I have been eating barely anything in a day while avoiding touching foods with my fingers and today I have gotten myself over it:) I just thought I would let you guys know...  It feels so good to eat my butt off again!!!

Really glad you are feeling better!

The relief that comes when you have got over a scare is one of the few positive things that come from HA. The important thing to do now is to try and take steps to make sure you deal with the root cause of the HA.

Gotta bump this. Sorry  :P
I've gotten somewhat better outside of my prion-phobia, but it hasn't ever gone away  :( however, I thought of how prions "stick" to steel. The knives are still there and I was wondering if the prions stick to the knife so hard that touching the knife wouldn't be a problem. Am I correct in this hypothesis?
Also, are there any experts about prions on the internet I could contact to ask questions, they could probably give me some more helpful information.

Hey I'm back with a very important update. So I've decided to put on a pair of gloves and actually look in the box again. In there was a small folded paper that said it was actually from Farmingdale, LI New York. So there's practically no chance it originated In England during its mad cow outbreak! Now I can finally toss this phobia away, for good!!!  :party0006:
