About

Hi everyone, my name is Chessie Horwood and I have congenital anosmia. I was diagnosed at 16, (so quite late!) and had a pretty tough time getting my condition recognised.

I came across Fifth Sense when trying to find out what anosmia was, as at the time it was incredibly overwhelming but I ended up finding a whole community!

My aim is to help young people with any type of smell or taste disorder, from trying to get a diagnosis to offering support and guidance however they are affected.

I would also like to help people who support a loved one, friend or colleague who have a smell/taste disorder as they often feel helpless and there is so much they can do!
