Entry for Making Sense - Smell

Except for putting it together, I can't claim any original content here. It's a collection of quotes from people with their take on what diabetes 'smells' like. Some quotes came from people right here on tudiabetes.

Great! Thank you so much, I always think and worry about this, sometimes I think I am crazy trying to recognize smells on my husband... I look forward to be able to afford a service dog that can help us on that front.
