Its been a couple of months since I figured out, that I have aphantasia, since I'm not able to imagine anything (pictures, colours, smells, sounds, ...) at all.

What I realized though is, that I am able to see yellow-orange-red-ish with closed eyes, as long as the sun is directly shining on my closed eyes. So the first time in 21 years I was able to actually see the colour "sky-blue" with eyes closed, when I was at the beach with my mom. At first I was kinda shocked, 'cause I wasnt able to tell if my eyes are now open or not. It took some more minutes, that this blue colour was also caused by the sun. And it might wasnt healthy but I constantly tried to recreate my position and everything so I could be able to "see" it again. It worked after directly looked in the bright sun, so it was an amazing day at the beach.

Moreover, I was so shocked that I told my mom, who kinda looked at me, like I'm crazy.
