Living With Long COVID-19

“Loss or distortion of taste and smell causes one to lose a very important and emotional way of experiencing the world and affects our quality of life. These two senses play a huge role in our lives, this becomes apparent only when one experiences this loss or distortion.” – Pam Flynn

“I am so far into loss of smell, that when I do smell something, it’s not accurate. Like freshly mowed grass. It smells horrible. I’m a landscaper, so it’s inescapable.”
- Jennifer Jimerson
