I Mistake Strangers As My Dad And Sister. Is This Normal?
We are sorry to hear that you do not see your dad and sister that often. It is normal to see similar features in strangers that remind you of your family members. However, you mention panicking daily because you see someone that looks like them. We recommend reaching out to a trusted adult, school counselor or your doctor and let them know what is happening. They may be able to help you understand why you feel this way and help you get professional help if necessary.
