Some people seem to have it all. They are beautiful, smart and articulate. This is exactly how Camilla is, but this doesn’t mean that her life is a piece of cake and that she doesn’t have any struggles of her own. The former model turned school teacher noticed that everyone was running away from her, but she couldn’t figure out why and this was driving her mad. The worst thing about this is that something which she couldn’t control was driving everyone away…

19. BAD ODOR
The accomplished woman realized that she has a bad odor. Otherwise, why would no one want to be next to her? The interesting part is that she couldn’t smell the bad odor and this is when she mustered up the courage to ask a friend about her smell. You will be shocked by what the friend had to say.
18. ROTTEN FISH
Camilla’s friend told her that she smells like rotten fish and that the stench keeps getting worse every day. Camilla couldn’t believe what she was hearing and this moved her to tears. Not just that, but it also made sense why no one wanted to sit next to her during lunch hours.

Fortunately, she found help in the most unexpected place. Here’s what happened years after she started looking for answers about her condition!
15. RUINING HER LIFE
The woman didn’t know what to do. She couldn’t get close to anyone because of a smell that she couldn’t notice. That’s probably because it got gradually stronger over the years and her nose got used to it.
14. FIRST JOB
When thinking about her bad odor Camilla remembered that during first job she was always sent in the paint room where she was all alone. Her boss would always talk to her from a distance. This is when she realized that she has a serious problem.

12. GOGGLING FOR ANSWERS

11. MEETING SANDY
Camilla found out that she suffered from a genetic disease called Trimethylaminuria and that a woman named Sandy has started a foundation called TMAU in hopes of finding a cure for Trimethylaminuria.
10. NOT ALONE
Camilla was glad that she finally knew what’s wrong with her and that the bad odor wasn’t her fault. Camilla was also happy to know that she wasn’t the only one who suffered from Trimethylaminuria. What happened next surprised everyone…
