I am a synesthete.
Synesthesia (also spelled synæsthesia or synaesthesia, plural synesthesiae or synaesthesiae)—from the Ancient Greekσύν (syn), "together," and αἴσθησις (aisthēsis), "sensation"—is a neurologically-based condition in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.
I see numbers, letters, days of the week and month in colors. I also see people in color. Now I don't mean black and white as in skin color. I mean actual color. My mom is orange. My dad is black. My brother is yellow. My grandma is royal purple. My best friend Whitney is violet. My friend Sammie is light green. My friend Chase is brown. My grandpa is hunter green. I could go on about the different people in my life and their unique color. But there is one person in my life that seems to have multiple colors. My Nick. He isn't just one specific color. He has so many. When I see him or picture him in my head a whole slew of colors splash across my mind. I am not exactly sure what that means but if I were to guess.....I think he just might be my other half. He is the one that colors my life.
This is the closest thing I can show you of what I see when I think of him.
