Re: Just need some help please?

Hi people who use this website. I am now 45, diagnosed with Dyspraxia about 9 years ago, have IBS, haven't worked since my dad died 7 years ago. I have along with my husband tried for children for over 6 years with no luck, so asked to see my hospital notes since we were told we couldn't have child...

Re: working long hours

I agree with Lucy's point. Don't feel obliged to work long hours like others if it potentially means you will make more mistakes that then plague you for the rest of the evening.

The Phantom or the Duvet Defeated?

I usually climb into my duvet cover in order to place the top corners and do the potentially hazardous dance of the duvet cover ghost. This fun way may be over and the Phantom of the Duvet Cover banished

Re: Lexxic

The other option might be Access To Work a Government Scheme that might meet some ot all of the cost of assessment and/or reasonable adjustment.

Re: I’ve just been diagnosed.

Hi Sprocket and welcome It's a difficult qyestion to answer as people tend to have co-occuring conditions so it is pretty much impossible to say what is directly or indirectly related. Also Dyspraxia is complex and very few people present the same way. Fatigue seems to be quite common as we often ha...

Re: Problem at new job, help?

Sounds like an absolute nightmare and feels like you were very much dropped in at deep end to deal with multiple customers all intent on getting what they want. Anyone would be overwhelmed if they'd not had to do it before. So how was your manager in the 1to1? Did he /she recognise that serving food...

Actually I was a fish out of water with some of the questions at quiz I went to last night. I suspect after ruling out CP and other potential causes all Great Ormond St Drs might have had le...

Re: Will Britain be able to make a sucess of Brexit?

I feel we still need to be in tent pissing out (or working with our Continental neighbours) than outside trying to **** in (or off) these neighbours. The EU certainly has its flaws but it all smacks of storming off and trying to take the ball. There was so much disinformation. Anywhere else online,I...

Re: Acquired dyspraxia

Who was the person and what were their qualifications and reasoning for suggesting acquired dyspraxia? In theory effects indicative of 'acquired dyspraxia' might also be borne of any illness or trauma that interferes with brain functioning/nervous system functioning though in many cases it might tha...

Re: Employee of the Month.

'Lazy' is your impression and whilst that may be fair assessment maybe she is completely demoralised and views role in a similar way to yourself and or has other difficulties outside of work? Assuming you have concluded that threatening to resign or just quitting is unlikely to result in any positiv...
