Is this an acute thing (ie just started) or something that you've been noticing for a long time?
... when I look at myself in the mirror it just doesn't really look like me, it's like I can see that it's me but something is off. Anyone know anything about this?
Individuals who experience depersonalization feel divorced from their own personal physicality by sensing their body sensations, feelings, emotions and behaviors as not belonging to the same person or identity ... Also, a recognition of a self break down (hence the name).
Just out of curiosity:Have you noticed any other problems in recognizing faces in general?Have you had any odd sensations regarding friends or relatives (someone you have an emotional attachment to) like the feeling that it's them, but not quite "really" them? Do you notice any other unusual problems regarding recognizing objects in mirrors, or the direction of movement of objects when they are reflected in mirrors?
I've noticed that, while I'm no older, my reflection has become more grey and wrinkled over the last couple decades. Mysterious.
... I remember my grandmother saying that at times she'd "forget" she was old, and feel this strange surprise when she looked in the mirror. Maybe our mental concept of ourselves doesn't keep perfect pace with physical changes.
