I have something very strange to be thankful for this Thankful Thursday. I'm sure a lot of you have been hearing on the news this week about a over-the-counter drug that has caused people to lose their sense of smell. Well, a couple of years ago I lost my sense of smell, not because of this drug but because of a severe sinus infection.
Smell is something I always took for granted until I know longer had it. Along with losing my sense of smell I lost my sense of taste because like 90% of your taste comes from smell. It scared me because I couldn't smell even bad things like smoke or gas.
In the last year my smell has been coming back slowly which I am so thankful for because the Dr. told me that the chances of it ever coming back were slim to none. I don't always smell things in the right way like peanut butter and hot dogs (actually these makes me very sick to smell) but I am so thankful that I am getting some of it back.
It might not be a bad thing I can't stand peanut butter anymore because that was one of my favorite foods before.
What are you thankful for today?
