I can Taste only the Extremes

 October 25, 2010, Monday
I went on my way to the office with heavy shoulders, like I'm Atlas carrying the world.
I wasn't able to fix the things I wanted to settle.
The rain is pouring so heavy like it wanted to wash away the tears. 
I have no umbrella.

I rushed through the raindrops, like I was the thunder.
"You cannot stop me, I have to be there, it's almost time, I can't be late".
I reached the office, so exhausted, all soaked in water,
With the jacket on my head and a bag on my shoulder.
What a stressful day after a devastating weekend.

Fast forward: The day after that, I had a non-stop fever. I fed myself with medicines but none cure the illness. November 30, I went home for the holiday. That same day I was rushed to the hospital and the doctor found out I had lapses. My immune system became weaker and weaker each day due to stress and allergies. They also found out that due to those factors, my sinuses were affected somehow leaving me taste and smell impaired. And now here it goes, I can taste only the extremes: (super sweet, super, sour, super salty and super bitter). For the rest of the food, they're all the same and smells the same
Because of that I  lost my appetite which made me so skinny. I never crave for anything. I want my taste buds back. I want my sense of smell to be effective again.


  1. I hope you soon get your taste buds back. There are so many wonderful tastes in the world, you want to be able to enjoy them.

  2. Oh! you poor thing... How come you told me about all of this.... Oct 25. Come on! I hope you are feeling better these days, I am sure you are... But consume anything and everything even if you don't taste them. Your body will take care of it. :-)

  4. Oh my goodness! I remember when you were sick, I didn't know that it became so serious. Do they think that your senses will return to normal? Do you find yourself enjoying very sweet sweets, at least? I'm so sorry--how miserable!
