I found out my brain was a bit different a few years ago. My husband was telling me about this man he saw and how he looked just like he had pictured a character in a book he had been reading. And I couldn't understand what he meant. I love reading too, but I've never thought about how the characters look like other than how they are described by the author.
So I started asking him questions about it and found out he could actually make pictures in his head. In hindsight it makes me feel a bit silly, but I had never thought about other people being able to do this. And I started asking other people about it and found out that everyone else seemed to be able to do this too.
Earlier today a Facebook friend posted an article about aphantasia and it made a lot of sense to me, so that's why I'm here.
