Olfactory

For the past three weeks I haven't been able to enter into a grocery store without excessive gagging - even the mere thought of going will illicit these responses. Seeking any ideas that would help to regulate my fight/flight response. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Gagging at grocery store
by: Anonymous

Some stores really smell bad. Putting a scarf or bandana around your neck with
A scent you like and can kind of tuck your nose under from time to time can help. If that does not help you may have to find a different store. Some stores use cleaners that smell bad. If you can find out what nights they clean you can avoid that as well. Tell the manager the store has offensive smells.
Sometimes a stick of strong gum or sugar free mints can help,
Or Vicks under the nose can help. Never give up and keep looking up.
