  1. I didn't knew that there are so many symptoms of anxiety. Thanks a lot @Gilly for sharing this post.
  2. The thermometer is accurate and if she has been tested positive for covid 19 and if she has fever give her Acetaminophen. Give her warm beverages like tea and also a teaspoon of honey in it.

  4. This happens when red blood cells can't carry enough oxygen but you told your oxygen level is normal. So I don't think that you should worry about it
  5. Hello @Dewdrops it looks like Harm OCD as you are getting thoughts of hurting your loved ones. I know you won't hurt anyone but this thoughts will make you feel like you will do. You should first get diagnosed and check if it is OCD or not and if it is OCD than you should start doing ERP therapy and also take medicines.

  6. It is the side effect of your antibiotic. You can eat ginger it is a popular natural remedy commonly used to treat nausea.
  7. Don't get anxious nothing will happen to you. The window was disinfected and you were 6 ft away so I don't think there are chances of getting covid-19. So don't think about and take a deep breath and do some meditation and keep yourself busy.
  8. There are lots of people who count in OCD. Some count, numbers, alphabets in word, letters, tiles, steps walked etc. It common in people who have counting OCD and some people count because they think it will help to save their loved ones. You can read this articles on counting OCD to get a better understanding of it. https://www.treatmyocd.com/blog/counting-numbers-ocd/ https://evolvetreatment.com/blog/my-teen-is-counting-does-she-have-obsessive-compulsive-disorder/ https://peaceofmind.com/education/types-of-ocd/counting-checking/
  9. I don't crave for hug but I crave for food when I am stressed and it helps me to relief my stress.
  10. I know how it feels @AnneBoleyn I also have allergy and I get cold after every 2 days. Don't know if my meds are not working or it is something else and I too get afraid covid
  11. I would like to add some resources that will help users. Please add your resources also. https://iocdf.org/blog/ https://www.treatmyocd.com/learn/blog/ https://www.healingwell.com https://healthunlocked.com
  12. It looks like thanatophobia also known as death anxiety in this people fear of own death or the process of dying. What is your age usually death anxiety peaks in 20s and it fades away as you get older. You should talk to your therapist that will help you a lot, you can also try meditation and breathing techniques that will help you with anxiety and over time these techniques may help you reduce your fears.
  13. I am not going through this because I am staying with my family. You should not be afraid of your family members I know it is your anxiety that is making you feel afraid. You should explain your family members what health anxiety is and what you are dealing from. Try to stay connected with them when you are not visiting them at last your family members will only support you.
  14. You are not showing any symptoms and you are wearing a mask. So I don't think so you will be tested positive.
  15. Yes allergies make me feel very sick I don't feel like doing any work that day and only sleeping and taking rest. I sneeze a lot and there is lots of itching in my eyes and it becomes watery whenever my allergy is triggered and I am able to see properly because of itching in eyes.
