Thoughts & opinions appreciated, please :-)

Postby LJNLindsay » Sat Nov 30, 2013 8:52 pm

As the heading sugests, I would really appreciate some of your thoughts/opinions on this:

Five weeks ago I began a 'Business & Administration' course; one a week, for 3.5 hours. There's only 7 of us altogether, including the tutor.

Of course, EVERY week I have felt the paranoia but, on the whole, no one has ever said anything, nor have I detected any looks, or comments, etc.

Well, now I have the results, & a confirmation, I am wondering whether to continue with the course. Now I have proof, I am tempted to have a private word with my tutor to a) ask if she has every noticed anything, or b) whether any of the other students have complained.

My folks tell me that this is the worse thing I could possibly so because, in their view, any smell that occurs: I shall automatically be blamed.

Of course, I see their point but, in all honesty, I'd rather make my tutor aware. I just dread the idea of being sat in class oblivious to the fact that I'm (literally) getting up peoples' noses & that they are just being polite & putting up with me :-(

All in all, I just don't know how to deal with this...

Thanks in advance!

Hi Linds

I think your idea to have a word with your tutor is an excellent idea.

It wouldn't surprise me if they have no idea what you are talking about, because I think most of us tend to smell only a minority of the time, and you may not have smelt in class at all. I think it's important to get an idea of how often you smell because it might help you/us to understand what is happening. Also it is my own belief that perhaps 20% of the population cannot detect it well (from situations I have been in). I am guessing they are 'carriers' or close to the border cases themselves.

Of the about 20 I have seen with 'TMAU' on TV, only one was reported to smell on camera. I think most of us are 'transient' cases even if 'type1' .

Also I think the tutor will be very considerate.

This is just my opinion

Hi PoetFire,

Yes, I too believe that my 'symptoms' are transient &, even then, mild. It's just the constant paranoia that makes you constantly worry & make your own interpretations about how others react around you.

I still can't-quite believe that I have it. After all in the 20 years that I suspect I've had it, I've only had relatively few comments/reactions.

I just cannot get my head around it, really.

Not sure what, if any treatment, will be offered. Living in Cornwall, there's not much in the way of specialist help, sadly.

It's all a bit of a mine field really, isn't it?

I'm just thankful that I have such wonderfully supportive parents whom I know love me no matter what.

Also, regardless of how I 'may' be smelling, my two dogs' still love me. Bless 'em.

BTW - being the 1st of a new month, from today I intend to keep a log of everything I eat & drink. Then whether 'I' detect any smells, plus any reactions I may get. That way some pattern may emerge!

Obviously I'm not following any specific diet as I'm reluctant to give the low-choline diet a try without the help and advice from a nutritionist.

Talking of 'diet' years ago I lost a lot of weight on the Cambridge Diet (total meal replacement - just shakes & soups). Wouldn't it be easier if some expert could come up with a similar plan? Liquid diet, low choline, but with all the nutrients needed to survive?

I am diagnosed with tmau ( diagnosis after first child) I would like another.... dr lachmann wont blood test my daughter as she is symptomless currently . Mine didnt start till early twenties but have heard of other members of the forum whose children developed it later . Am holdin off havin another as I feel its like a game of russian roulette, has anyone had their child blood tested privately as I feel this is my only option - would hate to bring a child up knowin they could have it eventually - might end up doin it anyway .
