      Re: October Army Thread 2019

      @stirlygirly - on the no sense of smell issue. Like Molls something stirred when I thought about it.
      I was talking to someone & they casually said they had no sense of smell. Didn't seem to affect them too much.
      From what he said : The plus side is, as it's linked to taste, she will never be a fussy eater - it will just be fuel - something we do to keep alive - not an obsession.
      In my view that is what nature intended for us all.
      The poor little mite
      I don't think it's the worst thing in the world Stirls and apparently kids don't even notice till school age when other kids describe a smell

      And sure isn't school where we all get a wake up call that everyone is not the same ?

      Morning,
      Haven't a clue why I'm up this early. Think I'm over excited about getting out of the house for a few hours.
      @stirly-girly............I've got more questions than answers about the sense of smell.
      How did they find out?
      Is it all smells or different ones?.............I only ask as Jenny BF has a kind of colour blindness where he can't differenciate between blues and greens. So did my dad.

      Another lovely day in Stirly-World - blue, blue sky with little puffy clouds and weather warmishly cool.

      You're right about it not being the worst thing in the world but as I said earlier, she's the lass that was born with no fingers on her right hand and they've been through a lot over that - psychologically and emotionally. She's had two surgeries, one of which didn't succeed, and she's already "different" from the other kids at school because of her hand. And you know how cruel kids can be. Anyway, I guess it's just one more thing they'll have to deal with. Acceptance is the main thing IMVHO and that's one thing that I think her Mom has not been able to deal with yet. And don't think I'm criticizing here. It's just that she was devastated when her daughter was born "different" and there is a remaining "bitterness" about her (for lack of a better word) and now this is yet another way that the child will be different from others. I guess when life throws us curve-balls, we just have to have a bigger bat!

      Must get back to business - wishing you all as great a day as you can make it!

      Ah, X-post Jackie, dear.

      I don't know how they discovered it. But apparently she has no sense of smell - not for perfumes, cleaning products, even when she goes to the bathroom (trying to be delicate here). I haven't had time to talk to him - only found out about it yesterday in a rather quick conversation that we had. Of course, one of the first things they check for is a brain tumor and luckily that is not the case. I suppose she could have been born that way and they never realized it til now. I have questions myself - about her sense of taste, etc., but they will have to wait. You have to be very, very careful questioning older son about anything, otherwise he can take things the wrong way. Like you think you know everything or you're interfering, things like that. I'll find out next week after they've seen the specialist. It's just that it's upsetting for me that they have to deal with another "different" issue with their child. Funny that Ads and your Dad had the same sight issue.

      Um, er, I wouldn't buy those curtains even as a joke. Lord, they'd give me nightmares even if I loved the Minions.... Too many peeps watching me!!

      @stirly-girly...........I hadn't forgotten your errrrrrrrrm awkward DIL.............that was me being polite............I'll bet you've wanted to throttle her many, many times.

      If I get five minutes in town there's a curtain maker near the nail place will grab some samples if I've got time. Think its going to be a dusty pink or grey.

      Wish the decorator would hurry up. Bess has had her xanax so she'll just snooze all morning.

      Image the state of our guts when we were drinking every day .....



      It's just so wonderful to 'see' how grateful you are to be sober Bridge - you just got on with it with no moaning or 'poor me'. I'm not sure you even found it that difficult this time - once you'd set your mind to it.?
      I'm sure that's a help to anyone starting out ..... you tried both sides in the past 12 months & decided life is so much better without alcohol.
      It may well still be an imbalance from the drinking. I usually get gurgling guts and bloating and reflux. Knocks it dead in a couple of days but I need high dose.

      You know what, Satz? I got away with murder this time-and this will be the last. I have to drive past the bottle shop on the way home from work and haven't even looked once or thought about it. I did have good habits in place for a long time before so I can draw on those but I have strenuously avoided any of my known triggers - people, places, events. I don't want to go out anyway so I'm not missing out and that can be ongoing as far as I am concerned. Being happily sober and busy, looking at what you've gained in gratitude will do it. But thanks

      Bridge - any chance of you posting some pics of the greenhouse? I would love to have my own house and property big enough to do something like that. I do have window planters but their nothing compared to a real garden you can potter in.

      I will certainly do that. It's only tiny which is why I want the upgrade but even something that size, it's amazing what you can do with it.
      Okay - here's something that I could use some input about - that is if anyone of you have ever heard of such a thing. Older son's older daughter - she turns 6 next month apparently has no sense of smell. Jaysus. Only found out about it today. They've had her tested for brain tumour and the likes and all is clear but the wee lass can't smell anything. Anyone ever heard of something like this? They're taking her to a specialist in northern Greece next week who apparently has a machine to test your sense of smell. Seems there's just one thing after another. And this is the wee one who was born with no fingers on her right hand. Like that isn't enough for them to deal with!! I was wondering if it could be something psychological but would never go so far as to suggest that. Anyway, if any of you have ever heard of something similar, I'd love your input. Thanks in advance.

      .....
      Yep. Olefactory nerve damage. It may even be that her olefactory nerve and hand were developing around the same time in utero although I have very little knowledge of child development in utero so can't say. It can also be allergies, sinus problems, problems with nasal anatomy. Highly specialised area as it's not usually reported. Poor kid.

      Decorating! Squeal! I'm going white white white with strategically placed blue and white. I want simple, fresh, clean and light. Pinterest!! I'm mad about it.
      No sugar, those paint colours are gorgeous. I love Oxford Blue.
