Uncontrollable Body Odor
I just wanted to see if anyone faces this problem. I have what I believe to be Trimethylamanuria, or TMAU (not yet medically proven). No matter how often I shower, I still smell strongly like urine and fecal matter. I shower three times every day, but I smell no better. I've tried to regulate my diet, to no avail. I've tried different detergents, soaps, etc., but nothing ever improves.
I'm tired of being harassed. I've been told that I know nothing about personal hygiene. I've been told that I smell like "***," "piss," or as one lovely person so poetically put it, "like a heap of dog****." People talk about me and make jokes about me while I'm within hearing distance. Hell, teachers and staff members at my school even make comments about it. This really is a tough thing for me, and I am amazed that I still am able to get out of bed every morning. Anyone else had experience with this?
