One or two things of it yes. I wouldn't cure it as a whole because there'd be no need. I'd cure my balance and walk problems, nothing else is mandatory, I don't see a concept of a normal person and abnormal person.

That's touching, Rachel.

I don't see a concept of a normal person and abnormal person.


Nor do I. We're all different. Our differences just happen to have a name.

I would. Because all it does is cause me grief from my sister and school.

Yup. My sisters and my parents don't have any learning disabilities or anything, but they do have problems and they sometimes do act strange. They are different from other people in many ways. I think when people wallow in self pity (as I do sometimes) they tend to think that others don't have any problems at all, but in reality we all do-we're just different. I have friends who are worried about jobs or they have lost a loved one. One of my friends has a boyfriend who is in the Marines and was in Iraq for a time. She doesn't get to see him much. Other people just have some quirk that makes people stare at them or laugh. Sometimes people I know will do something out of the ordinary and it's kind of strange, but we have to realize that we're all different-and being different is part of being human.

One of my quotes says that: "Every horse is good for something." It means that every horse could either be a plowhorse or a racing steed or some kind of riding horse-maybe just a good friend, but they all are special since they all have a unique use. It's the same with people. Some people are really smart and they can grow up to be world class brain surgeons. Some are athletic or good at acting and they might be on stage or on some kind of field/rink/court. Others are good teachers or good healers. There are good friends and the ones that are just really great at loving others unconditionally. Some people can cook and some design clothes. Some do whatever your forte is. The point is that every person has something they are good at and something that maybe they struggle at. Hopefully they will find whatever they are good at and go for it. Every person is good for something. I believe every person alive today has a reason to be here (good or bad) or else they would have died by now because they had served their purpose.

Dyspraxia made sure I had no friends.

Dyspraxia prevented me from doing most of the things I wanted to.

Dyspraxia gave me a load of stereotypes ranging from ignorant to offensive.

Dyspraxia crushed me with embarrassment and worthlessness every day of my life.

But...

Dyspraxia made me gifted.

Dyspraxia got me respect.

Dyspraxia meant I met all of you.

Dyspraxia opened a whole window of insight to me, about what it is to really be valued.

Dyspraxia made me able to help others.


i agree with Goldenhamster.

without dyspraxia i wouldnt be me so no i wouldnt cure it
Dyspraxia might restrict some of my capabilitys

But it also heightens my awareness :)

No. I am happy with who I am and how I have progressed. As I've grown older, I have learned to tame the obvious effects of dyspraxia (not always successfully!) and have found people who accept me for who I am, thus leading me to accept this myself.

Also, I believe that my linguistic ability can be attributed to my Dyspraxia; a gift or a curse?

I would like to be rid of the physical problems of dyspraxia. I keep imagining waking up oneday and finding I could draw to a nearly normal standard, write fast enough to keep up with the class, and walk down an uncrowded corridor without bumping into someone. I wouldn't fix my brain, I don't think it needs fixing.

well anyone who ays they've never wanted rid of it is a liar :) but no i wouldnt its just as much a part of me as my arms and of course there are times i would love to get rid of it but no given the choice i personaly wouldnt

however it is a personal choice
I must find a truth that is true for me . . . the idea for which I can live or die.
