Often I wake up to a coffee brewing odor. I have it set up but my coffee maker doesn't have a timer on it. Maybe it is my head teasing me saying get up and get that coffee going.

Although this morning the whole house reeked of skunk since a stupid stunk has been hanging around the house lately. I was told it is mating season right now and that the skunk maybe looking around for the stray cats that hang around my home. Never thought about those two animals ever mating??Yuck! Pepi le pu!

The exact same thing happened to me a couple of years ago. I smelled cigarette smoke continuously for about four days. I had begun using a CPAP machine for the first time and I suspect that my olfactory hallucination was a psychological reaction to the machine. I hated it! I never used the CPAP again and have not had phantom smells since.

We can sometimes smell cigarette smoke in the house or car, we know our dear departed friend Gail is with us when this happens, she used to go thro' at least 40 a day. I can sometimes smell celery when no one else can, and shortly after, I get a migraine attack. Aren't us humans weird ?

I randomly smell burnt toast. I've experienced this for years. It turns out that it is a sign of a silent migrain. I saw a neurologist and he said that random smells are a very common sign of a silent migrain and that they occur more often in women approaching menopause.

It's strange, but I'd rather have the smell than a full out painful migrain!

A few times lately I have been smelling cherry cigars and I hate that smell. It doesn't last long but it's weird.

I recently went to the Doctor for this same reason. I have migraines and it turns out this is an 'aura' in my case. It drives me crazy! It usually lasts for a few days before I get a major migraine.

i regularly smell cigarette smoke in my home. we built our home ourselves, 12 years ago, from the ground up, and it has NEVER been smoked in, as i'm deathly allergic to cigarette smoke. however, my sinuses are ALWAYS draining, because i have so many allergies, so i've always assumed it's related to my sinus issues. sometimes, it's so strong, i have to go outside.

This has been happening to me for the last few months, my husband thinks I am crazy. I did wonder if it might have something to do with medical issues.
I will have to mention it to my neurologist at my next check up.

Prepare your child for the path, not the path for your child.
Stop telling your God how big the storm is. Instead, tell the storm how big your God is.
It's time to put on your big girl panties and deal with it!
Don't be so open-minded that your brains fall out.
There's no pill that cures stupid.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
