Re: Often feel like I drive people away or I'm really annoying

It seems as though people are quicker to judge me and class me as attention seeking for talking about things or trying to be kind and meet new people than they are to another person who is similar they avoid me but at the end of the day they respect another person for being just as nice and talkati...

Re: Why nothing positive online about dyspraxia?

Perhaps we may over-analyse; perhaps we find it frustrating, but we get through it in our own way. :) This definitely seems to be the case, it has been observed in me by others and I see no need to deny it, the frustration and confusion that I cause myself sometimes is something I'm able to overcom...

Re: Why nothing positive online about dyspraxia?

Not being a conventional person isn't a bad thing in my experience, in fact it can result in you being more creative, imaginative, introspective, thoughtful and generally quite smart as a result. I would say this is a result of not being so constrained by the "mainstream" mode of thought, one is ver...

Re: You know you're dyspraxic when

You can't read your own writing and are rubbish at team sports. I was writing something in a diary today and when I looked over it again it was barely intelligible, and neither could I ever understand team sports, partly because I never understood rules and instructions and partially because I neve...

Re: I don't get on with people my own age

I used to feel more comfortable around older people, however having mixed with people I realised it was because I have interests that people who were older than me had and that older people were more tolerant of my social quirks. While growing up I encountered people who didn't fit the conventional...

Re: Connecting

This forum is interesting, as more and more, I discover the camaraderie us Dyspraxics share as personality quirks. I am definitely similar in that I feel more comfortable around fewer people, being absolutely terrified when performing on stage, case in point: https://youtu.be/zx1cmaz1OMA Still, it ...

Re: I don't get on with people my own age

I am exactly the same. One of my best mates is over 60, in fact. I have always felt myself more mature than my age group in some ways and less mature in others, exacerbating the problem. The thing you say about maturity certainly seems to be the case, it's bizzare, I seem to be very mature in some ...

Answering the phone?

Am I the only person here who's cautious about answering the telephone? Especially if I don't recognise the number which is most of the time. I don't really like using phones that much especially if it's to talk to someone I don't already know that well, it creates anxiety in me as I'm never quite s...

Re: Experiencing frustration

I sometimes feel like when I mention my learning disability as a reason for doing certain things that people think I'm either making it up or trying to use it as a trump card. This is causing me frustration because all I'm asking is that people understand that I'm much more susceptible to make mist...

Re: Experiencing frustration

I often reason that there's an even chance I won't be able to find the bloomin pad again if I do write it down! Indeed! And when I find it again it's usually on the floor somewhere or scrunched up in my bag. Once at work my phone fell out of my pocket and it was pointed out to me by someone that it...

Re: Experiencing frustration

It can really be annoying when we are asked to do something and we put a lot of effort into doing it and the person who we helped out, can only find things to moan and complain about. My strategy has pretty much always been to ensure I clearly understand what the desired end result is and to seek c...
