About Me

My name is Gilly aka Dizzy from DandArts / Danda, i was diagnosed with Dyspraxia, dyslexia and ADD about  2 years ago. I have been a member of Danda for about 3 years. Since that time i have helped produce a newsletter and created an arts forum for Danda, I have also had an autobiography published called "Take 2 Asprin". I am a mother of one four year old (not currently diagnosed with dyspraxia). Being diagnosed has really changed my life for the better. I strongly beleive that support groups like this are crucial helpline as Dyspraxia is still missunderstood by many and in some cases still dismissed by others. I have been lucky enough to work most of my life in (beleive it or not) admin jobs and i am also a fully qualified Masseuse and aromatherapist. I am at current unemployed and have just started to look for work. Its the first time i have done so knowing that i have SpLD's (a bit scary). Being on the outside looking in, as i call it has given me sharp sense of humour (good for dealing with hecklers i find) and im really enjoying exploring writing and being brave enough to share it!!!

Hi Dizzy,

Thank you for joining us and welcome aboard.. You are absolutely right in saying that dyspraxia is still misunderstood by some and dismissed by others. That's an attitude that needs to be changed and we, in KeDA plan to do as much as we can to make a difference.
