Re: Could dyspraxia be caused by stress?

No. General cognitive ability is impaired by stress, some of the symptoms of which could mimic any condition, but no dyspraxia is not caused by stress

Re: Family don't understand me

I tried some years ago to tell my family about my ADD and my dyspraxia. They never got it, and never will. I don't bother anymore, and they've dismissed/forgotten it. I don't bother trying anymore. It can be a very lonely place.

Re: The Dreaded Team Building Exercise!

I used to be completely overwhelmed by such exercises. very anxious that they would call for something I couldn't do well and that I'd be publicly embarrassed. Still am

Re: Dyspraxia Awareness Week

I never heard of a dyspraxia awareness week before in my life. I am wondering why all of the literature and online information appears to be so advanced in the UK as compared to the US?

Re: Doctor Who

I think it was really great that the show went as far as they had to promote an introduction to dyspraxia, especially considering the nature of the show which is for entertainment, not education.

Re: New doctor who companion will have dyspraxia

I finally got to see 'Doctor Who' because I was staying with a relative who gets BBC on her TV. While I don't care for the show at all, I thought it was really cool that they portrayed a character with dyspraxia. I'm glad that public awareness is being heightened and certainly hope this is a continu...

Re: Dancing

Reminds me of physical education class. I have never been able to perform tasks that require coordinated movement and steps. When I see people on TV doing it, I am in awe of it but also feel sad that I know I would never be able to pick up something like that.

Re: metabolic disorders

I think it is an addiction for me as well. It was easier to deal with when I was young and able to push myself to lift weights. I was also on Adderall for ADD back then and that always lit a fire under my butt. Now I can't tolerate Adderall anymore, and I am back to my usual sedentary self; fighting...

Re: Why are people so mean

you're right, 100% correct. we live in a very cynical world. as long as you know that you are not doing anything wrong, don't worry about what others think. particularly when they are strangers.

Re: Problem at new job, help?

Well, I can't tell you what to do; that's up to you. However, if they have made an accommodation for you that works, I would take it. People forget about stuff very quickly, mostly because everyone is self-involved. They all worry about their own issues and just getting through the shift. At least t...
