Q: C'est un truc handicapant pour moi au quotidien

Is the translation below correct? Can you use "crippling" to refer to having a bad memory and directions?

It's something crippling in my daily life


A: Crippling is a very strong word in English. Crippling pretty much means you can't do something.

Her fear of public speaking is crippling, she will never be able to be a politician because of it.


I think you mean "sense of direction".

- What direction are we facing?
- I don't know, I have a terrible sense of direction

- Do you remember how to get back to the parking lot?
- Of course not, you know I have a terrible sense of direction


So your translation could be good depending on how big of a problem it is.

It's something I struggle with in my daily life
It's something I struggle with on a daily basis
It's something I struggle with in my everyday life

It's something that causes a lot of problems for me in my daily life
It's something that causes a lot of problems for me on a daily basis
