No Angelfire, you're not a freak.
Many of us on the unit I work acknowledge there is a smell to death. I won't say that I can smell it all the time, or that I would bet money on it, but certainly there is a pervasive odor. When I worked in Hospice, the RN's there would also comment on the smell of death.
Perhaps your senses are just more fine tuned.
Follow your heart and your head. If it's what you really want to do, pursue it. If the PH agencies in your area require you to get some hospital experience first, than do so, but don't lose sight of your goal to work in Public Health. Good luck.
