This is a thread about one particular type of disability: the lack of a sense of smell. I started this thread in hopes that I could find others like me, who can not smell.
My own lack of smell actualy stems from a problem in the gray matter between my ears. Apparently, the part of my brain that allows me to have a sense of smell is damaged, but my nose works perfectly fine. My disability results in an altered sense of taste, and my idea of good food is based more on the texture than other people. While I can not sense smell, my nose ocassionaly sens out "do not like!" signals to my brain, so I can sometimes tell if something smells bad.
I plan on getting a sniffing pig eventualy, which is my version a seeing eye dog.
