Mirror Mirror On The Wall..... Who the hell are you!?

Forgetting your own face

The 45-year-old mother of four suffers from prosopagnosia, sometimes known as face blindness. She cannot recognise the faces of her children, her husband or even herself, after a virus struck little more than two years ago, causing inflammation in her brain and permanently harming the temporal lobe.

This is a regular morning ritual for me. It's not that I forget my face, it's just that I forget how much whiskey I drank to make me look like that. It's called prowhiskeyapukanosia.
