About

My name is Sharika Bivins and I have acquired anosmia. I write my blog My Anosmatic Life and am based Virginia, USA. I lost my sense of smell over 13 years ago while in college as a result of Chronic Rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps.

I have experienced many challenges in accessing treatments and in the lack of information available for patients. This has led me on a mission to raise more awareness about this invisible disability, share my story and experiences and to work with others as a Fifth Sense Ambassador to ensure the sense of smell is given the same credibility as the other senses.
