Re: Do you run funny?

Wonder if there's a correlation between dyspraxia and long distance running Maybe. I'm an OK endurance athlete but pretty bad at ball sports. Unfortunately I think I have bad running technique. I was training for a marathon and ended up injuring myself. That was back in 2012, I developed plantar fa...

Re: Most unfavourite inventions

What is my least favourite invention? Well those little lace things that you have to put through holes you punched into paper to tie them all together, I hate them.

Re: Do you prefer specifics, when people ask you questions?

Yeah I much prefer the questions to be specific. I tend to ask and answer questions in a very matter of fact way anyway. If I want something or I'm asking for someone else then I'll ask only about that thing and then walk away, small talk doesn't tend to enter my mind. I think anything but the speci...

Environment/Sound Sensitivity

Ok I just have a quick question. When you have been outside and you come back in, does it take you some time to adjust to the quieter environment? E.G. If I have been outside shopping or something I'll come back home, turn the TV on and put the volume really loud because it feels like I'm still outs...

Re: Does anyone else go through phases like this?

I do go through periods where I am more discombobulated than others. If I'm tired or lots of things are going on or a big thing is going on. I don't know if this is just normal stress and tiredness or dyspraxia though. It seems to come in cycles of every 2 or 3 weeks. I'll just feel useless, like I ...

Re: Taking Things Literally

Hi PoodleLover Finding yourself generally means to find what you like doing and what you don't like doing. What hobbies, what job, the types of places you like going and the kind of people you hang around. E.G. If you spent most of your time going swimming then people would think "oh there's Poodle ...

Re: How do you stand?

Sorry to bump this topic after several months but I realised the other day that when I go to walk I put too much weight on one foot and this leads me to lose my balance, it happens about 10 times a day (or more depending on my level of activity), especially when I go to turn. Is this to do with flat...

Re: Tips for judging spatial positioning?

You could go somewhere where there is less traffic to practice like an industrial estate and then attempt the main roads. Spatial awareness can be really annoying. My driving instructor pointed it out when I was learning and it was the first time I'd ever thought about. Now it seems obvious, and not...

Re: Twitching?

Hi Tak88 I have had tics/twitches from since I was about 10. I haven't been diagnosed with Tourette's or anything else and I am pretty certain I don't have Tourette's. I always thought that my twitches were caused by stress but I read the other week that stress is not a cause for tics/twitching, onl...

Re: You know you're dyspraxic when

Tripping after taking one step or losing balance when standing still. This happens many times a day. Your left leg wanting to be your right leg and visa-versa. Whenever you walk behind people you end up kicking them in the back of the foot. Have to count money at least 5-6 times to make sure you hav...

Re: How do you stand?

Yeah that's exactly what i do, all my weight on one leg. Often when I am standing in one place my knee is bent so I'm kind of always having to lean against something. If I'm not doing that then I am shuffling my feet, shifting my weight or swinging my legs in some way. When I was at school also I us...

How do you stand?

Ok so I have this thing when I am standing in one place and I'll put one foot on top of the other, so essentially I am standing on my own foot. This isn't particularly comfortable and it's not great for posture but it's not painful to do. I'll switch ever 5 mins so that right foot goes over left and...

Re: You know you're dyspraxic when

Chicken, sausages, bacon, vegetables, the lot of it are thawed out, Half the ice gone. I refuse to get angry or blame m...

Re: loosing things

I'm awful with losing things and I always have been. People don't take it seriously you know. They'll think "what are you like" you know, in that way that people do, kind of 'whatever next" kind of way. But it's really really irritating when it happens on a very regular basis because it interferes w...
