Living Indepentaly

Post by cricketman123 » Mon Dec 04, 2017 8:41 pm

I am 25 with dyspraxcia. I am still at college which I feel I am doing really well with studying level 3 travel & tourism, I would like to do year 2 next year and then who knows maybe uni.

The thing I would like to ask is how many people on here feel they are able to live interdependently. I feel even though i have dyspraxcia that won't stop be from leading a normal life. I feel very lucky in my self and there are so many things I can achieve.

Hi pleased to see you're feeling bit more optimistic. It can bring challenges but I think it's important to gain some self reliance as it will boost one's self confidence too.

I didn't actually leave home and get my own place until about 5 years ago at age 37. Guess I had a few, as it turns out unfounded, worries. I've always been ok at managing money and I've learned to cook reasonably well. Keeping on top of keeping the place tidy is something I need to work on though.

With a foot full of bullets I tried to run faster but I just hobbled on to the next disaster.
