Not sure whether this has a name/is dyspraxia related

Sometimes when I'm stirring stuff in a frying pan or saucepan my hand will do an involuntary jerk.

Re: Dealing with variability in performance

I definitely vary in my ability to think. Some days I can think much better than others.

Fluctuating ability to think clearly

I wonder whether a fluctuating ability to think clearly/organise thoughts,ie better some days than others,is a dyspraxic thing.

Just got back file from my public school

There wasn't much. It was mostly correspondence from my prep school headmaster to my public school headmaster. What was mentioned was that I was poorly coordinated, not a games player, and had difficulty with drawing and writing. My public school chart mentioned I was disorganised and messy/untidy. ...
