The way I had Freguli-like expirences from my early childhood, is when I had profound symptoms of Prosopagnosia, when I saw everyone's faces, it looks like dark web mask, thought, and misidentified my family with others, because I thought that they are all the same.

I was aware that that I had severe developmental problems and was self-aware of Fregoli-like expirences throughout my childhood.

I knew that my beliefs were false, but my belief was still fixed, and sometimes misidentified my family with others, but I kept it to myself, because I knew that I would come off as strange.

I have been wondering. If it wasn't a delusion, I don't know what else to call it, because what I had is similar to Fregoli-like experiences.

I did have a little bit of anosognosia, but not to severe extent.

it seems like you are doing a great job of sorting things out, I applaud you for this, self understanding is so helpful when adjusting/ making accommodations in life to make it better.

You are taking your history apart bit by bit and growing by leaps and bounds. I can see it in your posts.
Cheering you on. I wish I had been able to do this at a young age, but its never too late. Best wishes!

I used to have Fregoli delusion in the past, but I was still self-aware that it was a fixed false belief. How is if possible that I hallucinated that everyone is the same person, but was aware that it is false?
