    Please help me- I need clarity

    I can only speak for me but I think that sometimes I have ha and ocd episodes when I’m actually worried about something else entirely. You mentioned money in your last post. That may be leading to this reaction. Anyhow here’s my take on the raccoon poop specifically. It’s been 2 years...2 whole years since you found it and got rid of it. Since then it has rained. The sun has been out. Maybe it’s snowed where you live. There have been windy days, etc. beyond your measures of sanitizing the area, time and weather have surely obliterated anything that ***could*** have remained. Listen, I get it. I have the same tendencies. But I have to think logically that after 2 years poop would have biodegraded if it had even managed to survive your sanitation procedures. Hang in there and keep us posted.

    Feel puffy

    Yes...especially right before my cycle and/or when it's super hot out.
  3. It’s so scary for us with HA if something is not the usual...but I agree with your got on antibiotics, had the’ll be all fixed up in no time. Best thing you can do is rest now.

    Tingling feeling in one hand! Nooo

    He-, I get those buzzing feelings as well.
  5. Well it sounds like you did the right thing @Holls especially if it is red and warm. The last thing you want is some kind of infection and...good news...tetanus shots are good for 10 years (ish). So anyway, I hope you feel better. Please let us know how you're doing.
  6. @Holls you are doing great and thank you for all you do for everyone on here. Meanwhile, I have had pets (dogs) all my life and have lost count of the number of scratches I've gotten...even scratches that have bled. Never have any of the dogs scratch me to attack me. Normally, they've been playing or they've freaked out (like your cat did). Anyway, I have never in my 50 years worried about tetanus...rabies, yes...tetatnus no. Makes no sense because any dog I have had has been immunized and fine and whatever. But tetanus, I just, just never occurred to me. Anyhow, hug your cat and your hubby. xoxo

    Trying not to worry...petechiae

    Best thing for minor rash and skin trauma is a powder called (don't judge) anti-monkey butt. Seriously, look it up. It's very hot where I live. Heat rashes abound...anti-monkey butt saves the day...and not just in the butt area...anywhere there is heat and chaffing.

    I'm kind of freaking out

    Bless your heart Anne. I am so sorry for what you're going through. Fortunately the stats are in your favor....most follow up mammos are just that and end there with nothing else to come of it. I thinks its normal to be anxious about the follow ups and anxious about your mom. The hardest part for you is likely keeping it from your mom so that she can concentrate on getting better. That shows your character, your love for her and just how strong you are. Hang in there and please do keep us posted.

    Bats are pretty big @Totallyphobic, I'd think you'd actually see it. Think back to your issue 20 years ago...I imagine there was no doubt it was a bat.

    Year-round allergy sufferers?

    My sister uses Flonase and she swears by it.

    Scratchy/sore throat moves to one side?

    That just happened to me. Yes I worried about it...but then I forgot about it and now its gone.

    Need help

    Great news! Hang in there and Bob is so right. I sometimes wonder if the HA is a way to deal with ...or avoid dealing with...other life stressors. I don't know. Anyhow, it's just a pimple....and exhale.

    The Rabies fear... I know it sooo sooo sooo well. But even I, the self-proclaimed Queen of the Rabies Fear would not think twice on this one. I think you're good, quite good in fact. Relax.

    Just remember the fact that it looks and feels better is really good. Hang in there and keep us posted.
