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...

Re: Dyspraxia affecting work speed?

MY QUESTION to all of you: Do you think Dyspraxia is the reason why I am slower than other people? From your own experiences/general knowledge of the condition? (P.S. With glass cleaning, I feel I have to look harder as I know I'll miss something, but I always do a thorough job. Does this sound fam...

Re: Favorite Movies with the Theme of Bullying

Haha, if I'd paid proper attention to the previous posts I would have known Good and bad at games was on YouTube! I've now at last seen both this and The Reunion . Good and bad at games is obviously very dated but none the worse for that. I found it intriguing and somewhat disturbing in terms of wh...

Re: Movie characters who might be dyspraxic

I've never seen Local Hero , but I do want to watch it. There only two movie/TV characters that I can think of. I think I mentioned these on another thread. a) John Cox (aka Animal) in Good and Bad at Games . b) Dr Tony Hill in the TV series Wire in the Blood . I'm certainly going to be on the look ...

Re: Vestibular System

Hi Jenny, I've been meaning to write a post on this topic for a while. Your post has prompted me to do this. I have been using a system called Original Strength for about three months. This system is based on a theory that by doing infant movements such as rocking, rolling and crawling, an adult can...

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

I rather like this thread because it's brought together a good range of interests. The main things that I look forward to at the weekend are sailing and kayaking. I also enjoy hiking.

Re: So happy it's not just me!

Welcome. I hope that this site helps you come to terms with everything. I should also point out that Dyspraxia is also known as Developmental Coordination Disorder in some countries. It is also considered to be part of the Autistic Spectrum Disorder by some experts.
