Re: Dyspraxic authors

You're very welcome. I see from your Intro that you're studying history. (I did it at A Level but some years ago now!) What periods of history interest you the most, and do you like historical fiction? Any particular favourite authors? Found this on the forum from 5 yrs ago http://www.dyspraxicadult...

Re: cannot think

Hi and welcome Apologies for slow response. Are there any specific things you are struggling to plan? It’s usually worse when you’re stressed and it often becomes a nasty vicious circle where worrying about the things makes it increasingly difficult to think clearly and break things down and begin t...

Re: Dancing!!

Did get roped into going to some Jive lessons down local village hall about 7 or 8 years ago. Was pretty useless but finished the term. Was nice social thing to dry so you may want to give it a go and see.

That's some long hours hoping you get overtime or Flexi but fearing not? Is report linked to an end of financial year exercise? I find can become absorbed and suddenly it's silly o'clock as I've been so absorbed. I sometimes feel I can be too conscientious and clean forgot a lunch break today. I thi...

Re: Driving in a foreign country?

I've heard that Italian drivers don't have a particularly great reputation. If you get a knock or scrape on your hire car it could impact and seriously bump up the cost of your trip. On the flip side you don't know if you don't try and you're the best person to judge your own capabilities to stay on...

Re: Big problems working with data

Hi and welcome. Not sure if you've seen my private message, anyway here are my thoughts. Hope they're helpful. Feel free to question or ask for clarification if they don't make as much sense as I hope they do. I too find it much easier to process data about people and events than I do anything with ...

Re: New to this group - hello!

Hi Sky and welcome I fear that you won't get any more support or understanding if you manage to obtain a Dyspraxia diagnosis, though having confirmation/vindication is important in accepting and moving forwards. Whilst people with Dyspraxia do suffer pain from inter-related and cooccurring condition...

Re: Dyspraxia with hydrocephalus

Hi Helen and welcome to our little corner of the web.

I'm not a neurologist, but I believe it entirely possible the effects and/or degree of impairment could present similarly even if the causes of Dyspraxia and how it affects people are not as well known.

Re: Panel Interviews

. . I'm sorry to hear about your promotion interviews; did they provide feedback as to where you could improve? Yes they did and it was helpful as while I was unsuccessful in both cases, they told me there were parts I was getting right. Someone also informed me that I could ask for the questions t...
