I also hate load noise, but fireworks by me go from about 2 weeks before bombfire night, until a day or 2 after the new year! I used to like going to see the firework displays, when it was just 1 night, and ended up having to cover my ears! I think the ear muffs/sheilds would be a good idea, but the...

I am the youngest, my parents had my brother, mis-carried, and then had me, but they only wanted 2 kids, but I think it is hereditory, as a relitive has got dyslexia, which from what I could find as that they seem to be very closely linked as well, or whether it was just that these chat pages, and d...

it is a disability, but it is only as much a disability that you let it be, yes most things apply to me, or in some degree or another, but the one thing I can say no to is not being able to drive a car, I dunno whether it is sheer determination, and wanting, and learning, or what! even though I was ...

I tend to agree with the previous reply, even though my handwriting is easily readable, and joined, then to get the speed in writing, I ended up writing in capitals in school and college! apart from that then I have opted for the pc for writing every time, as I am about 15 times faster with the pc t...

I know I am late with this reply as it was months ago, but I was unlucky when I was in school, as they didn't know anything about dyspraxia, and so no-one could actually put a name to it, or even say anything about it. my parent's taken me everywhere, speach therapy, as at the age of 5 I still could...

I did have a problem with loose socks, when I was a kid, my mother would pair them up after taking them out of the sock eating machine!! then she would roll them into a ball, and then turn the one sock inside out over the ball she had made, which then meant by the time I got to wear them then they h...

I used to like PE in junior school, apart from rounders, but was surprised when I actually got to hit the ball, but then in comprehensive, the teacher used to like rugby, even during the winter, done up in about 5 layers of clothes, and a coat! well I got fed up of it, and after trying my best, coul...

my new years resolution is to get myself a wobble board, and try to do about 20 mins twice a day on it, maybe more to start off with, as my balance is getting worse. especially on stairs, and driveways.
