Bonus Post! Everybody likes a bonus from time to time! In this bonus post I’m collaborating with my best friend, Alex King. He has recently re-launched his blog and chose Social Interaction as his next topic. It’s a massive talking point! Different people have different experiences of it, so I’m chipping in with my own … Read more

Post #128 ~ Dark Games as a Source of Light

Recapping from my last post, I talked about how games help me handle certain stresses in my life and this post follows on from that topic. This post is all about how dark psychological horror games help me fight depression. Getting posted on Halloween is rather apt, wouldn’t you agree? (It’s like I planned this … Read more

Post #127 ~ Gaming as a Temporary Escape

Video gaming is one of my longest running hobbies to date; rivalled only by a passion for adventuring/exploring and reading. Although, it could be argued that they are all in the same vein, just one happens in the real world, one in the imagination, and the other in a virtual one. Gaming and my Blog … Read more

Post #126 ~ Mental Health Awareness Day

It’s quite beautiful poetry that Mental Health Awareness Day lies in the heart of the Dyspraxia Awareness Week; personally speaking one of the core difficulties of dyspraxia is the fact mental health issues have a heavy impact on us.

Pokemon Go and Dyspraxia

Pokémon has been a franchise that’s been going for over 20 years, and with the launch of Pokémon Go it brought it back into the limelight, both for positive and negative reasons. I did a chapter on Pokémon Go for my ‘Dyspraxia and Gaming‘ page, but I have decided to move its content to a post … Read more

Post #102 ~ ‘The Shot Arrow’

The drawbacks have finally lead to something… Change happens on a regular basis and it is something we have to face and accept. Sometimes it’s in our control, but for the most part, it isn’t and sometimes we’re given a choice in the matter, but it could be none of the options are good and it’s … Read more

Post #100 ~ Depression: My Internal Fight

A minor milestone for my Dyspraxia blog – the 100th official post! A celebratory post was in order, but with how everything has transpired these past few months that would have been an insult to me and an injustice to this blog. Over the past few months, I have worked on a project on depression … Read more

Post #088 ~ Dyspraxia Awareness Week (9th-15th October 2016)

Howdy followers and friends! This week marks the time when it becomes absolutely acceptable to promote Dyspraxia and DCD far and wide. So don’t be afraid to share any content fired around from the Dyspraxia Foundation or the various bloggers and vloggers. Dyspraxia and DCD affects the same amount of people as Dyslexia does, however, Dyspraxia … Read more
