Re: Do any other Dyspraxics get mistaken for Gay?

I'm a genderqueer pansexual and get mistaken for a straight girl. So I suppose you could say I have the opposite problem u_u

Re: What are the 3 things you struggle with most...

Hmm... I'd say memory, organization, and fatigue, which seems strange given that dyspraxia is technically a motor disorder at least in classification, but, I suppose it is what it is. I haven't technically started work just yet, but at college, the biggest deal was and is definitley organization and...

Re: Myers Briggs Personality types

I'm an INFP, though pretty borderline with ENFP depending on the test. The rest of it is consistent though.

Re: when can we have a dyspraxia awareness day?

as pouvik said, i think its best to spread awareness ourselves; although a little help wouldn't go amiss, self-advocacy is a powerful thing. unfortunatley, given the opinions of the autistic people i personally know on the matter, ~autism awareness month~ is mostly a right load of bs dedicated more ...

Re: By eck! A decent news clip on Dyspraxia.

Another clip supported by Fixers, This is done by a young lady called Abi, it's very personalized but no less relevant because of it. http://youtu.be/ssfbXEc3tKc ....I think I went to secondary school with her. The name and voice rings a bell, and we're from the same area, though without seeing her...

Re: Does Dyspraxia relate to Personality Disorders?

However, I am wondering what BPD really means. Is it like cancer, a catch-all. Beatrix, did your doctor say more when you were diagnosed? Like a lot of personality disorders, BPD describes quite a few different things that feed into eachother rather than one specific thing, but the basics (to the b...

Re: Dyspraxia and smiling

For me its the other way around; I always sort of half-smile no matter how I actually feel, because I find it (pshycially) uncomfortable to make a lot of other facial expressions. I think its a muscular thing.

Re: A mother asking - WHAT WORKED FOR YOU?

I'm not sure, because the only subjects I really struggled with were maths and PE, and I dealt with them by the good ol' route of "don't even bother". Though, I will say I always found it easier to learn things in my own time by my own choice, rather than in a class- I'd look up things I found inter...

Re: Does Dyspraxia relate to Personality Disorders?

Hey, MDS. I think the answer 'does dyspraxia relate to personality disorders' is very much a thing which depends on the person, but it is absolutley possible for a person to have both, if that is what you are worried about. I am actually in a fairly similar situation to you, though my symptoms are d...

Re: Can't work out IN MIND how to do something?

To me personally, this sounds like a kind of executive dysfunction, or something related to it- to be specific, a cognitive deficit in planning and sequencing - if it isn't visuo-spatial. Essentially like when you your flat is a total mess and you look around like "yes okay I need to clean but where...

Re: Empathy and empathetic

Yeah, I can definitely relate to this. I pick up on emotional states, intentions, the atmosphere of conversations and places... almost too much so, I'll pick up on the pain of total strangers on the street, though fortunately I have the social grace not to immediately run to them to play therapist. ...

Re: Little experiment; What do you all do?

I'm definitley creative- I draw, paint, write, design websites and am currently working on an indie game, and also have a very vivid imagination, such that I invent characters and stories in my head whenever I have nothing else to do. That's really just a part of my personality, and has been for lit...
