Bollywood actress who played the  role of Alisha in the 2003 film Ishq Vishk recently revealed on her Instagram story that she is diagnosed with prosopagnosia. People with this disorder have trouble remembering the faces of others.

Shenaz Treasury Shared About Disorder On Instagram

On Tuesday, Shenaz Treasury took to her Instagram to share the news about the disorder. She wrote, “I have been diagnosed with prosopagnosia . Now, I understand why I've never been able to put faces together. It's a cognitive disorder. I always felt ashamed that I can't recognise faces. I recognise voices.” 

In another story, she wrote, “Signs and symptoms of face blindness/prosopagnosia. 1. You have failed to recognise a close friend or family member, especially when you weren't expecting to see them. Yes, that is me. Takes me a minute to register who the person is. Sometimes even a close friend I haven't seen in a while."

In another slide, she continued, “You have difficulty recognising neighbours, friends, coworkers, clients, schoolmates. People you know expect you to recognise them. Failing to recognise someone might make you seem aloof. Many sufferers report losing friends and offending coworkers because they have failed to recognise them. This is me.” Shenaz also wrote, “So you confuse characters in movies or on television more so than other people? Yes, I do. I can't tell the difference if two characters have the same height and build and hairstyle.” She concluded by saying, “So now please understand that this is a real disorder and not me being aloof or snobbish.” She called it a “real brain issue.”
