Body Parts as Strangers Ritch

That reminds me of a man I read about who had a stroke that affecting recognising one side of his body. He had far more trouble realising that one leg of his actually belonged to him. The nurses would sometimes find him on the floor in the middle of the night & when questioned, he said he'd found someone else's leg in his bed & tried to throw it out & always wound up on the floor. It sounds funny to hear it but really very sad.

Another woman with something similar would always carefully apply her make-up & style her hair but only on one side. Her lipstick would be applied only to the one side of her lips & end abruptly. I think it sounds horrible.
