Re: explaining dyspraxia to family or not?

Agree your Mother and Sister's notion is at least crass but maybe they feel that your being occupied is tried and tested way to help you be content?

Re: explaining dyspraxia to family or not?

Seeing as though they seem a bit in awe of you, you cd put it as simply as I"ve discovered there is a condition that accounts for my clumsy and disorganised state all these years and was probably the reason why I found nursing training difficult and quit. People with this condition can still achieve...

Re: explaining dyspraxia to family or not?

Difficulty is other people rarely say anything that is entirely in tune with how we see things.

Have you gently pointed out to them that given you're in your early 60's, now is harddly time to be starting a career in medicine as a physician?

Re: I have dyspraxia and I struggle with maths

Hi Tash and welcome

I had to retake GCSE Maths twice myself. I possiblywould have got on better with my science studies if my maths knowledge hadn't let me down.

It might be worth exploring whether you might have some degree of Dyscalculia too.

Kirsty
Thank You. It's not as if I have to pay as I'm a DSE user so can get a voucher to pay for eye test, and towards any prescription too.

Re: explaining dyspraxia to family or not?

Is it a generational thing or merely just those that don't have to contend with Dyspraxia, will naturally take the stance that it's 'not a real thing'? You could take the fact that they still feel you should consider Med School as belief in you, and high regard of your intelligence, even if the idea...

Re: Lost in Dyspraxia

Welcome All too often we're harder on ourselves as a 'strategy' to try to avoid judgement of others. It can be a struggle and confusing about when you can/shd give a s#$t about what others' think as they are being constructive. I think that given our long memories we are rately apt to repeat mistakes?

You'll see from looking at posts here that we're a pretty diverse lot and our condition(s) present in different ways. We face different challenges with all kinds of tasks so it can be hard to define what' a...

Re: Will Britain be able to make a sucess of Brexit?

So is Theresa going to be defeated and ousted?

I both feel sorry for and have a degree of admiration for her. Feel she should shut Jacob Rees Mogg and Arlene Foster up in the Tower but what if they produced the spawn of Satan during their confinement Eek!

Re: Hello, I'm new

Hi Sarah and welcome

I grew up in rural Glos with parents who met at agricultural college (Hartpury). We had chickens and a goat and a few sheep and some of my friends work in agriculture. I also went to a few YFC events.

Re: Piano/Anxiety Tips

Hi Tony and welcome.

I'm regrettably not very musical myself but we have had the subject of playing the piano discussed before.

If you search the forum there are about a hundred hits for piano

Hope your exam went much better than how you feared it might?
