you say normal, but what is normal? It depends who you are. If it was 'normal' then it wouldn't be normal for you, would it????????

Dyspraxia is my normal.

Just like asthma, eczema, allergies and wearing glasses are my normal. Normal is what life's like for you.

Your normal and someone else's normal are different things. Normal is personal. Your normal reflects who you are.

Of course someone is bound to come along with another definition or the opposite view...

My point exactly.

Sometimes I feel like I want to, but there are other times when I don't really notice it and there are also times when I achieve something made tougher because of Dyspraxia. So overall I wouldn't want to change. I',m happy as I am.

I think it completes my life exactly = ) When you trip up or spill something, its something to laugh about, it add comedy for a start, and it means something funny happens every day!

The bad thing about dyspraxia, or other motor disorders, like dysgraphia or DCD, is that they make ordinary little tasks, like fastening a button, making a sandwitch or pouring a drink very difficult. However, even this (which I freely admit is very frustrating) isn't all bad. "Normal" people don't get a warm fuzzy glow inside themselves when they manage to tie their own shoes, or eat dinner without spilling it everywhere. Dyspraxia makes life different and difficult, but it makes it more intersting.

My philiosophy is not to concern myself with things I can do nothing about. There are so many more pressing matters at hand! :)


I agree with you, eDan. Maybe if I wasn't dyspraxic I would be a completely different girl, maybe my experiences with my disability have made me more patient and open-,inded, I'm not sure. But I love myself as I am, and therefore I wouldn't get rid of my (admittedly mild) dyspraxia.

Carrie, dysgraphia is a specific learning difficulty that causes huge problems with handwriting - and nothing else. A dysgraphic person may be an all-star basketball player and yet be physically unable to hold a pen correctly, let alone write his or her own name.

No, you were right - dysgraphia is a motoric disorder, just a very localised one. :)
