There is a common melody of brain injury to not be able to recognize faces only voices. If hear you they think its you, if they see you and hear you they think you are an impostor trying to pretend to be their family member. This seems to be related to that.

Ha ha! Look at all the people who didn't get the headline!

When her grandchildren visited, she wouldn't let them sit on her lap because she thought they looked repulsive.

I can't be sure this is a symptom of the stroke. Maybe the kids really are repulsive.

I've often wondered what life would be like for a person that had a combination of Tourette's and an uncontrollable phobia of ugly people. Would they just scream in public all the time?

Headline of the week candidate for sure. Well played.

FloydA: When her grandchildren visited, she wouldn't let them sit on her lap because she thought they looked repulsive.

FTA
When shown snapshots of her family, the facial proportions seemed distorted. She was even more critical of her grandkids' photos. To her, they appeared overweight and extremely tan.

That implies that her kids don't actually look like Snooki, they only appear so to her.

Seriously though, I'm with you, there's an air of "article is worthless without pics". Maybe she did short out her respect filter and is now telling it how it is, the world is full of ugly children. I'm tired of my daughters shiat, maybe the daughter I haven't seen in a while is better, etc.

I've heard of many people losing their "filter" and just being painfully blunt. I've also seen people cover for a known shortcoming by adding their own twist.

Seriously. Maybe the stroke just made her more honest.

Fantastic headline! Was listening to that song yesterday with the volume cranked to the max and the wind in my hair. Now it's stuck in my head again.

According the case study, it seems she actually does have a problem with her perception. But I wouldn't be surprised if her filter was damaged too. Mine definitely was, but to be honest that's less a result of the brain injury than it is of "for fark's sake, I almost died - why the hell am I wasting so much time tiptoeing around things?"

That certainly would have been an interesting twist to Invasion of the Body Snatchers. There are no aliens and the characters all have Capgras Syndrome.

Nobody tell M. Night Shamalamadingdong about that idea.

Dead for Tax Reasons : Strange days have found us. Strange days have tracked us down. They're going to destroy our casual joys

Uhh, I think you have the wrong song.

www.lordargent.com

People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange

No problem; you're cool. Mis-attribution is an easy mistake to make- it happens to everyone. I just wanted to be absolutely sure that I was not accidentally mistaken for the person who did write that text.

Article conveniently doesn't mention what she thinks of her own face when she looks in the mirror.
 
2012-03-15 05:33:19 PM
Rather would have had a reference to this:

Features distorted in the flickering light,
Faces are twisted and grotesque.
Silent and stern in the sweltering night,
The mob moves like demons possesed.
Quiet in conscience, calm in their right,
Confident their ways are best.

Maybe this mental disorder might explain why all the women where I live look like bipedal Jabba the Huts.

I wasn't calling the case study into question. Just carrying on a train of thought started by Floyd's post.

Maybe her family members are ugly and for the first time she's seeing them for the way they are.

I believe those were both songs by Punk Floyd, written before Davy Jones left the group.

The brain is a fascinating bundle of flesh, and so much is learned when specific areas of the brain are damaged. I get horrible migraines so I've read quite a few books on brain physiology and pathology. Fascinating stuff, but Sacks' book takes the cake. Makes Helps a migraine sufferer quietly take their meds and count their blessings.

I was born with cataracts and finally had them removed when I was 32. It took me a while to get over all the little blemishes and bumps and stuff on peoples skin. Pores are huge! Skin had always looked smooth like that Bob Guccioni vaseline lens effect. It was cool to see xmas lights without the halos and blur and I got to see individual blades of grass and rain drops for the first time but people looked hideous.
