dumping dead bodies in the shit-filled rivers of Calcutta they decided programming would be a good way to take over 1st world countries. Superpooper 2030
Every single "professional" field is saturated, except things like doctors that require like 50 years of schooling and training. But if one has decent intelligence and is willing to commit their life to their career it's definitely feasible to get into one. Though as a wizard it can be hard as we must learn to emulate normalfag behavior very well. In fact that's probably more important than any other skill.
If you think you can be an programmer who gets paid to sit in a room alone and work on your autistic project, you will be deeply troubled by the reality. In the past it could be done, but that was when software was much simpler. Now even the most trivial apps are a nightmare of complexity which require huge teams of developers constantly communicating just to know what the fuck is going on. That's the reason the field pays so much, not because it involves typing l33t commands into a computer.
