Okay, four days since finishing the predisnolone, and about a month now on the Alpha Lipoic acid. Sense of smell still intact on waking – present all the time, not just in snatches. 101 more words

Adventures in and out of Anosmia - day 10

7:15: Three days now since I finished the Predisnolone, and the sense of smell is continuing to strengthen. Up till this morning I was unable to smell anything on waking – had to move about, go into a different room before it kicked in, but this morning I was aware of a faint perfume in the air as soon as I regained consciousness. 326 more words
