Any other Autistics that taste smells or have other things like that? (I have heard of hearing colors in other's voices, or smelling sounds.) Does anyone know a simple explanation for why that is? (I have heard it is a miswiring in the brain but have also heard, for example with the tasting smells, that you are literally tasting the air from the source of the smell.) Does anyone know how to combat this? (I don't want to taste an air freshener walking into a room, or vinegar walking into a room that has just been cleaned.... I can also taste my dog's smell when she is sitting near me. I also don't want to taste the smell of something like when I am picking up my dog's poop, because that is disgusting and tastes super bad for a while afterwards.)
