Default Feeling like you dont know your own age?

Ive read that this can occur in Schizophrenia, although it is rare. And by this I do not mean briefly forgetting your age, I mean more of a total disconnectedness or a kind of disorientation. In literature/research online, it is called “age disorientation” in the context of schizophrenia. Has anyone else experienced it?

Might have, i don't know. I'm constantly confused by my age, like I was 18 already but 23 is too much...it's kind of like hovering around the numbers but I usually get it right at the end.
Could you describe your experiences in more detail, how does it occur?

disconnected covers it! I know i am 57 but quite honestly i feel about 32. I wonder if thats a transient thing or if it happens forever.
I don't forget my age exactly but i feel much younger.

That's how I am. I feel younger than I am, and I think in younger ways.

I have wondered if I actually am older, as if my birth date is a lie.

I feel old, really old.
