Overcoming obstacles with Optimism

Do You “Like” Me?


           Facebook can cause a lot of confusion for someone who cannot recognize faces.  One lady recently asked me to friend her.  There were hundreds of women with her same name.  The next day I went back and told her I couldn’t find her.  She said, “Just find me by my picture.”   I responded, “Umm…Remember?  I am face blind.”  We had a good laugh. 

Realistically, it is an impossible challenge for me.  I can look someone up by their name but have no ability to recognize the face on a profile picture.  With prosopagnosia, I cannot identify a person a second later let alone when I get home and look up a name in the Facebook search. 

To make it easier to connect using social media, I have set up a new Facebook page.  At https://www.facebook.com/FindingStrengthToStandAgain, I will have a more successful opportunity to continue conversations with everyone I have met through blogging and the wonderful participants who have taken time out of their busy schedules to listen to me speak at various venues.  I will share every day, random thoughts.  These thoughts, on remembering simple joys and gifts of life, will be a quick read with couple of lines rather than a full page.  Facebook has been a great way for me to stay connected to friends all over the world.  I look forward to now reading more about you and hearing your thoughts on this new connection.  Come join me.
