Finding Out I Have Synesthesia

I was 10 and I was reading the book A Mango Shapped Space. I had read it and I was surprised that not everyone has colors for their numbers and letters. I was thinking that I must have a really mild form of synesthesia because I am an associator not a projector. (I didn't know the names at the time though). I did a lot of research on it for about a year then I told my parents about my synesthesia. I thought that they would have it too but no one in my family (even my extended family) had it. I did even more research and I found out that I had gotten synesthesia from a series of many ear infections from when I was five. I love having synesthesia and i don't see how anyone can live without it! I told my closest friends and they all thought it was really cool. I have never met anyone with synesthesia. Leave what colors your letters, numbers days of the weeks, and months in the comments.

When I was little I talked about numbers and colors and my mom just passed it off as a three-year old trying to get attention...but that was not the case. I finally confronted her a few years ago after reading the same book! I have the whole numbers, letters, days of the week, months, and different intruments type, with all of them having different colors. Some words also have colors, and the color is usually dictated by the color of the first letter.<br />
A=baby blue with white flecks<br />
B=tannish-yellow with brown streaks, like a rotting banana<br />
C=sunshine yellow with hints of orange<br />
D=deep, dull tealy-green<br />
E=bright red with overtones of glossy orange<br />
F=magenta with streaks of purple<br />
G=watermelon green with earthy green<br />
H=sunset orange<br />
I=deep navy blue<br />
J=also deep blue with black streaks<br />
K=orangey-tan<br />
L=bright red, sort of sparkly and glossy<br />
M=Purply-red but with glossy red<br />
N=bright. bright, BRIGHT red...I hate this letter because it always hurts my eyes<br />
O=pale, pale bluey-grey<br />
P=light pink with streaks of darker magenta<br />
Q=light lavender<br />
R=pretty much black with a little dark blue and brown<br />
S=fluorescent yellow with sparkles<br />
T=hunting orange<br />
U=grey-blue, but dark<br />
V=snot yellow<br />
W=deep glossy green<br />
X=dull, angry red<br />
Y=another dark green with hints of blue<br />
Z=plain yellow with orange streaks<br />
<br />
Sunday=pale yellow<br />
Monday=deep purple<br />
Tuesday=peach colored and bright<br />
Wednesday=teal green<br />
Thursday=angry orange<br />
Friday=dull red with magenta<br />
Saturday=yellowy-green<br />
<br />
January=deep peach with orange<br />
Feb.=purple-red<br />
March=bright green<br />
April=teal<br />
May=yellow and bright<br />
June=deep light green, light green but with something else overlaying it<br />
July=definitely a deep, dull green<br />
August=pale blue<br />
September=husky orange shot with red<br />
October=navy blue<br />
November=red<br />
December=baby blue with gray overtones<br />
<br />
