Re: That damned cafetiere

Hmm interesting. I keep all instructions for everything and love using them, especially the diagrams. Lately I have been using youtube demonstrations of how to do stuff. If you lose the instructions then a lot of things have the instructions on line. I stay away from sites that aren't either the man...

Re: Talking to people in my head

So, how do you come up with ideas if you don't daydream? Maybe that's why so many people struggle with any kind of original thought? I find at work, when I briefly manage to hold down a job that is, that I see all sorts of areas for improvement. I then suggest them. Next thing people are really cros...

Re: Anybody got Kids

Hi, I've never had an assessment for dyspraxia but do have a lot of symptoms of it. I've been married for 25 years and have three sons. My friend gave me some really good advice for getting married that her mother gave her and it has been very useful. She said to really lower my standards. Hope this...

Re: No job at 26, feel like a failure and that the lack of support I've had for dyspraxia is partially to blame.

Have you been to "evenbreak" ? It is a job site for employers that are positive about disability. I just found a job advertised that I'm qualified for and the employer says they will make reasonable adjustments. I have only just realised I have dyspraxia so haven't yet come to terms with it. I was o...

:ghug: :ghug: :ghug: My counsellor suggested trying hugging myself. I didn't really get that till I read your post. I've only just realised my dyspraxia is a thing. I'm seeing if maybe starting a better relationship with myself (starting with self acceptance) will help with my interaction with the w...

Re: Hey there

Just joined and thanks for sharing. I wonder whether people who don't cry don't feel happiness like we do? I'd hate to miss out on that. I really enjoy food, beautiful views and music, and wonder whether I'd have to give up all that enjoyment if someone "cured" me of crying. And those bank adverts a...

Re: Hi guys, just saying this is me!

Just joined and just read your post. Hoping self acceptance following your diagnosis is helping you as much as it is helping me. Thanks for sharing. A world without people like us would be like a flowerbed without the really good flowers!!!!

Hi Everyone

Just trying for an assessment. Meanwhile, suddenly more accepting of myself, and those around me who it turns out, don't really have ideas like me....Really excited to see how this is going to affect my life.
