Share Your World: June 5, 2017

This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this!

After surgery, when I couldn’t smell anything!

What’s your strongest sense? Smell. (I must have been a dog or cat in a past life.) Many of my memories are based on smells. It was so weird after my brain surgery when I couldn’t smell anything at all for a week or two because the tumor was removed through my nose. And it wasn’t just like when you have a cold and can’t smell anything, this was a total, complete loss of the sense. I was lucky to get it back so quickly; many people experience a loss for months to a year! And it affects your sense of taste, too…I didn’t want to eat at all because what’s the point of eating if you can’t even remotely taste or smell your food? My husband had to practically force-feed me.

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey) For the past couple of months, Dopey. The brain fog from my POTS is so bad, I feel like parts of my brain have been disconnected from each other. I’m no longer capable of multi-tasking. I have to really analyze and think through even the simplest things for them to make sense. It’s maddening.

If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would that be? I liked being 30. Old enough to be treated as an adult, but still quite young in the grand scheme of things.

List of Jobs You Think You Might Enjoy: Even if you aren’t thinking about a career change, it can be fun to think of other jobs you might enjoy. [Remember: This is SYW where even your dreams can become reality.]

  • Writer
  • Movie/TV director
  • Pastor
  • Photographer

Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? Last week we celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary! David worked all day and I slept all day. It was great. (And we still haven’t watched our wedding video.)

This week I hope to get some good reading done. I was moping this morning and I always buy books when I’m mopey…so I’ll have some good ones arriving over the next week or two. Hehe.

    1. Yeah, I’ve actually had a fairly decent week! Ugg, not being able to smell anything drove me up the wall! You don’t realize that absolutely everything, even just the air inside your home, has a smell until you can’t smell anything! Food was just gross because there’s texture so you expect it to taste like what it looks like…but when it tastes like nothing, it’s awful. Imagine drinking orange juice and only being able to feel the sensation as the liquid slides down your throat. Blech! ?
