Thank you for responding because even though you aren't having the same problem at least you are letting me know that there was another person with the same problem and for that I am very appreciative.
It doesn't help that I feel hyper sensitive. A couple of examples are: I was on a medication that I had to inject and I could actually smell the medicine. When I told my doctor about that she said in all her years of practicing medicine I was maybe the fifth person to say that.
I can smell the lightbulbs after they have been on a short while, while nobody else can.
Also, a few years ago when we got our new furnace, that first winter all I could smell was the glue or solvent the installers used to install the furnace and the ductwork. That didn't bother me so much because I understood there would be an odor for that. But the following winter I could smell heat in the hallway. I guess it congregated right there because of the small enclosure. But nobody else could smell that. Of course I worried because I needed to make sure everything was okay. I calmed down when I smelled that same smell in a couple of stores.
Even though our kitchen cabinets are nearing 50 years old, when I open the door to the cabinet I can smell the wood at times. Again nobody else can.
I have plenty more examples but this is enough for now.
It just does my type of anxiety no good that I am super sensitive to smells and sounds. My ex used to say that I could hear a mouse pee on cotton. I think that might be a slight exaggeration though. LOL
