I didn’t realise it until this week that I had lost my sense of smell. I only know it now because it has come back. Unfortunately it has come back big time. It was last week in the evening and I was convinced that there was someone in the kitchen cooking something. I knew this wasn’t possible as it was 9pm and that would be strange. Well for most people. For the last week I can smell absolutely everything. That doesn’t sound bad but when you haven’t smelt anything for over a year my brain is on overload. It is so hard to describe it is like every smell is ten times more than it should be. I guess my brain just has to get used to all these smells again. I imagine that a baby must go through this, it is probably why they cry so much. If I could cry perhaps I would. I need to ask someone about this but there is no one. Of course I could Google it but it is not the same. The person who I want to ask would just say it is normal but it is not normal to me, it’s weird.

I have a brain injury, a hypoxic one. It has been life changing to me and I don't seem to want to stop talking about it. I think people are getting bored of me so a blog will hopefully help. Oh yeah, it has caused me to have mental health problems too...great. View all posts by A Recovering Brain
