Lost and Found…

I’m less than two weeks into my steroid course and things have improved dramatically in the nasal department. I would say I’m sniffing at around 80%, which is a lot more than where I thought I’d be at this point. If it keeps up at this rate I should be able to avoid going under the knife (or tube, or pincers, or whatever the hell it is that they use for that kind of thing – I don’t want to know), even if it does mean going through this twice-daily routine every so many months.

I knew I had lost my sense of smell – probably a short time after it happened – but it never struck me that regaining it would be such a monumental shift, or indeed make that much of a difference. Of the five primary senses, if you had to get rid of one, smell seemed like the most disposable. While I still think that is the case, it’s loss over the last couple of years has certainly made me appreciate it more.

Onwards…

    To be honest, I was a little nervous about you getting your sense of smell back, given that it was gone before I met you. However, I have to say I am enjoying witnessing you rediscovering the good .. and bad odours in and around the house. I am especially enjoying you sniffing my hair and discovering my perfume and in turn.. learning that I do smell nice 😊
