Failed my driving test today

It was my first time after 2 years worth of lessons. It's very disheartening when after trying for so hard, I had reached my test and then to fail and fail badly.

If you drive, how did you over come some of the challenges that came with it?

Re: Dyspraxia and diet

I have been talking these (fish oil tablets)for a while :) I figured that it's easy to take them, so i may as well give them a try. Hoping to see some long term results I have also being doing for a while. It's very hard to know whether they are improving things in terms of mental functioning since...

Re: Dyspraxia and diet

I forgot to mention that few members say that fish oil tablets help their mental functioning. I don't know for sure myself. But it does make intuitive sense that good quality fats help the brain to work better. I have been talking these for a while :) I figured that it's easy to take them, so i may...

Re: Dyspraxia and diet

I just saw your other post about the long shifts that you sometimes need to work. I imagine that's a challenge for anyone with or without dyspraxia. This is especially true in a job like nursing where you are on your feet all the time. One major issue is that I think the human body needs some food ...

Re: Dyspraxia and diet

I totally agree with Ram. I find it difficult to understand why soft drinks are so available for those very reasons. Diet-wise, I'm a pretty clean eater. I do a lot of food prep which is laborious at times, but very worth while. Although this is all immeasurable, I believe that it makes a differenc...

Dyspraxia and diet

Hi all -

I was wondering if anyone finds that eating certain foods can help with their concentration/tiredness. At the moment , i always found that having a big breakfast can help me focus for longer.

Can anyone suggest any foods that are helpful?

Re: What is your job?

I'm a student nurse, it can be hugely frustrating and i have had a lot of stumbling blocks along the way. The type of environment i work in can help or hinder my dyspraxia. I hope when i qualify i can work in elderly care, as that seems to be well suited to my needs, it's not too specialised that i ...
