I don't recognize myself in the mirror?

So this is tricky to explain and it nearly happens on a daily basis.
When I look into my mirror, I always look different to myself. Not like an entire new identity, but my features' shapes change.

For example, one day I could look into the mirror and my face is oval, the next time my face looks rectangular, or one day my eyes might be big and the next they look small as fuck.

Now, I understand that this is not physically possible, I know it's my mind playing tricks on me. But it's really exhausting not knowing what you REALLY look like.

I KNOW what you all will say: why not take a selfie and see what you look like? I understand your reasoning, but that is not the point! I just want to know WHY this happens when I look into a mirror.

It's just so scary. Sometimes I literally cry because I can't believe that one day everything looks fine and the next day it all looks different.

It's been happening for so long and usually I just brush it off, but sometimes - like now - it's giving me bad anxiety attacks and I just want it to STOP.

I just put this under Health & Fitness, because HEALTH... and I have no idea under what other category this question might fit.
