Flare-ups dyspraxia

Post by kaizmoto1489 »

Does anyone else experience their dyspraxia with flare-ups? I never don't have dyspraxia. But some days I can tell upon waking are clearer and easier than others.
I can tell subjectively something is wrong... Then I'm bumping into and dropping things all day, gapping out and incapable of holding together day plans at all.
Some days I wake up feeling comparatively great. On those days my motor skills are less clumsy, I sometimes even feel nimble, and I feel clear and get work done.
In the past is fool myself into thinking the good days could last forever if I remained positive and I'd bring myself down into the dumps. But now I have come to believe my dyspraxia "flares up" and becomes worse some days.

Hi there and welcome. Glad you've found the Forum and hope it helps.

Some days can definitely be more difficult than others and a bad start can leave us playing catch up to try to somehow rescue the day rather than having to write it off. Stress, frustration, anxiety + dyspraxia make for a very vicious circle and the elements feed off each other to provide chaos

See also my response to Dyspraxia symptoms/panic attacks?

I see it as my Goblin alter ego having somehow gained the upper hand and now running amok. I have to either grin and bear it or somehow coax and cajole or otherwise get the little blighter back under a submission hold so that the fragile/uneasy truce can be re-established!

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