Re: Hi. New here.

Hi Catrin Happy New Year and welcome. Sorry to read of your struggles. All too sadly it is not unusual. It never helps when we feel rubbish about ourselves as sadly some people are just completely unsympathetic and lack empathy. While awareness of Dyspraxia is better,there iare still miles to go in ...

Re: Burnout

We too are sensitive to sensory overload. I think being big picture thinkers we see the whole lot and forget we need to break things down and tackle one task at a time not panicking amd trying to do them all at once.

Re: Hello

Hi Annie and welcome I don't drive myself, principally because I have a visual impairment that pecludes it. However,I do get the feeling some people do regard non-drivers as somehow 'not normal'. I think that if you don't want to or particularly need to, you can save a great deal of expense hassle a...

Re: ASD and dyspraxia- how much are they related?

This voice stinks and has clearly died. I need the coroner and the speech pathologist!

Re: ASD and dyspraxia- how much are they related?

I'm inclined to agree with him on first point, (lot of ill informed BS online **** Information or Shinfo) He probably could made his point better or differently. He demonstrates limited knowledge of others' experience with Dyspraxia and the tone of his post could be construed as non-accepting of dis...

Re: explaining dyspraxia to family or not?

Agree your Mother and Sister's notion is at least crass but maybe they feel that your being occupied is tried and tested way to help you be content?
