He started by vomiting this morning. He has diareah a severe headache and mentioned upper back pain. He started crying and yelling loudly 30 minutes ago because his head hurt so bad. Earlier he had chills. He also has light sensitivity and is sweating I think. I am in Thailand where the food gets us sick. he has Not eaten since yesterday except for a yogurt.drinking too much water made him throw up he said. I just gave him one Ibeprophen tablet. I don't normally take or give medicine so It was scary to give. What should I do? What do you think this is? He is keeping himself covered in a blanket and the air is off. It's rather warm in the room.
During the latter Spring and entire Summer, I find myself at my most peaceful. Viruses that spread seem to frequent the colder seasons and the holidays/events, which in turn tends to exacerbate the dispersal of those viruses. It's not the trivial colds that frighten me, but the ones that use my emetophobia to bring me to my knees. If someone gets sick, even if it is in an entirely different state on the opposite coast I find myself in a state of panic just by the thought. Lately I have entered a state of introspection that leads me to believe that due to this phobia, among other things, I am a burden to the close few around me. I pushed off seeing my girlfriend of several years by 2 weeks because her household has fell victim to what would clearly immobilize me in both senses. It has planted the thought in my head that she deserves better than someone like me, who would quarantine her for being ill out of pure fear and void of logic. I suppose the purpose of me posting this is to see if others have had similar feelings or situations, or could even offer advice to cope with this madness. It is slowly eating away at me and making life incredibly difficult.
Just yesterday I got a cold, or maybe allergies. Basically I have a runny/stuffy nose and yesterday before I went to sleep I had a soar throat. I've been having a lot of anxiety because in some areas near where I live there's been a sickness going around. It starts off as the flu and then it turns into a respiratory infection, no one has died from it, but they've been hospitalized for it. This has been stressing me out because with my anxiety I have shortness of breath and I keep thinking that I'm going to end up getting a respiratory infection and going to have to go to the hospital on an oxygen tank. Does anyone else ever fee like this? Also is there anyway I could ease some of this anxiety? Because just yesterday I had a panic attack during school and I hate when that happens because It's so hard not to freak out and look like a psycho.
