About Face Off

In the game of ice hockey, a face off is where two players on opposing teams fight for control of the puck once the puck has been dropped by the referee. Without numbers and names on the players' uniforms, I would not know who was on the ice. Prosopagnosia, the inability to recognize people using the face as the primary recognition mechanism, is a condition I have, and it affects all aspects of my life. In this blog, you will read about some of the experiences I have living with prosopagnosia. I hope you will find Face Off both entertaining and enlightening.
