Here's a problem I've had since a child,I'm 44 now. I have problems with face recognition. I heard it's an illness but cannot find it in the search engines. It's not just the regular thing but it causes a lot of embarressment on my side and hurt on the other person's side. I can work with somebody for years,spend an evening with somebody,walk past somebody I 'should' recognize instantly but I just don't. I've had this many times people coming up to me like they know me well from somewhere and yet I fail to recognise them. I find these days if I have to try to remember a 'face' I have to mentally scrutinize their face for let's say a scar on their face or a mole for instance and make a mental note(something that's unique to them) incase I meet them in the future.It's difficult. I am a depressive and on anti-depressants for over 20 years(on and off),I put it down to this but now I'm hearing it could be an illness. Does anybody know if this is so...? I'm sick of people thinking I'm arrogant or rude as I'm naturally a very friendly person.:confused: ThanksReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
