After a really nice day, hubby and I came home from the store, and son had once again burned something in the kitchen.  This time it smelled particularly foul, like burnt rotting garbage or rotten meat...and my stomach immediately reacted.

And the twerp wouldn't get out of the kitchen. I just wanted to roll up into a ball.

So I forgot my lovely dinner of shrimp and salmon and rice.  I was suddenly, nastily sick.  It  takes me sometimes three days to get over this...like my digestive tract gets burned by whatever gets pumped through my system.  I took all my meds, valium and prevacid and an anticholegic and something for pain, crammed down a dry hamburger hoping it would calm down the reaction and fell asleep for nearly two hours...but my wonderful evening plans with hubby were shot.  Stupid nose.  Stupid tummy.

Shakes fist at the kami of digestion and evil rotten food smells...still a bit nauseated, and of course can't find the antinausea med.

I still feel bleh.  But maybe a little bit less.

Def a case of the best laid plans of mice and men....

I suggest stealing the knobs to the stove when you leave, rendering it useless. ;)

Or install a cover with a keypad lock over the burners, and take the microwave with you.

Hope you feel better soon!

Why do half the people I know on the web have these weird maladies? Am I correct in understanding you that the smell of lousy cooking can lay you up for days?

Now, my husband used to have to be banned from even buying certain things and eating them on the sly; smoked oysters, for instance, or (may God forgive him) garlic-drenched stuffed quahogs. But that was because the resulting odor was of epic proportions. Nauseation from smell is for pregnancy and other severe hormonal disturbances.

I think it was the bad smell tied to dinner-time..the same symptoms can happen if I wait to long to eat, too...no smells necessary.

But the smells of rotten stuff and some perfumes can always nauseate me. But although I was nauseated, that wasn't the big thing...it feels more like gastritis.

I also had papillary stenosis with my bile duct; doc pulled four stones out of my bile duct (five years after I had my gall bladder pulled) and performed a sphinterotomy, but I still get problems with it. They never told me officially I have SOD, but I still get pain and spasms.

And I have IBS, too.

This is my weirdness. I guess everybody has to have something.

My sister just got her bile duct removed. Problem ended. She did loose weight while she was sick, though. Turns out she's lantern-jawed which I find very funny.

I did discover working out regularly kills most of the digestive problems most of the time...This was the first bad attack I've had in awhile, and I'm pulling out of it faster than usual. I think I prefer that to any more surgeries, at least for the moment. And the condition keeps me on a fairly low fat diet, which isn't a bad thing.

Except for this attack, I've actually been feeling a lot better. Just wish son would learn to cook on something less than full blast....

She didn't work out more, she just couldn't eat. That bile duct and her gallbladder had to go. So, she was pretty much surviving off of plain pita chips and plain boiled chicken breast and water.

When my blocked bile duct was at its worst, I was living on plain yogurt and sauerkraut...had to wait for the ERPC machine to get fixed and the line to have the procedure to get to me. Was not fun. Had two attacks of pancreatitis before it was over.

But that was then, this is now. Better now, usually. Get scoped every now and then by some method or the other to make sure all is well.

Yuck...Hope you are feeling better! *HUGS*

I think the twerp should be banned from the kitchen for a while...or else only be allowed to use the microwave!
