Medicine X ePatient Scholar

Because anosmia, or not being able to smell—something I have dealt with for perhaps my entire life—is an invisible and seemingly harmless condition, and because of the fear of people manipulating my disability, I suppressed the frustration that came with knowing that I lack certain abilities and experiences that come with being able to smell.

Social media allowed me to realize that my condition is important and come to terms with its implications. During my journey to closure, I discovered that I am bravest and happiest when helping others. As a an ePatient, student, and future physician, I now have the strength, confidence, and the voice to engage the community on a larger scale and will continue to get involved as, above all, an ally to reduce stigma and to raise awareness of all invisible and visible conditions.
