Making jokes is a good way of coping with dyspraxia indeed.
But I'd say it depends on whom you joke with. Making jokes about myself while I'm spending time with friends is quite an ordinary thing for me to do but in the company of people I don't know I tend to avoid joking at all. I fear that my sense of humour could be misunderstood or mistaken for being "really weird" :?

dyspraxia has become a long runnning joke between me and my friends and I find it quite helpful but when I've had a really terrible day jokes about dyspraxia are the last thing I want to hear

I make jokes about it a lot too when I am with my friends or family. It's a long running joke that I can't walk in heels at all so I made a joke of it when I had to wear them for my uncle's wedding and went straight on a night out in Brighton for my friend's birthday. By the end of the night, I had taken them off and was walking around in tights on a freezing cold night in November but I found it funny. I find keeping a sense of humour helps rather than letting it frustrate me.

I often make jokes about it and when I do, I feel that people laugh along with me and not at me.
