    Is anyone else having this problem?

    My sense of smell, which is usually very sensitive, is now even more sensitive. I can smell it if my wife's gone out and had food outside the house. If our bird's cage is even the slightest bit dirty, I can smell that too. Even a recently cleaned bathroom smells overwhelming, because the cleaners smell so strong.

    This evening, I was literally driven out of the house because of all the different smells were driving me crazy.

    Is this happening to anyone else, or am I just losing my mind?

    And no, there is no possibility that I could be pregnant!

    Yep.. the smells are amazing!!

    And my nose is definately more active! lol

    You can ignore them though.. or just use them to remind yourself of what you CAN have in the end, in moderation.. just not know because you CHOOSE not too ((Hugs))

    Be strong!! ;) your brain is just trying to trick you that's all.

    It's not just the food smells that are making my crazy. Those, at least, are pleasant and I don't feel all that tempted. What's driving me the most crazy are the unpleasant smells. I can't clean the bathroom because the bathroom cleaner smells too intense. Even the laundry detergent (I use unscented) still smells overwhelming. Last night, I had to leave the house for a while, because I felt like my senses were being assaulted by all the every day smells!

    Oh I thought I was the only one who noticed this.
    I dont normally eat red meat but the smell of it is driving me nuts at the moment.
    The smell of the local chippy is sooooooooo tempting at the moment.
    I will stay strong
