Dear normals.

I have compiled a list of why being dyspraxic makes more sense than being *normal*.

Here goes:

Dear Normals,

1) Normals, where is the fun in kicking a peice of tatty leather into a net? Please enlighten me.

2) Normals, why do you have to cake your face in make-up/get drunk/smoke. Personally I feel that these things make me retch and feel really uncomfortable. I don't see the point in wearing a mask all day.

3) Normals, why do you hang around in groups with strange clothes, and have conversations that barely make sense? Why does 'normal' teenage conversation revolve around music and whos 'fit' (What is fit, exactly?).

4) Normals, why is it ok to talk about music, sports, celebrity scandels but when you talk about how FTPing something works people glaze over, or when you want to have a intelligent debate on evolution/religion/interesting topical issue people say you are entering a danger zone.

5) Normals, why do you say you like something when you don't? Surely that is just going to make things worse? Surely honesty is the best policy?

6) Normals, why do you wear clothes that are obviously not comfortable?

7) Normals, where is the pleasure in clothes shopping?

8) Normals, why is it bad to actually do your homework?

Thanks,

A confused dyspraxic.

This is what I so, so, so want to yell at people sometimes!

Dear normals
Why is it funny to tease someone about their handwriting?
Why do you have to wear high heels and then complain that your feet hurt?
Why do you have to pick on people who aren't normal?
What is normal anyway?

Define normal please you people who consider yourselves to be more normal than the rest of us. (us being the quirky ones.)

Isn't being quirky better than going with the crowd??

Dear Normals,

Why do you form cliches? Can't you just be your own person?
Why you tell someone that they are your best friend then bitch about that person behind their back?
Why do you feel the need to get completely trashed and be gobby just to gain popularity?

I don't think 'Normal' exists either but these are a few common behaviours I've seen which i don't like. In a way, they can be mose socially clueless than we are because they don't understand people who are different, even though they'd never admit to it or even think about it. Atleast we can admit to being socially clueless

Why do you have to cover yourself in ttrucklodes of makeup to look nice then you end up looking like a clown.

Why do you walk on by when a persion trips and laugh as talk about them on the way out.

Why do you scream at the firebell only to make others scared (((i am terrified of firealarms in our school)))

Why is it you talk all lession but still get a lv.6 when i really try hard and only get a lv.4??

Why do you scream every time you get a tad of durt on you



I wonder why

I don't think being dyspraxic or not really makes a difference to whether someone is gonna get drunk. Being a bit drunk does wonders for my dyspraxia-induced social anxiety, although it's not something I'd really want to do more than once a week (I barely ever drink). Smoking is also not something I think really matters, very few teenagers smoke nowadays, it's more education than mindset.

Anyway, I want to know how normal people can sit still for an hour in lectures. ;)

No one can focus for a whole lecture in the front row of our lectures.

Then again, that would be a very loose definition of the word normal...

I know lots of "normal" pepole who are very nice, and I know some disabled pepole who are cruel and nasty. The two points have nothing too do with each other.

I have, however, noticed that pepole with disabilities tend to open up too me more when they find out I am disabled. This, to me, is a little worrying. Surely you shouldn't want to be friends with someone because they are disabled any more then you should want to not be friends with them for the same reason.

I think these people would still want to be your friends anyway, but if you didn't have the experience of being disabled they maybe wouldn't find it so easy to talk about that part of their life with you.
