Olfactory Dysfunction: A sensory disorder symptoms involving sensitivity to smells and difficulty processing smell sensory input.
Hypersensitivity To Smells (Over-Responsive):
Strongly dislikes smells that are usually undetectable by others
tells other people (or talks about) how bad or funny they smell
refuses to eat certain foods because of their smell
bothered by typical household or cooking smells
may refuse to go to someone’s house because of the way it smells
may not want certain people to be close because of the smells
decides whether he/she likes someone or some place by the way it smells
Hyposensitivity To Smells (Under-Responsive):
has difficulty discriminating unpleasant odors
may drink or eat things that are poisonous because they do not notice the noxious smell
unable to identify smells from scratch ‘n sniffstickers
does not notice odors that others usually complain about
fails to notice or ignores unpleasant odors
C. Sensory Seeking olfactory stimuli
• Excessively uses the sense of smelling when introduced to objects, people or places
• Uses smell to interact with objects
• Seeks strong odors
Treatment involves developing a sensory diet and environmental modifications.
Bathroom odours cannot be eliminated but they can be prevented from spreading throughout the entire house. The fan must be on, the door must be closed and a very effective odour eliminator must be used (we use Lysol, cinnamon scented oils and Febreze).
This is my first experience with an online game and I am loving it! The ONLY attraction for me was the ability to influence how much was sent to the charitable organizations that are helping the children.
My added bonus is I am able to use some very basic time management skills, something that has eluded me for decades LOL
So far I am still have fun “giving” while I play:) I’m a little less obsessed and learning how to manage my crops, like which ones to plant (influenced by how much time I want to be spending in front of my computer), which houses give me the most JOY points which in turn allow me to give to the following:
22 times to Haiti Hot Meal program which provides hot meals for the children,
22 times to the Haiti Flamand School program (which is helping buildON build schools,
10 times to the Haiti Library Books which helps Save the Children provide textbooks,
13 times to the U.S. Homeless Children CARE which helps children’s health fund provide medical care to homeless children,
5 times to the U.S Literacy Program which helps Save the Children provide young readers tools they need to succeed.
I have also been able to send clean drinking water (I cannot seem to remember how many times nor can I find where that info is stored in my account). Oh well, no matter, the important thing is clean water is being sent:)
Now I am waiting for the Haiti Medicines to open up for me so I can contribute to that one.
