I lost my sense of smell 2 and half years ago and the world seems so so different to me.
Sometimes, I’m starting to get phantom smells and strange chemical smells that don’t exist. Strange smells when I feel emotions. The sweet smell of success is not just a saying, I get a sweet smell when I feel I’ve achieved something. It’s mad.
I really miss my sense of smell. Life seems a bit boring without it.
