I appreciate that some partners of dyspraxics have had a difficult time with their relationships.
Nonetheless, the Dyspraxic Adults Forum is not a place for people without dyspraxia to gatecrash this site and make disparaging generalizations about people with our condition. Quite frankly, many of us take enough crap in our lives about our condition and do not want to hear it here.
Below are some quotes that I have seen on this thread. They imply that dyspraxics are unworthy of relationships. As a dyspraxic man, I find such a sentiment positively insulting.
Moreover, it is unacceptable for people without dyspraxia to come onto this site and talk about us dyspraxics as if they're not there. If these posters wish to vent about their problems with their (ex) dyspraxic partners, they can jolly well set up their own website.
A recent poster wrote: But this is not an illness, there is no cure... it is a disability, and therefore it is the partners who have to adapt their behaviour and accept a life of frustration, loneliness, anger and lack of emotional reward in order to survive a relationship with someone with dyspraxia.
Another poster from some time ago wrote:I get so ANGRY. I just cannot get my head around how they see things. .......It's just nice to be able to talk to someone who is brave enough to say that living with a dyspraxic is no fun. I DO NOT find their traits 'endearing'.
I'm not going to argue with these above posters' opinions. However, such statements about dyspraxics do not belong on this site!
