      Yes maam it truly do suck sometimes! The hard times are at work at lunch time, smelling everyone's lunches & wanting them soo bad. Even if they stink. TV commercials. I used to be able to ignore them, not anymore. Going shopping - Stay away from the food court. But the odor is in the air from all of the fast food joints. It's just everywhere you go. Hard to get away from. I have developed an affection for perfume. I wear it alot, probably too much. But I have to do something!

      I do somewhat understand that. I've been on restrictive diets much of my life---rice and water for weeks at a time-small amounts-or I ended up in the ER.

      I didn't have to work, so smelling other peoples food wasn't a problem. I did have 2 growing children that needed more than a peanut butter sandwich or some Campbells soup with crackers.
