You are not alone.

From Wikipedia: "Individuals with Northern European ancestry, as many as 8 percent of men and 0.4 percent of women experience congenital color deficiency"

I have read there is a survival of the fittest factor to it. In Northern European forests seeing all colors can be an overload that animals like deer take advantage of with there camouflage. When you get rid of some colors the deer stands out more and you are more successful. When other families go hungry your family is feed.
So many years of programming I have forgotten more languages than I know.
