Re: new stressful situations

It's natural to feel stressed by certain things and easy to look back and beat yourself up for instances where you feel as though you handled things badly, panicked, shouted or broke stuff and stormed off which can make you feel very angry and ashamed. Instead try to think about what you did well an...

Re: Help for adults

Yeah

I think even if you're able to adapt, it still has a strong tendency to return especially during stressfull and difficult phases, sometimes with a vengance.

There is precious little if any assistance for adults unless you ho for mon specific help like counselling if you can find it.

Re: Hello

I know that a number of yrs ago now the RCN produced a booklet about supporting employees with Dyslexia Dyspraxia.
I think it also often comes down to how patient and supportive your manager and colleagues are.

Fact it's moving probably doesn't help. I always hesitate a little when stepping on to a downwards one.

Re: The Underground

Sounds a bit silly and somewhat cruel to say don't have a panic then veto your suggestions of stations which you believe will enable you to avoid the escalators.
Did you have a past nightmare experience with one or have read or been told about a horrific incident?

Re: Anybody got Kids

Some would say lowering standards is cynical advice but I guess it’s born of self preservation to an extent in that people can and do change let you down or disappoint. On the other side of the coin you have to be careful of putting someone on a pedestal as they may feel uncomfortable and worry they...

Re: Texan Dyspraxic

You’re welcome. Thanks for the Interesting story and I guess it shows we can potentially all find a place for ourselves though the journey may be long and difficult with many pitfalls along the way. Maintaining faith that you will come through is always the hard part.

Re: Employee of the Month.

Would imagine there are a lot of people who would object to cleaning a smoking area but under the terms of your contract can you refuse? Is there an opportunity to get a standing about job and can I get one? Actually I find I need to be doing something all the time at work so it would drive me to di...

Re: Intense Intolerance

A lot of people don't really know what to say or how to say it so may try to fill silence with inane smaĺl talk. You could indulge them with a full run down or just say I had this what did you have? Now **** or get off the pot. I find I have a tendency to put things off if I am worried or vexed by t...

Re: Are There Any Other Americans On this Site?

Heated debate is good 8-) If at least some of those taxes we pay go to helping to provide a safety net for those who are less fortunate is that not a good thing? I think the Us and Them causes unfair friction between the haves and have nots and but for the grace of god we might find ourselves needin...

Re: Anyone need mobility aids?

Sorry for late reply We’re all affected differently and may also be affected by other non related or indirectly related conditions. I think this question might be better answered by an OT and/or your GP or possibly a Podiatrist

Re: Texan Dyspraxic

We’re Pleased to Welcome you here to our site/community. Do Beware some of us here are heathens (but I don’t bite much). I find people tell me all sorts as I’m fortunate in that I seem to be able to put people at ease and try my best not to judge but to try to understand the other persons perspective.
