Yeah, this is basically how I get. It just seems to be more common with the dark thoughts, and less with the happy with myself, but not as much any more

Steph wrote:Regarding the spasms, have you been assessed for Tourettes Syndome? The spasms sound a lot like the physical tics that can occur with this condition and it is well known that the tics in Tourettes Syndrome occur more frequently in times of stress, nervousness and anxiety.
Nah, I checked with my doctor after my initial diagnosis with Dyspraxia, and apparently, as Dyspraxia is linked with failures in the nervous system and brain, occasionally a signal will be sent the wrong way and into my muscles. To be honest though, I kinda like the spasms circa a week ago, when I had a spasm in my legs when picking up my folders, while everyone was leaving assembly, and I accidentally did a backflip! Made a few friends for a while, but they are more interested in CAUSING spasms, rather than PREVENTING them.

That is AMAZING advice! I tried accepting me for me, using deduction! I worked out exactly what makes me depressed all the time, and explained to myself exactly why they are false reasons. Now, 95% of the time, I am happy!

Yeah, I still get like that, noticing someone staring at me, then I blush, look away, and walk off. However, I have decided to do what no shy-man has done before... maybe. I'm going to start a vlog, the aims being for my shyness to stop, and to explain to the world exactly what Dyspraxia can do to you. It won't be easy, but I still need a better camera...
Sorry about the late reply btw, I completely forgot I posted this! That, and I had a metric butt-tonne of AS Mock Exams, so I didn't have much time for internetting :/
