I might have prosopagnosia like Brad Pitt

Does anybody of you have this condition with the strange Greek name of PROSOPAGNOSIA- The inability to recognize other peoples faces.

Can be sooo embarrassing.I talk to someone, it is a good time, we have fun. next day- I don't recognise this person because all people seem to have the same facial features.

At least I know I am not alone with this rare condition. Brad Pitt seems to have it, as Newspapers here in 🇨🇭 middle Europe reported last week.
My dad and my Uncle have it, and so did my late Grandpa.
There is no cure. I do have thick glasses because of high short sightedness, but they dont help for this condition.

Anybody out there who has the same problem? #InvisibleDisability #InvisibleDisabilitiesWeek #shortsighted #Blindness #EDS #Autism #brad Pitt

High Myopia and Prosopagnosia

Hi Mighties,

My atypical hEDS goes together with High Myopia. I have like minus 7 dioptria left, minus 5.75 on my right eye. So I wear those glasses with quite thick glass.

My problem in society is that I can't recognise people by seeing their face.
So I might spend an evening chatting and talking and having fun with a couple of people I just met.
Next day- really embarassing🙈- I dont recognise the person any more.
This makes me look arrogant.

I have read in media, that Brad Pitt seems to have the same problem, but he does not know anybody else with this problem called Prosopagnosia- the inability to recognise people by their face.

At least I am not alone with this problem. My Dad and my Uncle, both with even higher Myopia than me (-15 or so), also have Prosopagnosia. We recognise people by their gaith. So when somebody stands or sits down, it is impossible to recognize this person 🙈

Does anybody out there also have Prosopagnosia? #eds #Depression #myopia #visual impairment #brad Pitt #bendy #SocialAnxiety #Blindness #Blind
