Hey, I'm almost 16 and I sleep with a blanket and a few teddys to me this is just normal! When I was 13 I was diagnosed with a serotonen deffientcy which basicly means my body doesn't make enough of the hornone serotonen (aka the happy hormone) I am on tablets now and have been fine for 3 years!

I also sleep with a teddy, and I'm a 17 year old guy, so it's even more embarassing for me (If not usual, it's not uncommon for girls). Am I starting to see a pattern here about dyspraxic people with teddies?

My 21 year old fiancé sleeps with a monkey called Charlie. I sleep with my teddy Katie and a dummy.

I'd rather not change that, thank you very much :P

The day I had to give up my dummy was one of the worst days of my childhood. Stupid parents bribing me with stuff :P

A little more seriously, I evidently had quite a good childhood that that is all I have to complain about.

My mum and the mental health professionals are the only people I hide it from (I used to steal my siblings, and when I was able to buy my own she'd take them off me). It's something that I've tried to give up, but since my hands then get bitten to pieces I've decided I'll keep this habit as it doesn't harm anyone.

Me too. I was forced to give up when I was seven. I still miss it sometimes. Sometimes I even cry just thinking about it. I miss my MeMe so much :cry:



Yes, I still call them MeMes :lol:

hey guys thanks for all the support

i was wondering if any of you guys get really anxious if you see a group of people walking towards you or if your in a nosiy and crowded enviroment like a classroom, pub or night club?

my mum says im just boring and dont want to go out, its not that i do want a social life i just get really anxious and the noise is just too much for me.

someone told me this could be an autistic trait anyone help me out hear? :?

Yes that is more of an autistic trait but lots of people with dyspraxia struggle with crowds as well. I have Aspergers Syndrome and I always feel nervous walking in the town centre and, although I can manage a night in a club, my body and brain punish me for it afterwards! Explain to your mum that it's not that you don't want to socialise but you can't socialise in those sorts of environments. There are other quieter ways to socialise which could be better for you.

You could go to a book club or something :) Places like that are bound to be quieter :P



I'm going on a trip on Tuesday but I don't think my helper is able to come. Knowing that is making me feel a little nervous and it's also because it's not in my normal routine. My mum is aware of this and she's wondering if she should come too (just to wait outside) This is a bit of a "confidence knocker"!

hey guys i was thinking of gong to the doctors and seeing if they could refer me to occupational therapy to see if they could help me with anything. im really bad with eating with a knife and fork i look like im trying to kill the piece of meat with a fork and then slice it up with the fork and my cutlery slips a lot which means that half of my food ends up on the floor! ive also got weak wrists which get worst when im (trying) to write or type or carry stuff and it kinda bothers me, my ankles also give way randomly and its really embarrising, like this one time i was on cadet camp and i was running and my ankle just gave way and i kind of slid across concrete fro about a metre and scraped a lot of skin off various limbs.

do any of you think it would be worth me going to see the OT?

take care

whizz xx

I sleep with a pillow :mrgreen: , It smells and feels really nice..(drifts of thinks of the heavenly texture and smell, hmmmm, haaaaaaahh, (relaxing sigh), and I'm fourteen...

I also found it was nice to find a lot of people who know what I mean when I say I'm haveing a bad day :D .

I also think that Dyspraixa has changed me for the good, rather than getting cross with people I have learnt to be a lot more tollerant. (bassicly, I have learnt t less judgemental on people)

I also (groan, yes I have just use I tfour times in a row, but hey), I also get really anxious to the point od shaking when I got to meet somone new, and cannot make eye contact.

Whizz,
I think occupational therapy would be helpful for you, particularly in the area of your eating and drinking skills.The wait can be long but it could well be worth it in the end.
