Any one else find that when they are sressed there ability to pronouince words properly disapears, so I find I have to speak esspecaily slowly in stresful situations to make sure palm comes out as palm not pan, or some other form on un-itterprible speach.

i do that, it was embarrasing today, i was explaing what the equipment on 131 is, and i froze up and lost the ability to spaak, and i had done exactlly the same talk 5 or 6 times that day. thankfully a friend was there and understood what was happening, so took over.

that was when i ended up strapped to a spine bord - the sod

the way i see it, dyspraxia is an extra hurdle in every race i run, but that extra hurdle, is just extra exercise, so in the end, i will come through stronger.

I get that, what usually helps me is to stop what I'm doing and close my eyes, and take in a big, deep breath. That usually relaxes me enough to say the words that I'm trying to say.

I get VERY frustrated. Once I was talking to my mum and couldn't say a word. I got so mad that I threw my hairbrush to the wall.
