  1. The first new TheAnMish video has appeard in nearly a year. Apparently she is now very busy, and that's why she hasn't posted much.
  2. Singing to self soothe and feel better

    Hello, As some of you know I'm an adult with Aspergers. I have always loved singing to self soothe. I'm self taught and have not had any singing lessons. I literally fall in love with songs and they get stuck in my head to the point where I can't do much else but hyper focus on the song. It plays in my head 24/7 and the only way to get it out of my head is to learn it and sing it and once I feel satisfied with the recording, it goes away. I love this song from Beauty and the Beast. Hope you all enjoy listening to it as much as I've enjoyed learning and recording it. It would mean a great deal to me if you could spare a few minutes to support me with this hobby by visiting my youtube channel which is very much in its infancy, only started recently to have one place to store all my recordings, like it or share it if you find it any good. Sorry about the funny faces i pull whilst concentrating on the notes Hopefully this link will work for my channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPAIYdY6xr0uasCSBkynT3Q Thank you x
  3. Another aspie vlogger from the same country as the owner of this forum. But she only has one video about asperger's, embedded right below. Most of her others are make-up tutorials. Another aspie who breaks the mould by being into beauty, but I wonder if it is a special interest of hers. Does she go on and on about make-up? It seems likely that only those who know her personally would currently know. She does have a few other psychology related videos, including one about anxiety and even something called emetophobia. I have sent her an email, using an email address found on her about page, mentioning this site, but so far no reply from her.:(
  4. http://m.tmz.com/#article/2016/05/03/50-cent-apology-andrew-farrell-autism/ Here we go again with a "cool" & "hip" person making fun of our disorder. This stuff really pisses me off. This is why I stay away from the "cool" people.
  5. I'm not planning to tell my employers about my condition. I was just wondering what people thought about this question. Should you disclose your Aspergers to an employer. In my case, I probably should, having Aspergers weakens my ability to do my job in certain aspects, such as communication, social skills and often competency, I have a feeling they're already aware of my disability (or at least know I'm different), but I haven't said anything, and neither have they. Also, when applying for jobs, I tend to fiddle with the 'Do you consider yourself to have a disability' check box, with some applications, I tick it and others, I don't, because I believe I have a higher chance of getting the job if I say I don't. When I say applying for jobs, these are only retail jobs, and I've been in retail for 3 years, so I can handle whatever they may throw at me (I'd like to think I could).
  6. It's the 18th of February so Happy Asperger's Day everyone!
  7. Hi, As mentioned in the help, support and advice thread, I have pasted below a series of short videos by Dr. T Attwood on Aspergers syndrome. I related with most if not all of it. I am curious to read what other Aspies on this forum think about these videos. I just want to know if anyone else has experienced these aspects in their lives or is it just me. and finally Thanks for your time. Mish
  8. SuBo (Susan Boyle) has AS

    Hi, did anyone else hear that SuBo has been diagnosed with AS? I heard it in the news a few days ago What do you think about it? Please share your views.
  9. One issue I have on a daily basis is one about organisation - or rather the lack of it. I do my best to keep on top of things - I have a routine where I save all my washing-up for when I absolutely have to do it and I do the tidying up again on a similar basis. It works for me but the trouble is I have fallen into what many might call a bad routine and it does pose problems when the landlord pops round to inspect, etc. I have tried to explain to the landlord that I have a routine, etc but he doesn't have much sympathy. The trouble is when I do tidy up (and blitz the place) suddenly I can't find anything and am in ordered chaos!! I end up having to turn the place upside-down again just to find anything and this some times takes me to melt down. Through disorganisation I guess I have my own order as I know where everything is. My family have often commented in the past when they have visited and for many years I was ashamed by this. But now I realise it is all part of this preference for routine thing. When things get untidy and I leave them I get used to it being like that. When I tidy up I am pleased by the results and it does offer some help in that I think more clearly and feel better about things but it also poses other problems in that suddenly my routine is in disarray. I used to own my own place but when things got tight financially I had to go back to renting and with it the responsibility bestowed upon me by a landlord. It is frustrating I cannot just be left to my homely routine in peace but the landlord's presence is ever looming in the back of my mind and I feel obliged to do something about the clutter etc. But then I fall into the routine again which prompts me to leave it. But the landlord has a habit of dropping by on the off chance and every time I see his van in the drive way my heart quickens ten fold and I'm bolting around tidying up quickly which then leaves me later not being able to find anything and sliding towards melt down.
