Pardon me, cubed. I thought your life style will make you look like this...

But since you said you are perfectly health, then the pic is non-sense.

I think I will be like this if I keep nerding since the college and didn't quit my first job. Luckily I am always a sports guy since I was very young(Unlike Americans Chinese in my generation don't involving sports often). I could not make balance in media and real life. I remember I played Red Redemption 1 for a very long time. And once I fall in media like crazy I felt tired doing other things. That is really the thing I don't want now. I think you make it easy so you don't fall into my past situation.

That doesn't make you good, just sheltered. It's okay to try new things as long as it isn't hurting anyone. And weed is no more harmful than soda. You may not like it, but you may love it.

Holy SH*T!

I just learned that COVID can cause hyposmia and anosmia (that's loss of sense of smell to varying degrees for those unaware). And it can be permanent, as in the rest of your life!

I cook a lot... am an amateur chef. I would not be able to make these delicious meals without my nose! Flavor = Taste + Smell. Without smell there is no flavor in food. Everything would taste like oat bran.

My god... dodged that bullet!

Isn't that horrifying? I'd hate to lose such a pleasure as taste.

Horrifying indeed. Imagine trying to gauge if your meat or dairy has gone bad? You drink bad milk because you cant taste that it's bad and you get sick? My god. Terrifying! There's a reason why sense of smell is your strongest sense... It can be used to help us survive.

Hmmmm I heard of losing the taste of taste... But I didn't hear it was permanent. That's scary.

They don't know that yet. No one has had COVID for long enough to say for sure.

This. I didn't know that was a lasting issue either.

Got my test done yesterday since it's mandatory for this weekend's wrestling events. Must be a slow day, they said 3-4 days but I got mine back already. All clear! That's a load off.

Sorry I have to keep posting links for you.

Maybe you should actually click links and learn something. Just a suggestion.

The basic gist is both articles:

A large number, not all, Covid-19 patients report loss of their sense of smell or taste. So far, this has proven to be temporary, lasting up to 6 weeks after Covid recovery. However, some researches believe that this could lead to permanent loss of ability to smell but not a ermanent loss of ability to taste, though the two are related.

This is because the enzymes of the nasal cavity: Aldehyde dehydrogenases, cytochrome P-450-dependent monooxygenases, rhodanese, glutathione transferases, epoxide hydrolases, flavin-containing monooxygenases, and carboxyl esterases... these enzymess can be damaged.

Always thought it was odd that the loss of sense of smell was considered so unusual with this, considering the average cold can decrease or deaden it, too, and who hasn't had that happen. Permanence on the other hand... Eek. Maybe the inflammation for some is enough to do some tissue damage.

Thank you. Loss of taste and smell is something I've heard in the news since the beginning and something that I fear he most. My grandma lost her sense of smell when she was young because of a serious illness, not sure if it was a severe flu or pneumonia. She never got it back for her whole life, so... yes, it is something that can happen.

Oh, you're an idiot. My bad.

Yes, loss of smell/taste is a well documented thing. What isn't is actual long term data on the recovery of such. Because there isn't any -- as I said.

I wonder if I take smell for granted, because aside from it's ties to taste, it'd probably be the sense I'd choose to lost first, if I had to. Sure, I like a good scent, but I think I could live without it. I'd probably miss the smell of food most, or the nostalgic memories that a certain scent can bring, but not as much as taste, sight, touch, or sound.

I don't know. First cases of Covid were registered more than one year ago. Isn't one year long term enough? I mean, we have been able to create a vaccine already, how can we keep saying we don't know enough about it?

There is nobody who had it a year ago complaining about seeing no improvement in smell/taste. That's not a thing. What you're seeing is people complaining about this one, two months later and everybody getting scared.

If those enzymes are permanently damaged, though, seems like yes, that could happen. Pretty sure the scientists know what they are talking about. So if they say it might become permanent, then maybe we should believe them.

Was going to joke about you knowing everyone, but I guess your state did get this mess started, so maybe you do.
