Somone to blame!

Postby Radioactive_hairgel » Thu Jul 21, 2005 5:14 pm

Does anyone at times feel really low about having dyspraxia and it's being 'the hidden disability' and feel they need somone to blame (but as i do not believe in god due to many reasons) i feel i have noone to blame. So for some reason you feel angry at youself for having it. Then when I get thease feelings i feel worse cause it's sort of like self- pitying. and if i talk to anyone they are all like "well you can't tell there's anything wroung- so it can't be that bad". :(

I know the feeling. :( I always wanted someone to blame in the days before I was diagnosed with dyspraxia. I kept failing and falling (metaphorically as well as literally!) and although I tried to pin the blame on many different people, in the end I started to upbraid myself.

But when I was diagnosed, that all changed. As soon as I heard the word 'dyspraxia', I knew that my problems were nobody's fault - least of all my own. But they are my responsibility. I believe it is up to us all to make the best of what we have. Dyspraxia is quite exciting in that respect - it means we have a challenge and a gift, as well as a disability.

I sometimes feel down and despondent, but as a religious person I know that God will never let me go under. The Holy Qu'ran says, "On no soul doth Allah place a burden greater than it can bear." If I find myself in a tough or sticky situation, I actually cheer up, because it shows that God has greater confidence in my capabilities than I do. (I've been very worried about going to university recently, as change is always difficult for me to handle, but this thought comforts me.) God has faith in me, just as I have faith in Him.

Hey, I know how you feel as well. I used to get annoyed with my mum telling me that i was stupid and useless becuse Im clumsy, but now I realise that its her that has the problem with dyspraxia, not me- she doesnt like the fact Iv got it otherwise she wouldnt continously throw dark hints about how unsatisfactory a person I am- for example, Im lazy and 'do nothing'- im going into 2nd year of uni, passing well and working these holidays. Yeah, mum... :evil: But of course, I get fed up with not being able to do things and understand stuff as well as others, but whenever I feel like that, I just remind myself of all the good points in my life- and besides, it could be worse- I could be dying or have no legs, or be a ned! I just try and stay positive, but I must say rite niow that is difficult living with the grim reaper herself, also know as my mother... (grumble grumble yarg yarg)

The only person I've ever felt like blaming is myself. I still do occaionally, like when I spill drinks or smash glasses when I'm trying to 'help' by washing up. feel likev I can't do anything right. I do have to remind myself that dyspraxia. Because it's mild and I act happy most of the time people forget.

The fact that I get angry and frustrated with dyspraxia makes me think that if I didn't have it I'd be a very short-tempered person. As it is, I think dypraxia has made me more patient with others because I know what it's like, if you know what I mean
