Re: Afraid that my dyspraxia will destroy my dream

Thank you for your advices, both of you :) I have to look at that xtraordniary people-site! Perhaps it can pep me during hard days.

Help: no one knows about dyspraxia

Last week I started my assessment to find out if I have dyspraxia. The psychologist was really nice and she realized that my difficulties are causing huge problems for me in my daily life, especially when it comes to work and studies. She said she would try to help me to get the right help, but ther...

Re: dyspraxia and the call centre

I had two weeks of trial and in the beginnig the boss was satisfied because he thought I sounded good on the phone. But, after a week it was...

Skewifty

I read about the symptoms of "skewifty" and I feel that it really is me, but what is skewifty more accurate? How do you explain it with another word? I have looked up the word in a dictionary but there is no Swedish equivalent. Therefore, I would find another English word to make it easier for me to...

Afraid that my dyspraxia will destroy my dream

I have started a new training today, a one-year television journalism training that I looked forward to a long time. The school seems great, the teachers I've ever met are nice and we are a small class of six people and everyone seems nice. Yet it feels as if everyone can see that there is something...

Abnormal walk style as a child

Is there anyone else out there who had an abnormal walk style as a child? I had big problems to coordinate my movements. When I went I automatically leaned my back forward and my arms were drawn back. Sometimes people looked at me so my parents used to tell me to right up my back and to hold my arms...

Re: Hair care

I have the same problem. I can´t use a straightener, I always burn my ears or my fingers. I wish I could make some nice hairstyles but I can only make a hairstyle with fringe or a "ball" at the top of my head. The last thing is difficult, but I usually make it if I do it slowly and if I have a lot o...
