Re: getting along with flatmates

Amy While I'm not exactly qualified to answer this since I live at home myself at 36 I say this very much depends on the flatmates you find and how protective of you they are. In my opinion as a 'conserative' gentleman if placing myself in position of a flatmate , if a lady or gentleman broght home ...

Re: My odd quirks and work - How do I cope??

Thank you Tom I think I am hard on myself and try and stop myself from worrying, but it's hard at times. I've taken up Bikram Yoga to calm my anxiety so far it's working. I really appreciate everyone who's replied as it was worrying me a great deal, and I was dreading going to work.I'll try and be ...

Re: My odd quirks and work - How do I cope??

Hi Euphene I work in an office and don’t generally have to face the general public so all respect for your working in fashion retail. I often feel as though I’m on the outside looking in and feel reluctant to ask for help as explaining what I need and getting right help tend to be two very different...

Re: Outbursts! Anger and fraustration!

You're not alone. Really lots of people have feelings like these and they really can be disabling. Some people try to understand/help and that can be just as painful when you feel it/you are getting nowhere. Often it seems 'they just don't know' but are trying their best for you even though they don...

Re: You know you're dyspraxic when

You know you're dyspraxic when you go to get cash out, put your card and pin, press the amount you want, but walk away forgetting to actually take your cash!!! I've done this twice, the first time someone behind me shouted me and I got my cash, the second time I was not so lucky! I did that someone...

Re: But im good at sports

Always try never to let the fact that you 'have' dyspraxia stop you from trying stuff! Persistance can get you there though if it 'hurts' too much and is soul destroying maybe it isn't for you.You've tried and it's time to try something else. Sorry that's so contradictory! I guess the trick is balan...

Re: But im good at sports

Everyone's different while medical science tries to categorise things/people. I'm a bit of a sport hater though it's probably organised sport I dislike. I try to play badminton not well as far standards go but I wouldn't want to play competively myself that would put too much pressure on me. I was i...

Re: Friends

I'm a pretty likeable type and would say I have lots of good friends who value me as a very loyal friend. However I tend to feel I'm often on the outside looking in and only a few friends get anything like full disclosure of what I'm thinking/feeling as they'd probably be worried or upset as a lot o...

Re: Knowing how perceptive others people are

It maybe weird but I have almost perfect recall for some things which can be quite inconvenient when others don't remember or choose to deny what I recall happening! I guess its down to people being different and our brains remembering different things.We all like and remember things differently we ...

Re: Stress in the workplace... increased symptoms?

Hi there Gypzymoth I definitely find that when I'm stressed my dyspraxic tendencies are more pronounced and vice versa. It's a nasty vicious circle! I'd been managing to keep it together at work and it wasn't really a problem until I found I was being pushed beyond my limits and started blaming myse...

Re: Good Morning Everyone-hello.

Hi Sallya. Welcome to the forum! I've recently been recognised as having some quite dyspraxic tendencies and awaiting assessment and drafting disclosure at present. I'm a bit fearful that even though it would be illegal to use it against me i fear people will treat me differently and I don't like st...

Good Books

Late last-year I read Pandeamonium by Christopher Brookmyre. It was about a group of Scottish School kids who go off on an outward bound trip in an area where the military happens to have opened a gateway to hell. One passage particularly resonated for me and went something like "he was quiet but he...
