Imagine getting lost in the most familiar places. Say, along a route you drive all the time, standing on your own street, or even inside your own house. That’s the life 65 year-old Sharon Roseman, of Highlands Ranch, leads. She’s one of the first people ever to be diagnosed with something called Developmental Topographical Disorientation. Until a few years ago, she didn’t even know her condition had a name, or that anyone else suffered from it. As she tells CPR's Ryan Warner, she’s now helping connect others who have DTD.
