    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Loss of sense of smell and taste

Is there anything I can do as I worry that I will be unable to smell a fire, or any other dangerous scent. This really came to the front when I poured some drain cleaner down the drain and a friend came over and asked why there was such a strong smell of sulfuric acid in the house.
