Heya,

Not sure if anyone can relate, but usually when I'm busy during the day I sometimes have to look in the mirror to remind myself that I'm actually still "me". Even tho I don't feel a connection to my own reflection, it still kinda soothes me that I can atleast recognize myself. The feeling of having no ego/identity can sometimes be so overwhelming that I just HAVE to check if I'm still the same haha.

Also making selfies can freak me out at times, not sure why but staring at myself on a phone is just to confusing. Its like, I know i'm looking at myself but at the same time i'm like "who dis?!"

Just wanted to throw it out there.

The eyes are the window to the soul. Some research scientists have noted that if you have a soul, it resides inside your temporal lobe. The temporal lobe of

your brain is the seat of your emotions. It is where sensory input is routed so that you can evaluate your changing reality. You take your sensory inputs, consult with memory, assign emotional coloring, and you develope

a perception of what is happening and how you feel about it. Research scientists will also tell you your temporal lobe is "exquisitely prone to insult". That can happen when you introduce psychoactive chemicals into

your temporal lobe. This can cause severe trauma for some people, resulting in chronic pathology in the temporal lobe. My pathology is sufficient to be recognized by EEG. The brain has plasticity. In the early days of my

illness, my positive emotions were non existent. It took a few decades, but I got most of it back.
