I'm a student nurse, it can be hugely frustrating and i have had a lot of stumbling blocks along the way. The type of environment i work in can help or hinder my dyspraxia.

I hope when i qualify i can work in elderly care, as that seems to be well suited to my needs, it's not too specialised that i feel out of my depth, but at the same time, due to their decreasing independence, there's a lot of hands on care involved.

Also i found that i met some brilliant nurses in that area. Elderly care isn't often a popular choice, so the nurses that do work there, really are passionate about what they do.

I work as a application support analyst in a university previously i worked in finance in a college. Its not going aswell as I would have hoped only been here 3 months and on a years contract with the potential of becoming permanent could be busier I find i perform better when busier with my dyspraxic tendencies. But its a good enviroment to work in.

I work for Mencap in Leeds as an Admin Support for the Employ Me programme. As the name suggests, Employ Me finds jobs for people with a learning disability. I'm comfortable with most of my tasks; indeed, daft as it sounds, my dyspraxia gives me a problem when it comes to menial jobs. I also struggle when there are too many people in the office and too much noise. Also there are issues with travel. I like routine in my job, although not too much!

I work for the NHS 111 service as a health advisor. Been doing it for 6 years now although I've only work part-time hours for half of that as I become accustomed to living on a tight budget.

It really pisses me off the amount of folk that ring in with minor ailments, who think that they are at death's door!
