(Belated) Link Friday: Prosopagnosia

Later in the week I'll be posting about how having prosopagnosia (also known as face blindness) has effected me.  It's not uncommon for aspies to have problems recognizing others because so often we don't look at faces, but as I've gotten older and started learning to look near and at faces I still can't recognize others.  I have problems finding myself in group pictures, especially if everyone is wearing the same thing, and have gotten lost in crowded areas because I couldn't recognize my parents.
