"Being floppy and unstable"

Post by Andrew_S_Hatton » Mon Apr 22, 2019 5:44 pm

I forget about this characteristic - thus described in a "Checklist of dyspraxic symptoms" in the book

"Dyspraxia: Dyspraxic Adults Surviving in a Non-Dyspraxic World"
(Kindle Location 173)"

I was reminded of it going through the book. I first recognised it - though not the cause - when handholding with my girlfriend - though now I reflect - I recall my parents complaining about it when I was a child.

One place I recognise it is when driving - I have often allowed my non dominant (left) hand to become lose or even slip off the steering wheel - my passenger wife has long complained and nowadays I do strive to at least keep it on the wheel.

Do you have similar problems or different ones or does the characteristic not affect you?

Ar present the book is only available - online via Amazon

I confess I know nothing about this except that I have very bad coordination with my left hand. Can't use a blood pressure cuff because of it. Is this the kind of thing you might be talking about or have I totally missed the mark?
