I find a lot of two handed tasks difficult?

Hi everyone I have put a question mark in my title because I'm asking about what it says on the website as I believe this is a big issue for me. I am poor at two handed tasks and always have been. I will give a few examples. I cannot walk and open a backpack zip the same time as holding the backpack...

Do you think a psychiatrist would know about Dyspraxia?

I realise the title is a sort of " You've answered your own question there Lizzie". As I have mentioned that a psychiatrist I saw when I was 14 suggested a slight Dypraxia based on me accidently breaking things. Il try to keep this short and say more in replies. My GP has a copy of my chec...

Re: Touch screen phones

Who else has difficulty swiping these? I tend to swipe too heavily and it takes several attempts for something to happen. I was thinking about this myself last night or the night before when I was trying to draw round text on my phone with my finger. I sometimes under swipe or swipe to vigorously. ...

Anyone else have problems with cutting their finger nails/toe nails?

Hi everyone, obviously through researching Dyspraxia and comparing my own coordination problems I've had a good think about what problems I have. Before having a really good think I didn't consider certain things I have or had as coordination problems. Maybe I just don't grasp the whole coordination...

Re: Folding clothes/paper/towels

Hi, yes I struggle to fold paper exactly right, in fact not too long ago I tried making a cube out of paper which required folding. I lost the sequence of the step by step instructions. Anyway I can fold it if I really really be careful but takes more effort than it's worth for me. I just end up get...

I run quite clumsily aswell, stamping my feet and it echos down the street or wherever I'm running. A heavy footedness I suppose.

Re: Problems sending PM messages to other members

System confusingly files them in your outbox until recipient sees and opens them. Only then do they show as sent. Thank you, I see, I really couldn't understand where the send button was. Unfortunately I've sent the same email 3 times to the person plus one explaining I couldn't reply. Oh dear had ...

Re: Hair care

Hi I know this post is from a while ago but I'd like to add to it and reply anyway. Reading through posts, I also have weak wrists, my body strength in my arms themselves is absolutely fine. The best way I can discribe it is the wrist is getting sore and loose if I am holding an object with one of m...

Problems sending PM messages to other members

Hi I'm not sure where to post this but I would like to know if this is a problem for many users. So I was trying to send a PM reply to a message I received, I tried several times but the messages keep ending up in the outbox going nowhere.

Is there any way to fix this?

Re: Not sure whether this has a name/is dyspraxia related

Hi, it could be worth mentioning it to any doctors you see. I have occasions where I do the same sometimes if I jerk holding something it can hurt. Not sure myself if it has anything to do with Dyspraxia or not. There's times where I've jerked involuntarily and hit my arm or elbow on a door, sometim...

Re: Dyspraxia-walk like a drunk?

Hi, yes I have slight issues with wobbling as I walk. Though with me it's more a slight woddle, I seem to go more onto the left side while walking. I put more pressure onto my left ankle than the right and the right side is lighter and looser as though it's just following the left. I sometimes don't...

My short Dyspraxia story/ how I came to do research and look into

Hi everyone, it was suggested I had a Dyspraxia when I was around 14 years of age. I don’t mean it was suggested that I was at age 14, it was more of a suggestion of when I was younger. This was after the psychiatrist I saw at the time asked about breaking things. At the time she was asking I said “...

Re: Not always understanding things straight away?

Hi Lizzie Hope you had a nice Christmas? This kind of erratic state is part and parcel of dyspraxia and completely 'normal' for neuro diverse folk like ourselves. Sometimes our working memory and organisation of thought take a dip and we'll get confused and flustered and may even enter full on pani...

Re: Dyspraxia and stress - is this normal?

I can relate to this as I've had similar problems with this. A few examples I can give are if something has happened to stress me or upset me I can spend days having anxiety attacks. I can also have days (like today) where I have bumped into objects several times over and over again. My room is gene...

Getting ink over hand and little finger when using pens

Can anyone else relate to the following?

OK since I've been school age when I have been using pens, felt tip pens, crayons etc, I have almost always covered my left little finger in the ink, many times I have also smudged writing as I've gone along.
