Anosmia

July 17th, 2010 by knitnzu

So, also since that sinus infection I have anosmia, or loss of the sense of smell, except for the smoke, which isn’t there. I put my nose in a jar of essential oil? Nothing. Cold cuts on the verge? Who could say? Not me.

Kiddo commented a few days back that the food closet stank. I reminded him I couldn’t smell anything. I asked a couple of friends with good noses, and they only smelled the spices. Then yesterday DH reeled back from the bad smell and discovered rotting potatoes.

The one good thing? These two can put their heavy breathing mouths right near my face and it’s not stinky! (well it really is, but I can’t tell).

I may buy a new refrigerator today. Ours is 30 years old. Leaking freon is a potential cause of the phantosmia, which is the last straw in the life of this fridge (not that I know it’s leaking freon, but it has age related issues, ha!). I will want to live in it today. It is just too hot and humid…
