People should beware of a neurological disease known as asperger’s syndrome that makes communication and interaction with others a challenge. This disease is a form of autism that effects men and women but is relatively undetected in men.
A 22-year-old Katrin Andberg who has Asperger’s syndrome says It's kind of like fireworks in your brain. It all just kind of mooshes in your brain and you can't take one particular thing out. It's like chaos. i mean it's just, it's like i walk past something and it's a blur.
According to the website Online Asperger Syndrome information and support people with AS also have difficulties with transitions or changes and prefer sameness. They often have obsessive routines and may be preoccupied with a particular subject of interest. They have a great deal of difficulty reading other’s body language, have difficulty determining proper body space, and are overly sensitive to sounds, tastes, smells, and sights. And that has been all for your heath watch, back to you guys..
