Re: Employee of the Month.

I am sorry - but giving up a job without another to start - can end up being more problematic than sticking with a horrible job.

I wish I could help.

Re: Essay Problems

Thanks for posting - I fear not too many may see this. I have not sat a written examination since 1972 - that I can remember and I was decades away from discovering I had dyspraxia. Over the years - though - I have written - lots and lots of professional reports - the time management thing was harde...

Re: New member in distress.

Thanks for posting, Sharing how low we can get can actually help others, sometimes we might even help ourselves. I certainly do get that low and still think of suicide sometimes, but not actively anymore. Professionally over many years I did much work, with those who had attempted or threatened suic...

Does anyone else struggle if their environment is cluttered? I'm finding it harder and harder to cope with stuff and have to tidy up and declutter constantly. Wondering if it's a reflection of trying to keep my brain clutter-free too.
Yes - I am beaten by it and need a solution

Re: Burnout

Is there such a thing as dyspraxic burnout? I mean like there is for autistic people - Aspie burnout. I'm getting dyspraxia symptoms that I've never had before. I do not like the term "burnout" although it does probably describe what happened to me when I was at work - I think after nearly thirty y...

Re: Hello

Welcome Annievh - I believe NOT driving is a positive thing - if you can manage your life without doing so. I regret that back in the 1960s when I got the habit of driving I had not learned that it is more important for a nation and the environment top have good public transport than facilities for ...

Re: GP

I have found trying to get a dyspraxia assessment thru the doctors horrendous. I was referred to go to my GP by my college but I have waited an age for an assessment this way but my cousin is a GP and he said GPs regularly don’t put people thru for a medical referral as the consultants would be inu...

Re: Hi there, I am new!

I agree with that from Tom.

Please keep posting, Mittycucoon it is good to hear from a concerned family member.

I am seventy and discovered mine and my daughter and my mother's Dyspraxia twenty years ago.

It continues to cause difficulties between my wife and I who I met in 1964.
