Re: No one finds a romantic connection with me

Me too. I'm not attractive and am only 5"7, so yeah... it's basically out of the question for me. Heh.

Re: Finding clothing too tight when it actually isn't?

This sounds a lot like symptoms of Sensory Integration Dysfunction, a common condition comorbid with Dyspraxia.

Yeah, it's one of the worst things ever. With this CO2 shortage thing in Europe at the moment, I wonder if we're going to run out of coke. :P

Re: Thought I'd post a bit more of my music

Hi I was listen to your music and songs. I was feel little bit influence of Phillip Glass . I feel this kind of relaxation like when you swimming under water. I like mostly instrumental music cause singing for me destroying background of music. So I more prefer this instrumental composition. I wond...

Re: Why are people so mean

Why are people on here so mean. I posted about me having friends that are 16-18 year old girls on yahoo. They are in my group, I go to college. I have been on a trip abroad with them so what is wrong with actually being kind and hanging out with them when they didn't even have a problem. What do pe...

Average IQ of Dyspraxics

Hey everyone. One thing I've noticed in perusing this forum is that pretty much everybody seems really articulate and clever. I was wondering if this was a trend of note, or if it's just my own biases creeping in to my thought process. I definitely don't consider myself intelligent, just to be clear...

Re: Moderator Wanted

I have no idea if you're still looking for a moderator, but I'm reasonably active here, so I feel that I am up for the task. In terms of why I'd *want* to be a moderator, it's more to just help with running the forum. I don't have an authoritarian bone in me, so it's not like I'd abuse the power, he...

Re: What are you working on?

Dan, I am also (slowly!) trying to learn to code. I'm following a book for C, and also have a book for Python lined up. I've done a fair bit of research of different areas and have spent a lot of time 'hopping between' different languages that I think are best to start first! I would honestly recom...

Re: Do you become less dyspraxic the older you get?

I've definitely improved significantly. I think it's a lot like how a stroke victim's brain rewires itself in order to adapt to deficiencies it has caused. Obviously it's not as serious in our case, but my writing has improved to a partially legible standard. Typing a great deal and playing piano ha...

Wrote a new song and recorded it properly for once

Hello. Thought I'd post this here. It doesn't really have anything to do with Dyspraxia, except to prove that one can play piano, even with Dyspraxia - it just takes more effort. I think we have a habit of putting ourselves down and I would never have started playing had I not met a fellow Dyspraxic...

Re: Keeping Current With Fresh Posts

That's so true. The internet does make it extremely difficult for us to discern the meaning of what is written. That leaves us so very vulnerable to projection. When I first read all of this commotion about a single word ( which was a very innocent incredulous response, not sarcastic) I was just li...

Re: Nursery nurse just diagnosed

I definitely have similar struggles - in fact, I'd say that basically everything you listed here is, at the very least, endemic and fundamental to the Dyspraxic community and identity. I must admit that I'm not totally sure what you mean about difficulties with visual-spacial reasoning, but my assum...

Re: Discord voice chat channel for dyspraxics to practise conversational skills

Like a virtual private group chat where a number of people can chat live online together. Discord is like Skype in that it is a Voice over IP app and was set up/is used by the gamimg community. Could not have said it better myself. If people would like, I can setup a Discord server? If at least two...

Re: Tidying up and messing everything up?

Normally I just struggle with opening the bottle in the first instance, as I tend not to tighten things too much. :) See, that's very sensible! But if I don't tighten the pop bottle, the pop goes flat! Better that the pop goes flat than my hand becomes permanently flat due to me crushing it in the ...

Re: Final uni exams

Hello I am new to this forum. I was diagnosed with dyslexia and dyspraxia 5 years ago. Does anyone else’s dyspraxia get 10 x worse with nerves... I can’t stop falling over, banging in to things and forgetting everything at the moment, my head feels like a whirlwind. I am putting the stress down to ...
