No Smell Thing..

I have never been able to smell. I only realized when I was about 10 years old. I told my parents over and over again but to them it was so foreign and incomprehensible that thy did not take me seriously for some time. In my early teens my father who is a doctor took me to get an MRI scan but there was nothing out of the ordinary on it. I still have no real understanding of the condition and know of no research into its causes/possible treatments. My experience has not been particularly unpleasant. No one is unkind to me because of it or treats me as disabled. I do not dwell on the condition but I would live to get more information about it.
It's nice to hear some stories!

My dad still don't accept that I have Anosmia. But you're entirely right that we do not dwell on this condition. It's just nice to learn more about it.
