    Dread Meeting People In A Small Town

    Sometimes I don't remember people I just met the day before. E.g.: my son went to play at a classmate's house on a Sunday. I met the mom, chatted with her when we dropped off and when we picked up. Nice kids, nice family. The next day when I take my son to school, there's a woman...

    One Of My Prosopagnosia Stories

    First of all, let me tell you that I was not even aware that there was a word for what I have been experiencing my whole life, nor have I ever run into anyone else who has this problem of identifying people. I am terrible at recognizing both names and faces. I stumbled upon...

    I had a research assistant who was a superstar - someone who did a great job, was very smart, and was fun to be around. One day, I spent an hour meeting with her in my office. Ten minutes later, we passed in the hall.Of course, it took me several minutes to recognize her.

    Awkward.

    I first noticed that I couldn't remember faces when I realised that I couldn't recognise my boyfriend when I was 14. It's difficult to watch movies with many similar-looking characters e.g. Love Actually. It's somewhat easier to recognise people in a particular context. The...
