@MissCountryGirl727:  Wow. I totally had this as a kid and I remember it very vividly although it’s been many many years. Like that link says, it usually happened to me at night, and generally only when I was sick/had a fever. Guess I outgrew it. I never knew it was a thing that had a name or that happened to other people – I thought it was just freaky me.

@MissCountryGirl727:  Part of the description about seeing body parts in an incorrect size reminds me of Body Dismorphic Disorder, which I’m 90% sure I have. I see other people and think I’m the same size as them, when I’m actually a good bit shorter and more petite.

I’ve had audio distortion before. I still have it sometimes, but definitely had it more when I was a kid. I thought it was connected to derealization/depersonalization. Never heard of the Alice in Wonderland syndrome before.

ETA: I guess some people consider AIWS to be a part of DR/DP.

@badabing88:  I have the same thing. I think I’m the same size as someone else I’m near, and then am told or see that I’m actually way smaller. It’s so weird.
