My Body odour

By Dinithi, Trimethylaminuria, Sri Lanka, August 2, 2019

I  am suffering from body odour issues since 2014. I was 12 back then. I somehow managed my life till 2017 I think been a child helped me.I was 16 in 2018 that's the year I found about the condition called TMAU through my own internet researches. I feel depressed. I don't know why but I always think about what's going to happen to me?. I get tons of reactions daily . When I'm in near a window at my house I can hear my next door neighbor sniff etc. First I didn't even understand this happened because of my smell.But after some time I understood it. Also people at my school always reacts. Whenever I'm at a school meeting my smell can fill the school auditorium.Even people on the stage reacts to my smell. Sometimes my friends make some mean comments about me I just reacts to them from a laugh or pretend like not hearing them.My life is living hell. I am a top student at my school no actually I was a one. My grades are lowering day by day. The reason is this . Also sometimes I feel like I'm going crazy.
