Hi

OK! this is what's happening. A Few months ago, I was getting my groceries and I thought I saw some famous person, in the line up. I was excited and hysterical, waving at him and yelling at my son, "look there he is" I was sooooo happy to see him. The guy seemed a little embarrassed but waved back at me, (trying to be funny). My son kept saying no mom don't be silly, it';s not him. I realized a few minutes later what a fool I was, that I was the only one seeing this, and everyone else was going on with there grocery shopping. I also felt some sadness as to why this happened to me.

It happened again a few weeks ago, I thought I saw a relative, I gave a small smile but only this time I payed more attention, and controlled myself.

I AM THE ONLY ONE WHO SEE'S SOMEONE ELSE, AND IT SEEM'S SO REAL, IT'S HAPPENED TO ME IN MY CHILDHOOD TOO, A FEW TIMES.

I don't know why this happens. I know alot of people will see someone from a distance and say "hey that looks like such and such" but when I see someone it really does seem like that person, until I realize a few minutes later. I hope someone can tell me what the ***l's going on with me

  • ok, so don't get offended when i say i think it is psychological, i don't mean it is all in your head, but i do think it may have something to do with the way your brain processes information, as there is a rare brain disorder that causes familiar people to look unfamiliar, and it kind of seems like you have the opposite of that disorder, unfamiliar people looking familiar. this is a link to a website where you can ask a psychiatrist a question, maybe if you asked her if there is a name or treatment for this condition she could tell you. https://www.psychiatry-online.com/askframe.html
