Re: Dyspraxic + LGB

Despite the fact that I'm very plain looking and was for most of my life quite over weight, I've had an above average amount of women chatting me up, usually because of gigs I'm doing, or just having the chats on a night out, but alas, zero guys. I always thing "genie! surely SOME guy is going to tr...

Re: Dyspraxic + LGB

Perhaps.

It's also quite a compliment.
It takes a lot of courage to "chat someone up" with only the 1:10 chance they're gay, but sometimes you meet someone who's worth the poor odds.

Friends letting you down (what to do?)

I had some very close friends let me down recently. Without going into details, I had planned a large event over a few days (which did involve something similar to public music gigs) where some of my closest friends were integral to the proceedings. The time table we're talking about is like: 6 mont...

Dyspraxic + LGB

Quite a rare mix you may imagine. I'm often met with surprise from friends or new acquaintances if ever the topic of orientation pops up and I mention that I'm gay. I'm not very sure how usual this might be, the sample pool alone maybe so small that there is practically no "tendencies" to speak of a...

Re: Interview issues

A handy little tool I use is, finding a way of telling the interviewer what you would tell the Lehman, and then letting them imply the answer to their question for themselves. If you do it just right, you'll leave them with the impression that you're gland they asked the question, and that you're mo...

Re: Pulled muscles and cramps?

@ Tom fod Yes I'm sure that's true, I was just asking here to guage the likelihood of it being dyspraxia related, or something different. I like to try and stay "handy" with my limbs and have done so all my life, but when I start getting cramps and pulled muscles for my efforts, it's a stronger dete...

Re: How to learn to ride a bicycle with dyspraxia?

My experience in trying to learn new things, is mostly to create an environment where you can keep messing up until you do it right. My mum and sister were on the case when I was young to teach me to ride. Luckily when you're little, a fall isn't as big a deal so I was OK flopping down helplessly ov...

Pulled muscles and cramps?

Hy forum, I haven't logged in in quite a long time, but I had a question and I figured this would be the best place to ask it. I'm curious if any of you suffer an above average amounts of pulled muscles and/or cramps in your daily lives. I seem to have very bad luck with them especially when trying ...

Re: Physical/mental disraxic traits

my "favourite" trait as it were is walking down the stairs. I find it amazing how many close calls I've had where I'd be walking down the stairs and a phone would ring, or I'd think of something I had to do, and then proceed to almost kill myself by forgetting about this stairs business. I can't tru...

Re: Re introduction: out the other end.

that's almost exactly what I'm doing!

It seems creativity and juggling jobs is a lot more manageable then some sort of 9-5 laden with all sorts of responsibilities and people who don't take kindly to all to typical slip ups and misunderstandings.

Physical/mental disraxic traits

Is is possible to be sort of only slightly physically dispraxic, but very heavily mentally dispraxic. I mean I took me eons to learn to walk, eaons to learn cycle, I was always clumsey, but actually, if I'm honest was I that bad? I don't know if me not being too bad with stuff like that is a result ...

memory getting worse, or just needing it more?

right here's one for you. Does or did anyone reckon that their memory for things like dates, facts, times, names, leaving cookers on and trying to remember words have worse over time with a condition like dispraxia or is this unrelated? for example when I was young I remember knowing when each of th...

Re introduction: out the other end.

Hello. I though I'd reintroduce myself. well, I'm out the other end of University, with an M.A. (whistle) and I never bothered go to get tested for dyspraxia in the end. It's not that I wasn't bothered, it's that I decided to be positive and soldier through and though to hell with getting diagnosis ...
