I’m very thankful.

This morning, for the first time in a long time, felt the need for the joy of making music. . .reached over and grabbed a whistle and played The Hunter´s House. Working on The Skylark. Looking for other joyous tunes. . .

(and FWIW, the butcher's in the pic above is my local butcher shop, when Frank Healy, the musical butcher on the shop front, was running it. The shop closed some years ago and briefly doubled as an outlet for flutes and fiddles in july 2019)

At the end of the day, a cat's a cat after all.

So can I (post-covid), thankfully, but I think my whisky tasting days may have come to a premature end. My sense of smell has not recovered and I would say I have only 60% of my original.

Moral of the story, drink your whisky while you can, and play your bagpipes even when sick - it’ll blast those alveoli back open.

Not to worry. Smell receptors will regenerate and eventually recover. :D

Hm, maybe. I was listening to interviews with several people yesterday. All of them had long term loss off smell and taste.

This article (in the Guardian today) has some perspective as well.

As the virus has supposedly not been around more than approx. a year, I'm not sure that anything really qualifies as long-term yet, unless organs (such as lungs) or other systems are damaged. I've had loss of or altered taste from dental procedures that lasted about as long and did ultimately resolve. Bad luck, and unpleasant, though.

Certainly not helpful when there's a gas leak. As for losing taste, maybe better than mint toothpaste with orange juice.

Well, imagine that instead of just having a continuous “smell survey” of your surroundings, you get bits and pieces. A waft here, a whiff there, despite that what you’re cooking usually fills the whole house with the smell of garlic and butter. Like, I’ll go “ooh, I smell garlic” and then realize “well, duh, I’m standing over a pan full of it.”

And I just can’t smell certain things. Like bleach - at all. I used to use bleach solutions for sanitizing my homebrew equipment, but I had to switch to one of those fancy sanitizers that breaks down to vinegar because I couldn’t smell when the bottles had been rinsed enough.

The most frustrating thing (aside not being able to quickly assess whether your pets cages are clean) is not being able to detect potentially dodgy food. I can stick my nose into a container, and aside from a vague odor of the contents most basic scent, it’s not really specific enough to tell if it smelled “off” or not.

This varies day to day, and breathing steam helps, but it’s definitely not back yet after almost a year.
