A 12-step program for those traumatized by mathematics?

Just because there is an educational crisis in the way math is being taught, it doesn't mean that we should throw it out, as some of your ranting on the air suggested.
Perhaps you have been emotionally scarred by some terrible math experience, and this has caused you to strike out? Believe me, you are not alone. Perhaps you could help to organize some kind of a 12-step program for people who have been traumatized in their attempt to learn and/or use mathematics.
