Seems to be easy to work around no? Just tell the people that you want to remember a safe word or something like a code word so you know when someone you should know is there

Sounds like a very sad and terrible illness... Maybe it doesn't hurt physically but it sure as hell hurts mentally

I think that's just as bad if not worse... most physical pain can be deal with thanks to medications

I have had a similar problem to that, its linked to my Kleinfelter's Syndrome, dyspraxia..

I was born♀️♀️♂️ XXY but very feminine, i was brought up as male♂️ (I did not know i was XXY until 38) 😯.. I enjured a severe head trauma🤕 at 2, then my grandma tried to kill me at aged 4- she had Dementia😪.. I have severe problem image blindness👀, it can stop me in my tracks as 3D suddenly becomes flat and without colours/ shape, i hate crowded places😒

With mirrors i cannot define depth or recognise who or what i am seeing🤔..i had a phobia of mirrors too from 2 onwards because i saw dead people in them with me, i lived in a haunted house!👻..My impaired vision😎 did not help, combined with my spatial awareness, poor mèmory, not able to recognise faces is a great problem😶.I too see the past faces seen only in my sleep, i have photo memory of past & the future as i time travel too, as flatline with sleep apnea😴...i had facial reconstructive surgery because of my rickets, i then had even greater problem seeing who i was😶..It was not until Dec 2019 when i came out as a AMAB intersex female (AIS), that i realised i could now marry up inner female me to the my outer 70% female body👭..it hasn't solved my problems, but easied them, though putting make up on is a struggle with my fine motor problem in hands & co ordination issues.😕..

Work in progress, concentration is about 2 minutes if lucky🤨..i have not really talked about this, in this way, as in UK its very taboo to admit you were born queer by your genetics💛💜 & not see who you really are with, image dysphoria🤔..i know i am not alone with these issues, just different 🙃🙂
