Re: Keeping Current With Fresh Posts

Seriously?? That response comes across as a sarcastic attitude of disbelief to my previous post if I understand you correctly. I was honestly doing my best to respond to your original post. You are more than welcome to disagree with me or any other responses. But your treating of forum members who ...

Re: Happy St Patricks Day

I'm not Irish but know we have people from there though my wishes were late if you go by Forum time. There is a school of thought that a young St Patrick was picked up from the banks of the Severn and transported to Ireland as a slave, so it could be claimed he was from Gloucestershire. St George w...

Re: Do any of you have weak ankles?

I definitely had weak ankles as a kid. I was always reprimanded by my parents for walking with my toes in like a pigeon. But really that was dealing with the symptoms rather than the underlying cause. As well as weak ankles, I have rather floppy joints everywhere. Nevertheless, I like to think that ...

Re: Keeping Current With Fresh Posts

I don't post that often. One reason is that I have an internet addiction and I have to rationthe amount of time I spend online. Some people on this site are also dyslexic as well as dyspraxic, so they might not be able to write quickly. One suggestion I have is that it would be beneficial to have a ...

Re: Article about inclusivity in Physical Education

I definitely think Ms Curling is making a positive move. One irony I always felt about PE at school was that it did not live up to its title of Physical Education:- in other words, the classes were not focused on developing the bodies and health of ALL pupils. Instead, they seemed to be more about t...

Re: Dyspraxia and N(V)LD

I have never considered myself as having ADHD but mild ADD does seem to fit. To some extent all of ASD,dysgraphia,dyspraxia and NVLD fits. I'd never heard of NVLD until reading your post. I inderstand that people with NVLD actually have excellent listening skills if this video from the National Cen...

Re: Dyspraxia and N(V)LD

According to https://psychcentral.com/quizzes/adhd-quiz/ Results of Your Adult Attention Deficit Disorder Quiz You scored a total of 21 Inattention Subscale: 16 Hyperactivity/Impulsivity Subscale: 5 I've just done the same test. My scores were as follows:- ADD total: 39 I...

Re: Friendship/relationship advice

Having reviewed it more and after reading what both you have said, I feel it was mainly because I feel pressured in to finding someone as i am now in to my twenties and most other people i know have someone in their life. I have often felt pressured by society into having someone. It's a really str...

Re: Asexuality and Dyspraxia

Hi all. I thought I would post this in relationships, but reconsidered, as it feels like a more general thing, rather than being explicitly connected to dating. I have always felt kind of odd, because I had significantly less interest in sex (read: none) than my friends. I like to kiss, cuddle and ...

Re: Friendship/relationship advice

The delicate topic of human relationships, romantic or otherwise, is always a tough thing to advise on because it's never a black and white issue. However, I'll give you my opinion, as a 50 something with a few failed relationships behind him. Reading between the lines, it seems to me that just mayb...

Re: Dyspraxia affecting work speed?

I haven't had a manual job for over 20 years, so my difficulties are well and truly past me. I went back to university at rather a late age and my life blossomed since. I think a lot of dyspraxics benefit from sticking out the education system for as long as they can, so that they can get into work ...

Re: Fish oil and gluten free diets?

I have backpedalled on this subject in the last few months. I read a few months back in an alternative health care book that fish oil intake is associated with development of diabetes. My high intake of fish oil may have been the reason for the prediabetes that I had a while back. Since coming off t...
