Does hearing the word "pen" make you taste chocolate. If you eat a croissant, do you hear a piano playing?
This article on synesthesia describes a condition where people have a tangling of sensory recognition.
'Tasting colors' and 'hearing taste' are very extreme, rare examples.
I do NOT have synesthesia.
However, I do identify with strange sensory responses. If I hear the word chocolate, I 'see' it and imagine the smell, texture, taste. It has, at times, been a strong response.
Hearing 'sugar' does not trigger any response at all. However, if I EAT sugar I swing from euphoria on the first bite to desolation on the last.
It is better that I do not eat sugar.
I wonder if I have any other unusual sensory responses.
I am doing well this month. Doing the work, getting results. Taking it one day at a time.
Hope you are well.
