Re: Are There Any Other Americans On this Site?

I'm not aware of any support with the exception of dyspraxia USA which is Chicago based. Alas, the US is not very advanced in this area. let's hope this changes

Memorial Day and Dyspraxia in the US

Well, it's Memorial Day Weekend in the US, the holiday where we celebrate those who have served in the military and so TV is loaded with special programs about veterans, and for the first time that I can remember, we're only going back to the 60's, presumably because most of the WW2 veterans have be...

Re: How to study

I always had that problem as well. I saw a psychiatrist, and he had prescribed some medication that had helped at the time, though it no longer does. It did, however, get me through school.

Re: Are There Any Other Americans On this Site?

It's not likely; the Republicans are firmly in power, they will not impeach Trump. It's not the same as it was in the 70's with Nixon. These people have no integrity

Re: Looking after a house!

I think one could literally spend every moment cleaning, scrubbing, washing clothes, etc. I recently had to take a couple of weeks to care for my mother and literally could not keep up with any of it. She does a much better job than I do and she's 90. Next time instead of dyspraxia, I'm going to req...

Aversion To Bright, Warm Sunshine

I have this aversion to bright, unfiltered sunshine particularly on warm summer days. Some of my most uncomfortable days are the days when most people say, "wow, what a beautiful day!!!" Like a vampire, I can't wait to get back into the shade of the house. When I was a kid, people used to ...

Re: Manual Labour and Dyspraxia

well, I don't know what to say other than I've always been the same. I'm so sorry you're going through this; it's not easy having everyone dislike you because you're not well coordinated. When I was your age, I took a job in a nursing home, not knowing anything about dyspraxia, much less that I had ...

Re: Keeping Current With Fresh Posts

That's so true. The internet does make it extremely difficult for us to discern the meaning of what is written. That leaves us so very vulnerable to projection. When I first read all of this commotion about a single word ( which was a very innocent incredulous response, not sarcastic) I was just li...

Re: Keeping Current With Fresh Posts

Wish I could think of more American words that could stimulate such controversy and back-and-forth witty responses.
No, seriously for now on I'm going to check with the British consulate before I respond to any posts, LOL.

Re: Keeping Current With Fresh Posts

I don't know that one can compare spoken dialogue from a TV show with written text. The latter has no facial expression, no tone or voice inflection, etc. Therefore it might be good idea to ask for clarification when in doubt. I do, however find it interesting that just one little word could elicit ...
