I don't understand why i'm so sensitive to smell. I start gagging every time I smell something funny. Is this normal?

In brief: Always?

Have you always been this way or is this something new? Some people are very sensitive this way.
If it were new i'd be more inclined to search for a cause.

In brief: Hypersensitive smell

Some people are generally "hypersensitive" to intense scents and odors.
If this is a recent development, you should see your physician or an otolaryngologist (ear, nose and throat specialist) for evaluation.
