Re: VISION PROBLEM(Everything looks small and distant)
Your link got fuzzed out, but I searched for micropsia and read up on it on *********. It seems to describe the correct symptoms. Is micropsia supposed to be permanent, though? I've always slipped in and out of it.
I'm a little skeptical of the typical causes. I don't have any migraines, have never done drugs, never have had a seizure, and probably haven't suffered and physical trauma to my head (I don't remember any). As far as the psychological causes, I can't imagine wanting to distance myself from the situation since it occurs when I have the least conflict. The other causes listed don't ring any bells either. It's still the closest thing I've seen. What do you think?
Somebody told me that I could call it "focal indifermity," but I can't find anything on that using any spelling variations. Maybe it's not very well documented on the Internet. I should search some academic journals. So far you're the only person I've found with similar experiences, and I've asked my eye doctor about it, even. He just said something to the effect of, "Sometimes rooms can look bigger or smaller than they are." No help there.
I can't pinpoint the first time I noticed it, but if I had it frequently enough for me to ask my eye doctor about it when I was doing therapy, I must have been pretty young. Maybe 10 or younger?
It's nice to hear that you experience it when connecting with people spiritually, as that's exactly what I was alluding to when I said "in good company." I don't want to sound like a new-age hippie, but it definitely happens during philosophical and spiritual conversations, usually with my closest friends.
