Usually I have trouble remembering faces. I am terrible with names but I also don't recognize people who I don't know well sometimes.

 

Lately, the opposite is happening. Everyone looks familiar. At airports, stores, anywhere. I have asked some people if I have met them, but they haven't so I don't ask anymore.  I guess it is like deja vu.

 

I am not really sure where this goes. I don't know that it is a symptom or anything, it's just something I am noticing.

I just smile at everyone in the hallway. I work at a hospital so I've smiled at random people that I think I might know. So no one can say I ignored them. Not everyone smiles back.

That is strange but I get it too. People everywhere look familiar. Like they are all linked to one person. But I don't know anymore. I just let it happen.

Having trouble recognising even people you know well is a known problem for people with schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder, there have been studies on it. Finding everyone familiar is something I don't know about, but maybe it is a variation ? ? ?

I have always had trouble recognising people, it has caused quite a lot of hassle in the past.

thanks jacq. Yes, the not recognizing people is a problem.  

 

This is annoying, too because i am still not sure if I know people.

 

I don't think it has caused big issues for me, more like stress, and i already have a ton of anxiety
