Re: explaining dyspraxia to family or not?

Yes -sometimes one does not know when to speak and when not to sometime - I just try to accept that folks who do not feel like me may not understand how I feel.

I am pleased not to be the only over sixty bod here. I am 69 for about another week or so.

Re: Lost in Dyspraxia

Welcome alb24.

It took a few years after I suspected Dyspraxia before I had confirmation.

I recognise the concerns expressed and am relived that my dyspraxic daughter has become an independent adult.

I hope posting here will give an outlet for your concerns.

Thank you.

Re: Hello, I'm new

Oh welcome country girl - I was diagnosed when I was 50. I suspect Pete Guest may be interested if you write up your experiences of becoming an agricultural worker - have you seen the magazine he writes? http://www.dyspraxialifemagazine.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/cropped-NEWWW-LOGO-1.png You c...

Re: Chopping and peeling

Good points. Doing things with a child, especially where there is already mutual respect, love and protective caring may also be an opportunity to help a child understand, that even dyspracics are whole people with strengths as well as challenges, like most folk. It must be of use for a growing gene...

Re: Chopping and peeling

I guess like most things the more we do it the easier it gets. I am old and grew up being expected, wanting to help in the kitchen, back in the 1950 s and being expected to stir the whatever it was so it really became natural and most cooking involved raw materials, though we did have custard powder...

Re: Employee of the Month.

It sounds grim - however - by sticking at a job we build a work reputation which can be important when one does find something more suitable.

Well done for persevering (said from the comfort of retirement)

Re: Flying for the first time

Happy landings - it sounds exciting - I have only ever flown as far as Guernsey and Ireland and that was many years ago but overall an enjoyable experience that did not involve passports or secutity checks. We get a lot of news about Stansted Airport on our local BBC News and recently I saw a report...

Re: Vestibular System

I am sorry Jenny I know another dyspraxic who has had similar physical disabilities all his life. These conditions can be complex but hopefully with modern systems on investigation like MRI scans diagnosis is becoming quicker and more reliable and remedies easier to find or at least amelioration. th...

Re: Daily living

Thanks for the enquiry, such difficulties are very familiar to me. I am driven to be a bit better organised when there is something I feel committed to outside of my home. Nowadays, that is rarely more than once or twice a month, but then I bath and shave because I take a little pride in my appearan...
