I recently discovered a kind of 'disease' where the people who have it connect letters and/or numbers with colours. Let me Google it... Synesthesia, that's the one.

In the sight of the husband: "You have got to be kidding me! We have 7 more fucking months!" Wife: "What was that?" "Nothing, dear. I love you... Please dont hurt me..." All kidding aside, op must really love his wife, and is probably trying really hard. I give a big round of applause for Op.

80 - My point was that we can't exactly get more extreme. If you're able to actually understand what people say, maybe you would have realized that that's what my comment meant? As you said, literacy, it's our friend ;)

Kind of does sound orange, plastic & sharp. Tabitha... My daughters name is Zandalee. It's rare. See if she likes that name.

177, synesthesia is not a psychological disorder, it's a neurologic particularity. Some connections in the brain that remained when they get erased in most people's brains. In fact, everyone has synesthesia when they're still a baby.

Tabitha is a ugly name anyway. YDI op what a cruel joke to play on your wife.

Actually, it can also be OCD, which holds unfounded superstitious values, the thought of T being evil is an obsession itself.

Sounds like sensasia - I believe that's the name for the disorder where you perceive numbers, letters, sounds as something they are not such as color

Synesthesia is the word you're looking for. Synesthetics experience senses that are very strongly linked, like tasting colour or seeing sound. I taste sound, myself.

124- I can see that being a really annoying form. Having numbers be not only color but tactile for me can make shopping annoying I know. I see sounds as colours too... Or I did. It seems to have vanished after a head injury. I kinda miss it :(

Dafuq? I still think that's crazy considering your wife is a hormonal bomb because she is pregnant. Can't blame her though.

There's a similar one where some people associate letters and numbers with genders as well. I have the gender one and my best guy friend has the colour one xD

Also Synesthesia. There's over a hundred different types; it's a cross-wiring of any two 'senses'? The gender form is a muted form of personification synesthesia, in which various letters/numbers have personalities. The colour one is grapheme->colour, one of the more common forms.

It has to do with two parts of the brain being "connected". When you see a number or letter, the part of the brain that responds to color, or sound, also responds. This causes numbers and letters to have a "color". Some people also "feel" when they hear music. No one knows what causes it, it just happens to some people.

a) omg everyone stop calling it a disease for fuck's sake. words have meanings. b) actually they've done quite a few studies on it and found that the reactions are completely consistent, researchers are pretty much in agreement that even if they can't find exactly what causes it or see it in brain scans it's definitely real. c) it's really not that trippy. it's just there. absolutely nothing like walking around on an acid trip or being psychotic.

It is not a disease. And no it would not be anything like an acid trip to these people who have it because it is normal for these people. They have had it for their entire life.

158- 4 is definitely pink- and fuzzy! But 8 isn't green- 7 is! He's mean and prickly too. :/ 8 is blue to me. 3 is butter yellow, and 6 is silver. Seeing a fml about synesthesia totally made my night. :)

Yes, although I don't believe it's a disease, it's just your brain has somehow coming to associations. Granted it is an abnormality but I don't know that it's caused by anything or is adverse in any way. You can also make associations with sounds, textures, feelings, vibes, concepts, shapes even I bet... I have it, for example A is red, B is blue, and C is cyan, 1 is white, 2 is blue, and 3 is green.

It sounds similar, that he would have an emotion for a color that he'd attribute to a person. Does he give colors to absolute strangers or does he have to meet them first?

I have this, but I would never in a million years be pissed off at someone who didn't understand how I perceive such things. Pregnant or not, that's a bitch move.

Wait, those are actual conditions? I've always imagined letters and numbers as having genders and even personality traits. Then again, I've always had a pretty wacky imagination and way of thinking so maybe that's why.

I can't blame her for disliking the nane... Tabitha sounds like a cat's name, not a human's. If it is a human's name it sounds like it would belong to a snarky Gothic chick.

I know a girl named Tabitha. She's one of the sweetest girls I know. And why would you name a cat "gazelle"?

my soon-to-be step sister is a Tabitha, and she is a total bitch. OP, please do not name your kid Tabitha. she would probably hate it in this day and age anyway

As a woman I feel really sorry for men who have to put up with it knowing full well my boyfriend will have to one day. It's not even like you men do anything wrong (apart from suggest cat names perhaps). Good luck with mother and baby op :)
