Can't You Smell The Coffee?

The answer is no, I cannot. I have lost my sense of smell.

I had a sinus infection a few months ago which went on for weeks before finally going to the doctor. I got a "sinus coctail" shot in my ass and a round of anti-biotics.

My head is clear now, but I cannot smell a damn thing. This can be a good thing as now my shit don't stink. At least to me. But if I step in dog poop in the yard I would like to know it before others ask me " Hey, do you smell dog shit?" And it would be a good thing to smell smoke if the house is burning.

Along with the loss of smell I get the added bonus that I now cannot taste anything. Nothing. It's very frustrating to sit at the table where everyone else is making yummy sounds while we are eating and to me it all tastes the same. Bland.

My world is a lot less wonderful now.
