Re: Partner with dyspraxia.

I've just got a girlfriend and I have tactile defensiveness and I don't really know how to start hugging her. We just take it slow and she asks if it's okay to touch me before touching me. Also deep pressure is better than light touch. I really want to see if anyone has better advice than me, cause ...

Re: My dyspraxic sister constantly turns the central heating

I hate hot rooms, so in my own room I have the window open, as long as the door is shut. Therefore if it's too hot in the house I retreat back to my room so that it's the right temperature again.

Re: Stress

I also have a teddy, which is very dear to me. Recently I've been dealing with a lot of stress. I'm in my school shooting team and we've got a big shoot coming up against the old boys. I normally hit the target, miss, then keep missing more and more and end up crying. Is there any good ways people k...

Re: anyone into walking hiking camping

I'm currently doing my Gold, I love hiking you can get away from all the noise and problems of life and just relax with your mates! And if you prepare well there's not much pain, so you can just enjoy the scenery!

Re: % of dyspraxics who can drive

I passed my test last week after 15 months of lessons!!! I spent 11 months in a car park, but practice does make perfect- or so they say! The hardest part is judging gaps and speed of traffic, but hopefully I'll get used to it…

School Musical

My friend and I are in the school musical, we're both dyspraxic and we enjoy singing. We thought at first it would just be singing, then came dancing - we've had a laugh so who cares. Then in the dancing came holding hands, then hugs - pushing it. Now they, want us to KISS our partner, my friend and...
