I am incapable of bringing up in my mind a mental picture of anyone in my family. I recognize their picture if I see it. However, if you were to ask me what my wife's face looked like or the faces of my children or my mother's face or my brother's face I could not tell you what it looks like.

I would like to know why this is and what I can do about it.

I have no memories of any time before I was fourteen. Could this be related?

Thank You.
