    A new obsession

    @Emigara I am feeling better from when I posted above. It’s crazy how in that moment I was in panic and re reading it now I see how my mind got the best of me. I still unfortunately obsess over things mostly exposures but I’m doing good for now. Hang in there!!

    Exposure anxiety

    I have had some fears that come up at times about other things like rabies, or things from mice but they don’t last long at all. Maybe a few hours or a day I’ll stress over it. The fear i have now is robbing my life bc i can’t live in the moment bc I’m so worried of what can happen in the future bc of these exposures. It’s a horrible anxiety bc there is no test to say all is good. And I’ve googled enough to know way too much . Not sure what to do.

    Exposure anxiety

    I have health anxiety over exposures of chemicals and radiation and medicine ( that can cause “c”) and am terrified of something my child was exposed to. I feel so sad and scared. I keep thinking it’s all my fault he was exposed. And I’ve done a huge no no and googled every study on the topic and now i wonder how i can get over this. He’s not even two yet and I’m worried Mostly because of his age. The other thing is i went through this 9 months ago w him. I think about this all day at times. I still go out and make plans like normal but every down time i have I’m stuck in my thoughts and fears. Please help! And has anyone had fears of past exposures or worries for their little ones ?

    Rabies fear. Positive strep test.

    You have a positive strep test that is why you have a sore throat. Try not to let your mind trick you . Hope you feel better soon!

    Ugh I'm freaking out

    Im sure you are not in any danger from this. The amoeba comes mostly from lake water in very hot temperatures. It’s super rare. I had a couple irrational fears about this as well. Don’t worry.

    4 year old sleeping too much?

    It could be a growth spurt and or the fact that she has a cold. My kids def sleep more when they have colds. Anxiety always makes us think the worst. Hang in there.. i know how it feels to worry about our little ones.

    Anxiety is back

    @Iugrad91 thank you for assuring me. I’m aware my reaction to being exposed to things becomes a little much but I’ve become so fearful of things when it comes to my children. I just want to protect them so when i find out they were around something toxic even a one time exposure seems like something can be harmful to their little bodies and has me very worried.

    Anxiety is back

    I have anxiety mostly over exposures to things that may cause “c” and for some reason i keep finding myself or my family being exposed to something. Its a very hard anxiety to get through for me bc there is no end. No doctor visit can say we will be ok from the things we came in contact with ( this time a chemical from house work) I’m mostly worried for my kids they are young . BUT i was just moving on from the last thing and Im feeling really down that this is happening again. And we actually were around a chemical the workers used so i feel like it’s real. I do go to therapy but it’s been a few weeks bc i was doing good. I have an app this week though. I probably need meds for times like this but I’m so afraid to take them. Thanks for your replies . Hopefully i will have a better day today . Im trying to face my fears right now I’m finally sitting in my living room where some house work was done bc for three days I’ve been avoiding areas in my home.

    Anxiety is back

    Ive been having bad anxiety for days now and I’m so frustrated. I wasted almost the whole day today googling and stuck in my thoughts. Just when i was doing better with my old fear I’m on to something new . Why can’t my anxiety just leave me alone and let me enjoy myself? I’m missing out bc I’m worrying so much and obsessing . Does anyone else that has anxiety that just jumps from one thing to the next?

    Can you get rabies for animal feces?

    @Gracie4ever i highly doubt that happened. This is just your anxiety . Try not to google about it and do something you enjoy to get your mind off of it .

    Can you get rabies for animal feces?

    I don’t think you can get rabies from animal feces so even if you have cuts it should not matter. Your anxiety is trying to make you worry with all of the what if’s. I’m sure you will be ok! Don’t worry

    Worried about Rabies

    It sounds like ocd to me and I’m thinking you are in the clear from rabies. I get caught up in irrational thinking as well and can’t stop the what If thoughts. I’m going through it right now too. You didn’t see anything and even if you came across a dead animal the rabies virus doesn’t live long when outside the body. This fear will pass.. it’s just your thoughts.
  14. My health anxiety isn’t based so much on symptoms but more on exposures . Now i have a new obsession and i don’t know how to stop obsessing and worrying. We had painters come and they patched up some holes that were from wall art and After i came home and had my kids in the area the work was done in i noticed white stuff on the floor. I got the name of the product and found out an ingredient is known to cause lung “ c” if inhaled. The workers said they did the patch work using a wet rag instead of sanding which doesnt produce much dust but there was still trails of this harmful material on our floor. now I’m going crazy wondering what if my youngest got a hold of some and tasted it or if some particles landed in his pack n play ( bc there were holes patched above it) i am so upset over this and I’ll never know if he ate any or played over what was on the floor. I was in the kitchen watching him from a few feet away and saw him playing w a toy every time i looked but my mind is going crazy worried sick for him. I also had him eat in his high chair and am worried what if some of the particles landed on that. Not sure how to stop worrying over this.just when i am slowly getting over the last exposure fear a new worse one comes in. I just can’t take not knowing if my baby could of ingested some of this. I’m so upset and can’t get the what if’s out of my mind.

    N. Fowleri / Flu fear.

    N Fowlei is very very rare. It happens most of the time from lake water in the summer months . Try not to google about it , it will only make your fear over this worse. Hope your little one feels better fast.
