Wow, this must be incredibly rough. I wish I knew how to help. Is there some kind of sensory therapy available or are you fucked?
Besides dreaming what are some other situations where having this condition sucks? Sorry never met someone with this before.
Nothing helps. Aphantasia affects everyone differently though. Fucking maps are gifts from God even though I have lived in the same area for ever. It's hard to remember how every single road is connected and all the landmarks. I can't see what I look like until I look at a reflection, I can't even imagine what my father looks like, and my house. The condition supposedly isn't rare, it's about a 1 in 50. I also feel like creative writing is extremely hard. I can't really create worlds inside my head to write about so I actually ended up using video game worlds or obscure movies as my creative writing. (I'm sorry for responding so late I don't usually come here but I will lurk more if you want to ask more questions.)>>518
I can draw like a normal person except that I only see it after I start drawing. It's hard for me to draw something that isn't simplistic.
Huh, I didn't even consider something like remembering how to get somewhere would be a part of it.
Shit was school hard? You couldn't have used pneumonic devices of any kind. Did they provide you help in any way?
Stuff like that didn't help much. I went from an A student to a D slowly as material got harder. I loved Math and Science because they had the least amount of creativity needed. But when everyone was using techniques to remember equations I was left in the dust.>>521
I feel like I only remember dreams where I have little visual experience but then it's not much that sticks out. Maybe I do remember most of my dreams but because most of the time they are without visuals I can forget them immediately.

Interesting… have you ever considered some kind of entheogen or hallucinogen?
There are natural and legal ones that could help with dreams such as:>Silene Capensis>Wilde Lettuce>Sugandi Root>Calea Zacatechichi>Holy Basil>Entada rheedii
I wish you the best of luck anon
