Re: Friends vs being on my own

I like being on my own, a lot. I like being able to do things on my own at my own pace, undisturbed. There's no people to stress me out and I don't have to act like I'm 'normal'. Feel exactly like this, last year I made a decision to completely isolate myself and its worked a treat, for example I n...

Re: Eating Spaghetti

I never realised till very recently when I went to some friends who provided fork and spoon for eating spaghetti. Basically you put the tines of your fork into the bowl of the spoon which greatly helps when trying to wind the stuff around your fork. I've known this from a very young age and it's qu...

Re: Bullying at work

I myself often experience the obligatory exaggerated <sigh> upon having to ask someone what they said / meant which I'm sure many on here are all too familiar with. I'm certainly experienced in recieving the esparated look of condescension having taken something slightly to literally. Occasionally ...

Re: Eating Spaghetti

Yes it's embarrassing making a huge mess in front of people whilst eating spaghetti, but i personally find it hard to care that much since as it's so damn good :D
As for cutting it up with a knife well, l won't express my thoughts on that for fear of insulting most of the people in this thread.

Re: Bullying at work

It seems a lot of people have no time for Dyspraxics or anyone who doesn't pick up on something straight away, I myself often experience the obligatory exaggerated <sigh> upon having to ask someone what they said / meant which I'm sure many on here are all too familiar with.

Re: Clothing that you hate

Haven't tied my shoelaces for years, I just leave them tucked under and slip them on every day.
And I hate buttons, whoever invented button flies is one sadistic individual.

Re: Obsessions

Hi, Yeah I can relate to this being obsessive about things is a common symptom of Dyspraxia. I'm guessing its something to do with the fact its on the autistic spectrum. It is? :O Forgive my ignorance, only recently heard the term so I'm not that knowledgeable, this actually makes a lot of sense as...

Re: You know you're dyspraxic when

When you're in Nandos and ask the waitress for 'the desert menu' when it's directly in front of your face and she just points to it and you're friend never lets you forget it.

I can only answer yes, as I have yet to find a coping strategy that does not involve shouting / swearing / hitting things :S

Re: Meltdowns and sensory overload

I can relate very heavily to this, often when I am confronted with any minor failure or slip up I will react disproportionately (only at home though, in public I'll just be left feeling immensely down and thinking about it for the next 20 minutes) and usually at home I will swear a lot just for the ...

Re: Parents

Jake Not sure I'm really qualified to answer this as only flew the nest two years ago in my late 30s. Equally did not really understood what dyspraxia was until about 4 years ago when I learned I was affected. My parents were driving me mad and probably vice versa too. While I didn't really want to...

Parents

Anyone else found that dyspraxic traits have a seriously negative effect on their childhood/teenage life/ early adulthood in relation to living at home with mum and/or dad?

Re: Surviving Valentines Day!!

Great :) In my experience nothing much really happens on valentine's day anyway, its only if you start really thinking about it that it gets you do...
