My cousin and I traveled a very large part of the country with nothing other than a Rand Mcnally map. If I had to do it over again I'd still use the map, it's just not the same adventure. We had no plans except a general direction and that was part of what made it such a great trip.

I often talk to myself using a plural format, like there is more than one of me.. For example, I'll say to myself - "lets go down town" or if I'm trying to figure something out I'll say to myself,"how about we do it this way".. I'm worried it could lead to split personality syndrome.. 8-)

No matter where I go I meet new people all the time and they act like they know me.

I am terrible at remembering names. Even when I had my auto repair shop I would write the name of the person on the back of the oil change sticker before sticking it on the windshield, so when they came in I can look quickly and refresh my memory. Numbers I can remember for yrs and years.

Mind block? Get one? I was born with one! I can't remember names or even faces. I've said for years I'd be wealthy if I could remember names & faces. Nothing more inviting than walking in a place & being called by your name. I even tell customers "I do pretty good work, but I'm an airhead when it comes to names & faces". I hope I never witness a bank robbery. "What did he look like?" HA! Unless he had a third eye, forget it.

Faces I don't have a problem with, I've been able to spot people I knew 25 years ago if they didn't change that much. Names is another story.

When I used to do a recycling route in that shitty city, people would constantly stop me and ask where a certain street is. Then they'd get pissed and say "how the hell do you not know where that is??" :lol: Then I'd say "I just work here - I'm not a damn atlas!" I can't remember NAMES to save my life. ANY names streets or people. I also have a hard time remembering faces. It's embarrassing sometimes ... One time I thought this guys girlfriend was his SISTER .... when I called her by his sister's name, boy she got all pissed off ... :lol: :oops:

Richard

Does this descibe what you are feeling?

Dysphasia, Nominal
A language dysfunction characterized by the inability to name people and objects that are correctly perceived. The individual is able to describe the object in question, but cannot provide the name. This condition is associated with lesions of the dominant hemisphere involving the language areas, in particular the TEMPORAL LOBE. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p484)


If it happening alot you might want to get an MRI done.
