Yes I meant to spell it like that. A little play on words. Hehe.
Alright now to the story:
Last Friday, I woke up with a sore throat, the kind that only means I am coming down with some kind of bug. I was like oh great here it comes, right
before the weekend. Sure enough by the end of the day I was feeling very icky and had some vitamin C and tried to get a good night of sleep before
the fun started. I woke up the next day feeling like I was run over by a train.
This is where the nose sniffles and stuffiness started. I simply could not smell a thing. It almost felt like I was disconnected from the world. So
I took it easy all that day, and got some more sleep. Felt a little better Sunday, but still could not smell. Woke up on Monday for work and was
still not feeling too hot.
Anyway to make a long story short, I couldn't smell Monday through Friday.
Just this morning, I woke up and I could smell! It was like I was reconnected to the world again! I could smell the fresh air, I could smell my
shampoo, my toothpaste! I didn't realize how much I missed my ability to smell! Of course the nose is also tied to your tasting abilities, and so I
could taste properly again too!
Just goes to show how much all of our 5 senses convey our reality.
Have you ever gone without a sense for a temporary period of time?
