Re: The Underground

If I were you, I’d veto their veto.

Honestly.. how ridiculous. Fancy forbidding someone to panic? I’d return the compliment and forbid them to be a knob.

Re: Public transport

I’m generally ok with it. But I do tend to plan it all first and do my research which helps a lot.

The Paris train station was a nightmarish maze though.

Re: Answering the phone?

I'm in an office/admin job now where I don't answer the phone or make calls very often. When I do, I feel like everyone is listening and waiting for me to say something stupid. It's the unpredictability of other people that makes it so hard I think. At least with an email you can take your time to ...

Re: Hair

It’s been a very long time since I had my eye in my eyes and that isn’t simply thanks to short haircuts. I’ve been thinning out ever since I got into my 20s.

Now I’m heading towards my 40s.. have very little left on top 🤣

Re: Is Anyone Sensitive To Noise or Odors?

I do get over sensitised quite easily. For me the triggers are people noise, crowds and to a lesser extent smells. I hate people noise. I really do struggle cognitively to make sense of people noise. It’s although my brain is very slow to interpret speech. People without knowledge of these condition...

Re: Should this forum have a paralell Facebook Group?

I don’t know if anything like the old msn messenger exists anymore, but if it does it could potentially be a more cost effective way to have live text chat. Ultimately, if you wanted to. You could have both. A FB presence (perhaps with a closed group) and a chat room type thing to include the non fa...

I’d be part of it.

Re: Finding a hobby(for dyspraxics!!!)

I personally have relatively few hobbies or at least things I do often enough or long term enough to qualify them as such. I do like motorsport though, particularly F1 (for all its faults) and this is probably the only single thing that I’ve followed with a passion since the inception of my interest...

Re: News article

Better than nothing but as soon as I saw the line “So what is dyspraxia, what are the symptoms and how common is it? Here's everything you need to know“ I was thinking, well yeah... good luck with that.

Re: Dyspraxia Learing to drive

We dyspraxics tend to give up easily because of our history of difficulty with learning new things and the humiliation that caused. It's not easy. Hmm, I don’t think I agree. I usually found that a sense of determination stops me from giving up until after I’ve exhausted every last bit of resilienc...

Re: I fear that my Dyspraxia will affect my future job

Telesales /work in callcentres is readily available as there is often a high turnover of staff. Not for me as would do my head in personally but some people have the aptitude and desire for it. I just don't think I could enjoy it personally. Some people here have tried. I believe people are general...

Re: Is my daughter Dyspraxic?

Apart from general difficulties with her motor skills there is relatively little information in there to judge. Being untidy isn’t really a fair pointer towards dyspraxia. The fact that she herself has recognised things within herself and researched it leading to her suspicion about a hoarding disor...

Re: Driving in a foreign country?

I would suggest perhaps a road trip to France first. And stay away from bigger towns and cities. This would at least give you a feel for the other side of the road so to speak and of the autoroutes.

It’s a bit, shall we say ‘compact’ in Italy and it can be quite manic.

Good luck.

Re: Dyspraxia doesn't define me but it does affect me....

Hi and welcome. Awareness of dyspraxia amongst the wider general public tends to be on the low side. It’s inevitable that people can be dismissive of the ‘small’ things which we may struggle with that they’d possibly take for granted without much thought. It can get depressing. As frustrating as it ...
