Here are some phrases that may confuse people with Asperger's Syndrome. When I say 'Maybe people will avoid using them' I mean when people know their friend or loved one really struggles to answer these questions as its much easier on them. There will be people with Asperger's Syndrome that do not find these phrases confusing, but a large majority of people on the Autism Spectrum struggle with these phrases. :)

I'm back! Sorry about the long wait from my previous video. I also apologise for how jumpy the editing is in this video, I rambled a lot and kept saying 'ummm' which I had to cut out. Thank you for watching my videos and I hope you enjoy them! I tried uploading this on Saturday but sadly it failed to upload so I had to re-upload on Sunday :)

I decided to do a video sharing some facts about me. There are 15 'facts' in this video and some more in part 2 (which I am still finishing off). The video was too long for one whole video so I thought I would split them into two eight minute video's. There will also be a holiday video coming soon.

Sorry I haven't made a video in a while, I had A Levels to revise for and then sit. I decided to make a video on this because it really interested me and I wanted to explore the link between autism and The Androgen Theory. I'm not saying its 100% correct but I thought it would be interesting to make people aware that this is a theory that exists. I get a bit confused in the video when talking about males on the spectrum but i have since realised that what happens to the females the reverse tends to happen to males so they don't tend to me overly 'macho'.

Its finally uploaded. I had a lot of school work to get sorted in the first couple of weeks back so I couldn't upload anything. Another video is planned for the next week as it will be my birthday on Wednesday. If anyone wants to view/read more about what Ive been getting up to I have a blog on word press called anjamelissa that talks about my daily life.

My routine is VERY structured. I plan pretty much every hour of my day with a few planned hours in the day where I can do anything I want (but these random activities are still planned). If something from my routine is missing or gets disrupted (eg. My bowl isn't clean to use or I wake up late) I get very panicked, anxious and angry. I thought it would be quite interesting for people to see the routine of someone with Aspergers.

A rather serious and long video but none the less important. Hope you enjoy... In an effort to not make this video too long I haven't gone into too much detail about my own OCD experience and have left out some of my other OCD traits so if anyone would like to see a follow up video just leave a comment down below! Thanks for watching. Twitter : @melissa_anja Email : [email protected]

I have Asperger's Syndrome and I am 15 years old. I like Physics and Chemistry. Sorry about not looking at the camera very often, I usually like to look at my hands when I speak. I am reviewing my favourite particle App in this video. Thank you for watching.

I haven't done a video in a while and I want to keep you guys updated about what's happening in the future. I also wanted to discuss my holiday worries and my attitude to the cinema. I had to cut some bits out so that why it can look dis jointed because I kept leaving really long pauses and it made the video too long otherwise.
