I have Aphantasia (little to no mind's eye). Do the rest of you actually see characters and events play out like a movie when you read?
So I recently came across the concept of Aphantasia and that others can actually form complete pictures from the descriptions given in books. This is probably a reason why I've usually preferred more visual mediums like video games, tv shows and movies.
For me, reading books tends to be a continuation of one of those mediums, rather than the launching point of interest. For instance, I'm currently reading the Witcher series after playing the games and seeing the Netflix show.
So for those with the ability to visualize, does it just happen as you quickly as you read? Or does it happen more after the fact as you recall characters and events?
Is this why people seem to get so upset because they don't like the look of actors that have been cast in certain roles? I've always felt its far more important to get the tone of the character than their appearance.

I am Toni, with an eye, just the one and I've recently been diagnosed with cancer for the 3rd time time, this time its likely to be incurable so I am making preparations to die at age 30. Ask Me Anything
I was first diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the tear gland in 2016 and my right eye was removed, I recovered well but in 2018 it relapsed locally and I had further surgery and radiotherapy. I then recovered again and believed I was clear for a second time, however this year I have been told its metastasized to my lungs, the layer of fat under my skin, bones around my ribs and spine, liver and, after several seizures this month, I have been told its in also in my brain in several areas. It has spread so fast and so far it is unlikely to be possible for anything to work in the way of a treatment however I am having chemo in an attempt to hold it off. Coronavirus had stopped the opportunity for me to get access to a trial so I am just holding onto what I can control.
I am grateful for the opportunity to prepare as many people do not get this especially at a young age and I am making the most of what time I have left, sending gifts to friends and family, taking plenty of photos for the ch

AITA for not telling the person I was dating that I have a prosthetic eye?
I (22f) have a prosthetic glass eye. This guy isn't my boyfriend, but we have gone on a few dates.
We were hanging out when this happened. I accidentally rubbed my eye wrong, and my prosthetic fell out. He screeched and jumped away. I didn't take offence - he didn't know and I could imagine being shocked seeing what looked like someone's actual eye fall of its socket.
I thought that would be the end of it, but he seemed pretty shaken up that I have a fake eye. He asks me why I didn't tell him on our first date, so he wouldn't have wasted his time. Stuff like this freak him out, and he never would have gone on dates with me had he known.
I was pretty hurt, but it wasn't like he was my boyfriend. We weren't even talking about "becoming official". So far, this was just a few casual dates.
I don't like to post here because I feel like my food doesn't meet the "eye test" but I'm proud of this cheeseburger! imgur.com/o7f5tN5

A few people have acrually said WTF when looking at my eyes
I'm 17 years old and just finished building this 14.7" f/2.89 Newtonian reflector telescope. Despite its stubby size it collects roughly 2500 times more light than the human eye and is bigger than the scope at my local observatory.
A GIRL SAID I HAD PRETTY EYES!!!
I went to lowes with my mom to get something from there. My mom left as they usually do but she gave me the card to pay. When it was time to pay we were waiting for it to confirm and she said "you have pretty eyes" and gave me a mask for free because their is a new law where people can refuse to give you service if you don't have one. I kept my cool 😎😎 and said thank you. I told my mom and she was just making fun of it. It is now a core memory which I will remember forever.

Criticizing your country doesn’t make you unpatriotic, turning a blind eye to its faults does
I criticize the United States frequently because I care about it. I want my country to be a true world leader in freedom. It’s not that currently, but it can be. Yet, whenever I bring this up I am told I’m unpatriotic. It’s not that I hate the country, it’s that I want better for it. I think that seeing faults in your country and not acknowledging them is more harmful than wanting flaws to be smoothed out.

TIFU taking my eye off my three year old for 30 seconds
So my toddler was hungry, I was in the middle of making dinner (that she probably wouldn’t eat anyway) so I gave her some popcorn and cut up an apple for her, then returned to the kitchen to finish dinner.
Everything seemed fine until she was about to go to bed for the night, when she just started crying and pointing at her nose. I shined my flashlight up there and she had shoved a god damn popcorn kernel up her nose. It was obvious that tweezers would only make it worse so I took her to the ER in our town.
The whole hospital staff thought it was pretty funny. The doctor came in and told me the popcorn kernel removal procedure is something called “the mothers kiss” and told me how to do it. I had to hold down her clear nostril, lock my mouth over hers and blow hard into her mouth. I did this and the popcorn kernel came shooting out like a fucking snot covered bullet and ricocheted around the room. We never found its landing place, we were all just happy it was out, even if I was co
