Reflection. Following a sequence of temporal lobe seizures, I lost positive emotions. My theory is that recognition is not based solely on visual information. The image is identified

and associated with emotional information. When that emotional coloring is missing, the image seems foreign. Even when it is your own mirror image. Similarly, family members can

suddenly seem alien and unfamiliar. Some research scientists stated "The temporal lobe is exquisitely prone to insult". I agree. (Whether it is from drugs that target the functions

of the temporal lobe, or emotional stress.)

Reflection. I look at myself in the mirror and feel so weird and fake. I was having problems recognizing my own voice for a while, but i just got over being sick and for whatever reason something clicked in my brain about my voice being mine.

As I've had DP/DR, I find that I deal more with not recognizing myself in the mirror. It tends to be worse when I'm going through a relapse or if I stare in it for too long.
