I'm 47 and have allways been clumsy and like a bull in a china shop and usually covered in bruises. My balance is poor my spacial awareness and measurement of things I'd pants. If you
want a cup of tea in my house be prepared for j
half a cup. But I'm doin well I have a very reaonsible job on an endoscopy unit
I've been to university and graduated when I was given up upon a school. It was also discovered when I was 29 that I have dyslexia as well I can't tell which shoe to put on which foot. I am after years if low self esteem really good at my job and am great practically but working for the nhs is a structual unit. People still don't get get me my humour my clumsiness I don't allways think before I speak. But who I am an my dyslexia and dysbraxia shape who I am and makes me the person i am and I'm proud to be who I am me take my dyses!!! Still don't quite love myself but may get there one day. Life isn't allways easy but We are the originals xx

I am 29 and only got diagnosed with dypsraxia at 15 after a very difficult childhood and teenage years.

I've only just started talking about my experiences as I was always embarrassed about it growing up - but now I don't mind who knows :-)

If anyone would like to read about my experiences, this is my blog: http://vikingbay.blogspot.com/

Cheers,

Matthew

I am not bothered about what people think of him (I love him), because they are narrow minded people with nothing better to do, i have been labaled has a bad mum by total strangers and i just smile! I need the help for my son who is very frustrated! Please could someone e mail me with some ideas! My address is

I've just been diagnosed with dyspraxia which certainly answers alot, people often put it down as me being clumsy or theres another seanism.
I'm not letting it get in the way of my future studies as i soon reach 34 and have had far too many dead end jobs due to being frustrated with failing at college in the past, and being told i have thought processing issues stopping me from seeing my son. well, now the proffessionals know why...
