Anosmia / Loss Of Smell

Anosmia, or the loss of the sense of smell, might happen as a result of injury, infection, or genetics. It is more dangerous than people generally imagine – an anosmic person might not be able to smell gas leaks, for example, or bad food.

is there hope for me after all these years?

Hello everyone.

I don't know if I was born without my sense of smell or if it was caused by something that happened at a young age. To me my taste seems fine but maybe that's because I've grown accustomed to it.

When I was around the age of 5 my sister decided it would be amusing to have me sniff something out of the palm of her hand, I think it was radox.
With being so young at the time, I can't really remember if I had a sense of smell before this or maybe even after.

Now at the age of 36 I'm sick of missing out on all the wonderful and even not so wonderful smells the world has to offer. Obviously it's dangerous too, not being able to smell if food is off, I often taste milk to see if it's off because I can't smell if it is. One of these days I'll end up eating rotten meat.

So I suppose I'm hoping you guys/girls can give me any advice or maybe even tell me there is hope for me yet?
