Well, North America is a pretty large space, so I am going to focus on my own backyard, of which I am fairly centrally located in SW New Hampshire and most of my family in Maine. So I am hoping to hear from other's in New England who might be interested in starting up a conversation and then eventually meeting up, maybe in rotating locations for folks who can travel to enjoy some conversation about our brains, life, interests, and whatever else strikes our fancy. My email is available on my profile as well, I am too shameless to hide my identity =)

Thanks Leslie for the response! Sorry for the delayed reply, just moved into a new home and had to wait for the darn cable company to get a tech out here and hook up the internet! Be nice if we had a few more folks in the region! I believe there is one more gentleman who is not too far out of Boston, get one or two more bodies and we would actually have a solid foundation! As for now, I am not adverse to a planned drive or something to meet up with you and Douglas for coffee or something.

Hi,
I'd really like to meet. Somewhere in the middle of the 3 of our New England locations would be great. It would be nice to meet people who understand.
Question: have you dealt with any docs who know about this? I have not.
Best wishes,
Leslie

If we are interested in Meeting up in a centralized location we could always try for Portsmouth, NH it would be roughly an hour for the folks in Boston and Portland, longer for me from Keene, NH but it isn't really feasible to have full equidistant travel based on our points of Origin. If folks are interested we should try to plan something in the not so distant future, getting through the mountainous area I am in with snow on the roads is not my idea of a good time hehe.

If people are interested we should toss out some dates and ideas? I am a disabled veteran / artist / neurodiversity blogger so my schedule is very flexible and I could easily work around other peoples. If we want we could communicate via email or the forums.

Oh yeah, forgot in the last post...

Leslie, I will be meeting with my neurologist the last Tuesday in November, no idea what he will say on the topic of aphantasia, but I am very interested in finding out.

I'm up for meeting. I currently have a pretty loose schedule while looking for work. Portsmouth is doable. I add a 20 minute ferry commute each way and need to be back before the last boat makes me Cinderella.

Well we can't have you becoming Cinderella! mice talking your ear off, princes ensconcing you on pedestals, wicked step-sisters, I would not wish that on anyone =P If a time during the work week is manageable, I would need to be on the road back to Keene by 2:45 (save Thursdays, it would have to be earlier, kiddo has dance class) . But that still makes a lunch time doable. Guess it hinges on Leslie now anyhow!

I just joined. I'm in Boston and in mid-coast Maine. If you want to do a meetup, it might be good to start a Aphantasiacs group on meetup.com. I belong to hiking and motorcycling meetups in the Boston area... just a thought.

I could probably manage Boston easy enough with advance planning. The meetup.com idea is a good idea as well, I am terrible with these things though, scheduling is not my forte' and since my schedule is almost completely open, I feel odd trying to set a time when I have all this flexibility.
