    It never used to effect me but has for the last 6 months or so.
    My son eats meat which I do cook for him and the smell now makes me feel really queasy.
    Just open lots of doors and windows, put the extractor fan on and light some incense.

    The smell used to not bother me either, but now I can't cook it myself (unless it's just, like, a hotdog or something that I threw in the microwave really quick for my daughter). Last night I cooked her some fish sticks we had left over in the freezer from before I started the veg thing, and the smell almost made me not want to eat my own dinner. It was awful. I agree with treehugger, just open the windows, light some candles or spray some good stuff and get out of there for a while. Let it air out. You're not alone. :)

    Maybe you want to get some new roommates? For the first years of my vegetarian life, I had to leave with an entire family of daiy meat-eaters, and the house always reeked of flesh meat cooking. Finally, I got out! Now I am living with a vegan (my husband), and it's MUCH BETTER.

    I live with a family of meat eaters too :[ It's a bit saddening, and occasionally I get nauseous too; I stay in my own room in times like these but the smell sometimes wafts, so I spend time outside. Anyway, I agree, the smell always is worse when you're waking to it...Thank her for her concern but ask them to refrain if they can, or to shut your door, or to take a portable grill and do it outdoors.
