    It's quite easy, I taught myself by taking a bike to the top of a comfortably steep hill, and letting the bike roll down whilst I placed my feet on the pedals, and once I gained a sense of balance I would just start to cycle.

    Took a bit of practice but I learnt how to ride a bicycle in a week or so.


    Now to learn how to swim:moon:
    I nearly drowned whilst learning to swim. Instead of swimming to safety to the side of the pool to get out I panicked and attempted to swim all the way back to the shallow end. Eventually a girl grabbed me by my chest and rescued me. My friends were too busy laughing at me swearing at them for not helping me so they were "unable to help" -_-

    Education in general is hell for me. But this is quite a non-issue since hell is my middle name.

    You should consider joining the satanic cults in your local area. You would fit in ever so well.

    I've never been diagnosed with a brittle bone disorder so I hope not!

    I'm dyspraxic so pretty much incredibly clumsy...they've all been doing really silly things. To be fair, five bones adds up quite quickly. Wrist (football), fingers (door), collarbone (in a car crash, easier than you'd think), patella (tripping over a sofa) and ankle (trampoline), all easy enough *at least I like to tell myself

    I've got dyspraxia really bad, never broken any (of my own) bones

    My sisters has dyspraxia, she was diagnoised this year and she managed last year to cope with a broken arm for three days before she let my mother take her to the hospital, I was amazed that she could deal with pain like that but then when we realized that due to her dyspraxia she can't feel pain like everyone else can.

    Yeah - it's funny for a moment when someone kicks you in the nuts - their face is usually "ohhhh not good, run" or "what are you?" either way they leave quickly and you're sat there grinning for a few minutes - then you get the pain.

    Yeah - dyspraxia's one of those ones that affects you more when you're a kid or towards to late teens/early twenties but even then it's not easily noticed - how old is she?

    Same. I can only ignore it of its someone who I don't know well, or is a stranger. Or if I'm eating something as well.

    But yeah, can't people hear themselves? Just eat with your mouth closed if you're with other people. Pig out if you're on your own lol

    Oh my god yes I'm exactly the same! I can only ignore it if it's a stranger too. That's crazy hahaha.

    And yes, I agree. I don't understand why people don't hear themselves when the rest of the table is completely silent.

    Good. I'm not trying to put her down or anything but most people with dyspraxia just wouldn't cope otherwise - me included
