Fabulous invalid

This sinus infection is getting old in all senses of the word. Into the fourth week now, and no smell or taste for over two of them. OTOH it makes a nice change from being a super-smeller. I can wear shirts two days in a row; I'm no longer bothered by those phantom sweat smells I keep detecting in tops and coats; garbage doesn't affect me, and the equally phantom smell from a just-washed armpit no longer exists either. Of course, maybe I should worry about how I come off to other super-smellers, but really there's nothing I can do about it. Of course, neither can I smell gas leaks and such, which is why I hope to get to my doctor some time this week for antibiotics,

The lack of taste is a little more annoying. 'What if it never comes back?' Well, if it doesn't I shall soon weigh what I did in my thirties. I've had infections where taste disappeared completely: everything tasted like nothing. This isn't like that. There's still tongue taste- sweet, salty, sour (faint) and umami. Ghost tastes, which are interesting because different. I could live wihth this at a pinch.

Still feels like my other senses are blunted because my nose ones are. And I'm really tired of the eye ache and the green goop and the phlegmy cough. So let's hope antibiotics work on this.
