How Things Look To Someone Who Is Colorblind
Shades and Grays: Just like the old black and white film. Different colors are actually brighter/darker compared to each other. These shades let colorblind patients tell some differences, but a green and blue of the same hue will appear the same. Many phone cameras or computer photo programs can give a "black and white" effect, so play with this if you can and you'll see what they see. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Normally: I am guessing that you yourself are color deficient in some way. We define the spectrum of what is seen by the "normal" as normal color vision.

What could be wrong with someone who can't form words or pronounce them properly? This happens occasionally to someone i love.
Can you clarify?: Thirty thousand different proteins go to creating the brain, and no two are alike. Different people are good at different things, and this is probably a good thing overall for humankind. Someone who has an occasional problem with single words may just be different. However, episodic periods where it's hard to put all the words together suggests transient ischemic attacks, an urgent medical problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: If the strabismus is in childhood, then usually the vision in one eye is supressed and everything looks normal to this child.

Why does somebody stutter? Are there ways a person can train himself not to stutter, without hiring a specialist?
Defect: Stuttering is a left frontal cortex brain disorder, that one is born with. It is difficult to learn how to not stutter without an experienced therapist. Perhaps reading appropriate speech therapy articles could help. Sort of learning how to perfect your piano playing without an instructor. It can be done, just takes a lot longer and ultimately may not work out as well. ...Read more
Just be You: As a cancer survivor myself, I believe meeting the challenges of the disease is similar to attacking other challenges in life. Anyone who helps with any of life's struggles like grieving, marital issues (or whatever) can be rewarded with your friendship, kindness and empathy for THEIR problems as well. There is no special approach for aiding you through your illness that I can see. ...Read more
Patience: Yes, it can be difficult to develop a relationship with someone who has selective mutism. You have be ready to work on this over a long period of time.

You have to plan on the relationship developing slowly with the gradual building of trust. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Neurological/psych: It is possible that there is some rare and unusual neurological problem if this is a young person, or that if it is an older person there may have been a stroke in a speech area.

The transplant team: notified, and places all corneas and other organs that are donated on ice to keep it viable for the patients who will be needing it from the transplant bank.

A "quotaholic": But don't quote me on that. An addiction is a persistent, compulsive dependence on a behavior or substance.

Philosophical: The question of whatever one person experiences, especially sensory (light, sound, touch, etc.) is always in the philosophical discourse. We can describe the experience to each other but we also have been trained to see and experience things in parallel ways. Given the similarity of the anatomy and physiological, it is probably the same, but there is no absolute way to prove it. ...Read more
