Hey, im really anxious to get some feedback if there exist any. I believe I could be a great resource to find out what synaethesia is and can be.  I never knew anything was different between me and what was "normal" until my tonsels and adenoids were taken out! All of a sudden i was in the twilight zone as i put it then. First all color in music turned to a dirty sounding black, then to a clear light peaceful blue...earily relating to mood. During the next three years it had come back, and lavender aromatherapy was a big part in it going away...ITs been gone for a few years. Since it was gone, ive been experimenting with suppliments and aromatherapy, to find that they alter the way I experience mood with the addition of color. Again, i thought it was normal...until it whent away. Now things that alter my mood, just alter my mood, no huge difference in the perception of color influecing its effect on me. Well, i have theories for myself on serotonin, and ive had chelation for mercury and hypothyroidism and a detatched retina...so i believe ive had some experience, lots of questions, but lots of theories for answers as well. I hope to hear some feedback! thanks.
