After my cancer treatment, my sense of smell is extremely sensitive. I can detect any smell at a distance and I really don’t like it at all. I’m careful to use certain fragrances and I don’t like it when someone uses too much. My fragrances must be very soft with scents of flowers and citrus. When I feel depressed I look at the mirror looking for answers sometimes I can’t find. However, when I just need to put some of my favorite fragrances to feel at peace with myself.

    I am facing possible treatment for cancer – I think I will smell more deliberately right now and see whether it is different later. (And, yes, I do realize how funny that sounds, but I can never resist a joke.)


    1. I hate the word “cancer”. I wish they can find a cure very soon. I’m sorry you have to go through the treatments. They are not fun. Keep your sense of humor, it’s the best medicine.


  2. Margret, so sorry to hear of your cancer but I wish you success with the treatment. The change in the sense of smell is interesting, isn’t it. Some years ago I had pneumonia and lost my sense of smell. For many months after my illness I could smell nothing – no flowers, spices, food; even the burning toast. Life lost a lot of its enjoyment for me. Thankfully, over the course of about two years, some of the sense has returned, though not to anywhere near the acuteness of smell that I had previously. Still, I’m grateful to be healthy and hope that you will soon be too.
