Hello! =)

Postby ohpandahat » Mon Jan 17, 2011 10:14 pm

Hi everyone! I'm Jenna, i'm 20 and I live in Nottingham.

I was diagnosed with dyspraxia and dyscalculia at the age of 19 ... which means that I have spent way too many years of my life wondering why I feel "different." It's such a good feeling to know that other people know how I feel though! Although dyspraxia effects me in many different ways, the main thing that repeatedly gets me down is my difficulties with socialising. This is why i've joined the forum!

I'm obsessed with animals, (I have a rabbit + guinea pig!) books, manga / anime, films (Harry Potter! <3) and randomly going walking / adventuring places!

It's nice to meet you all! :oops:

P.S: I feel so nervous eek!

Hiya! I'm Steph and I'm 24. I have both dyspraxia and Aspergers Syndrome. I live in Surrey in south east England and I work as a support worker in a residential school for children with severe and complex epilepsy and other neurological and physical disabilities. It is very challenging but I enjoy it and I am getting better at it now! I love animals (I have 3 cats at home), the Internet, learning about other cultures and languages, reading and listening to music. I hope you enjoy the boards :D

Hi! Aww, I used to have a dwarf lop :D I have a crossbread - he looks like he could be english / dutch cross. He's called Ralph. (I'm a bit rabbit obsessed.) It's quite hard to not let rabbit's get overweight, their so greedy!

What are your rabbits called / look like?

Wow, that sounds amazing! I think that would be a really interesting job. I've been thinking about possibly working with people with learning disabilities as it seems a very rewarding job.

Welcome to the Forum


Hello! Are you studying to do anything inparticular? How are you finding coping with 6th form? (I'm hoping to do my A levels in september.) I'm envious because i've always wanted a lizard! Leopard gecko's are beautiful - i'm always tempted to buy a bearded dragon!

ones brown and called Honeysuckle and the other is Strawberrie and is grey. Strawberrie's bigger than Honeysuckle, but Honeysuckle's the dominant one. They're sisters. I'll upload a photo for you if you want. but not right now cos i'm on my laptop and the photos are on the family computer. They're forever molting, so whenever we cuddle them they leave us covered in fur. I'm sure our previouse rabbit didn't molt his fur as much (he's the one in my picture).

Aww, they sound sweet! I always like grey rabbits, mines grey and white! Oooh, yes! Upload a picture when you can :D Haha, it is annoying when you get covered in fur! My guinea pig has ginger and white fur so I always get covered in ginger fur, which isn't good!

Hi! I studied animal care last year! :) Wow, 12 guinea pigs! I only have 1 but he makes enough smell for 12! Where are you from Lucy? (If you don't mind me asking!) Are you hoping to persue a career working with animals?

Welcome! I'm Nekou and I'm the same age as you, though I was diagnosed at the age of 13 and I wish I could get a diagnosis of dyscalculia. I have difficulties socialising also [so much so I dont want to anymore, disregarding online forums. I still like those.] and I like animals too. Particularly cats, love cats.
I also like Harry Potter..did you enjoy The Deathly Hallows part 1? I assume you've seen it, being a fan and a fan of films too >_>
The Doctor: Good men don't need rules. Today is not the day to find out why I have so many.
