Anosmia anyone?
ok so random fact about me- i am completely anosmic! i have never been able to smell anything in my life
it's funny because i love to bake and am really good at it but everyone asks how i can be if im unable to smell. as if baking actually requires a sense of smell...
anyway, it can be a gift when i raise maggots, but last year i had maggots in a closed room and stank up a whole building! also today i learned that citrus fertilizer smells really bad!
anyone else anosmic or know of any anosmics? anyone got a good no-smell story to share?

What do you charge per 1000 count for the maggots?

No smell means no taste I would have to self terminate if I couldn't taste food.

RE: Anosmia anyone?
I don't smell super well. I've had sinus problems since I broke my nose when I was 10 and it affected my sense of smell. Unlike you I hate to cook. If I could just take a pill for all my nutrition I would. But I do smell...... Dodgy .......um.....hummm.... let me qualify that. I mean MY NOSE doesn't smell odors, I don't have a great sense of smell. My taste buds aren't the best either. I think the two are interrelated.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Friend of mine suffered a whiplash injury in a rear-ender, and lost his sense of smell for most things—which led to his subsequent lack of interest in foods or wines.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

I have a poor sense of smell, I think. Often people smell things that I cannot.

But can I still smell things.

I have an amazing sense of smell all the more incredible considering I smoke, I actually freak out if I get a cold and cannot smell and seriously wouldn't want to live without it

My sense of smell has been getting smaller as I get older. I can still smell everything, but not as vividly as before. I assume it's the same for scent as it is for eye sight.

I don't set an alarm, I wake up to the smell of coffee.... love it! Makes me happy waking up!

RE: Anosmia anyone?
My wife's niece and nephew gave me a cold a few years back and I lost much of my sense of smell and taste. When it started to comeback it was somehow different. Now I don't know if I simply became accustomed to the "new" or if it's back to how it was originally. Weird.

You can still smell though, that's important I don't wanna live in a word without smell.
