I'm intrigued by odd things, I also seem to have a heightened sense of smell, friends tell me I'm like wolverine with my smelling of things.Are you really? Because I'm a sharer with everything in case it might help someone or at least give them information, and I will happily post my observations.
I can catch faint whiffs of things, like vinegar and my hair mousse. I caught savory from my beef veggie soup this morning. If I try to smell it, it goes away. Today in my nose is a musty smell, like clothes forgotten in the washer.
I have the primary tastes, but nothing more sophisticated. The soup tasted savory and salty, but wasn't recognizable as beef vegetable. I took a sip of red wine vinegar and woof - I could taste that! - but it only smells faintly vinegary.
Monello is still eating things like lasagna and sub sandwiches and rotisserie chicken, even though he says he can't really taste them. My stomach has been touchy because of that Play Doh and now musty smell, so I'm keeping things simple. Pudding cups, fruit cups, oatmeal, and yesterday I had half a grilled cheese sandwich (mozz and sharp cheddar) that was tolerable.
Lack of smell is definitely a weight loss aid, unless you're just a person who eats and doesn't need to taste what it is. It's also a smoking cessation aid. I might start some centers, like Betty Ford only for food and smoking. Inject you with the rona, 4 weeks later you're skinny and smoke free.
I was just sitting here eating a Gala thinking how much it would suck not to be able to taste it.Phantom odors are mostly gone, smeller is up to maybe 50% at best, and right now I'm eating the most divine Honeycrisp apple. I'm still slightly fatigued, but the head fog has dramatically improved and the body aches are gone. I'm a little stuffy but nothing major.
Unless this is just a lull before the storm, I'm confident I'm mostly recovered from my bout with the rona.
**Referring to my sense of taste and smell.I looked back through some of the posts I could find in the one thread and another one - the best I could find is that it was only a couple of weeks total. Like I said before - part of that was the start of it and then the end of it. I'm pretty certain it was all gone by the time I tested on April 7th for COVID again. (for a procedure at the hospital) The rona was completely gone by then, too.
