My Story of Dyspraxia

Postby Katielauren2001 » Thu May 19, 2005 3:46 pm

Last Year I was diognosed with mild dyspraxia ,I went to a centre called Armisted ,I had an assesment,it was a very scary building to me.but now it now longer seems scary ,to me now dyspraxia is not a disability its a gift and everyone should know that .Don't ever feel down because dyspraxia is special.I still go to do OT and sometimes I have fun ,I love reading ,writing ,and singing also cooking ,and dyspraxia will never make me feel down.

Yeah I think I am mildly dyspraxic too. It is not that bad most of the time.

Hi Katie, yeah there are plenty of good points to being Dyspraxic. I also think I might be affected by it mildly.

I am severely dyspraxic. Despite the difficulties (hardly ever being able to go out alone isn't so nice!) I still believe that the good far outweighs the bad. Without dyspraxia, I wouldn't have the determination that I possess today. After countless tumbles (both literal and figurative) I have learnt that I will never be a quitter. Success is attainable; I just take the scenic route!! We make a good team, dyspraxia and I.

i sometimes try and picture what i would have been like if i hadn't been dyspraxic. it may seem weird but i think i'd prefermy self this way. if i'd grown up "normaly" i would probably ended up like most of the other kids in my old school, which isn't a good thing.

They never read books and prefure to wait for the film to come out. non of them wanted to learn, and if you did you were riddiculed. i much prefer myself as i am now.

Yeah, being "normal" is not all that good. Everyone has their own flaws.

Reading the messages of the people on this forum makes me feel proud to be dyspraxic. Keep up the good work.

Same here parnassus. What's the point of being normal? If you were a normal person you may have a lower I.Q and you wouldn't experience as much of a challenge.

I love challenges. On Saturday I'm going on Scout Camp for a week and I'm really looking forward to it! :D The activities include rock climbing and abseiling, which I know I'm going to find very difficult, but I'm determined to succeed in doing these things! :P

you will have a ball

remembering my scout camps :D :D :D

Tip: you can never have to many clean dry warm socks

and warm jumpers too.

I remember one time i went camping with my patrol (scout group)
and for some mad reason we went swimming in the middle of febuary in Ireland (all it does is rain here summer winter it does matter it rains Ireland is a cold country in spring never the end of winter)

To warm up i had a wear 4 pairs of socks 2 pants, a t-shirt , 2 jumpers and a jacket for ages afterword.

It was soo much fun.

Scouts is a big happy memory of mine
i would recommend it to anyone.

Madame_tigre hope you have a great time and good luck with the rock climbing and abseiling!!!

I was a scout aide when I was in girl scouts. It was a lot of fun!! As far as challenges go, I tend to like taking them more than I used to. I think it is because I have more self-confidence than I used to. 8) :D :)

Thanks people. Tujunga, I will definitely take lots of warm clothing. This wasn't with Scouts, but this one time I went boating and everyone in the boats started splashing each other, as they do :roll: When I got out, I took half the river with me as a souvenir and I just had a light denim jacket and a towel to warm me up. I'll learn from my experience and bring lots of warm clothes for next time I get wet! :D
