Re: Your opinions please re: In a relationship with a man with dyspraxia.

I'm sorry, but from where is that quote taken? If it's from one of mine then you could have least quoted the actual text instead of paraphrasing it and hence altering its context. Although I accept that I could be wrong here, I believe that you have chosen to take an unbalanced view on this. You are...

You're correct.. we're not going to agree.

But that's ok.

Re: me again sorry to annoy you all

What was the reason you couldn't do the cpr training?

If you could find a way to address this, then at least prior experience in support work could beneficial in your application.

Re: Life Expectancy For Dyspraxics

I've never really thought about it to be fair. But I would find it difficult to isolate dyspraxia in relation to a individuals life expectancy. There are just too many other factors to consider.

Re: Your opinions please re: In a relationship with a man with dyspraxia.

Absolutely Tom. I think we need to be careful before we put the onus on any particular individual or group to accommodate or tolerate others. There are in excess of 7 Billion people on earth all whom feel and think differently. The diversity is enormus and it's impossible for everyone to understand ...

Re: I had my driving test today and failed it

The test is as much about phsychlogy and nerves. I think everyone feels a high amount of anxiety on a driving test and unfortunately this does not help your concentration. I actually passed the driving test on my first attempt. That's not to brag, you see quite early on in my test after a couple of ...

Re: single mum with dislexia and dispraxia in serious debt problem need help

Your ex sounds like a bit of a stupid monster if you don't mind me saying. That's not the word I used in my head to describe him :-k I would imagine that personal budgeting is not the best skill for anyone. I don't recall learning about bank accounts, mortgages, bills or debits at school. The way I...

Re: dilema

The advice would be, don't lie.

Honesty. Learn how to turn a negative around to a positive.

Re: feel so disheartened,like giving up

I once got declined by Tesco on account of being and I kid you not 'over qualified'. At the time I simply had my GCSEs and one mesley A level that I only just passed.

Re: Finding a hobby(for dyspraxics!!!)

Personality defines your hobby not the perceived difficulty.

I'm pretty sure we have members here who things like fencing and martial arts which dyspraxia is less than ideal for.

But fun is where you find it.

Re: Your opinions please.

I think sometimes we have to pause for thought. It's all too easy to feel instant offence. For the post which catalysed this conversation, I honestly don't think it was intended to belittle or offend anyone here. It was sharing a bad personal experience with someone who just so happened to be dyspra...

Re: Is my boyfriend treating me badly because of his dyspraxia?

If he's treating you badly it's not because he's dyspraxic. No. For what ever reason at this point in his life he isn't a very nice person but it shouldn't be specifically be attributed to dyspraxia. We dyspraxics can have difficulty in processing information and quite often communicating with peopl...

Re: Not all Doom and Gloom?

I know all too well the longing and feeling of loneliness. But there really is no silver bullet to it. One thing I learnt is that you have to take advice with a pinch of salt. When I listened to other people's advice I found myself propelled into situations that simply weren't right for me. In the e...
