Losing it!


I HaVe direction dyslexia (Mail). Despite visiting Salisbury hundreds of times, I would still get lost until my father-in-law mapped it out for me by marking the charity shops as places of interest!

I even get lost using a satnav, hearing it say ‘recalculat­ing route’ time and time again.

I think the condition is hereditary as on a day out, my mum would sit in her car wondering how to find her way home.

I also have poor facial recognitio­n. I hugged who I thought was my nextdoor neighbour to wish him well after an operation. The man turned out to be the owner of the local convenienc­e store. His wife was not amused.
