could use some friendly reassurance today
« on: December 22, 2013, 12:24:04 PM »
hi
i'm trying to enjoy my rainy holiday sunday, but i have anxiety pretty bad today.
i'm staying busy and am going to try to do fun things despite this anxiety today, so i know that will help.
in the meantime, i know that hearing kind words from you will also help.

today, i'm anxious because of these things:

1)my SIL is staying at a hotel with her dogs. i'm petrified of bed bugs. i'm scared that she will somehow have bed bugs in her hotel room and bring them to my house while she is here. maybe they will hitch a ride on her dogs

2)my nephew has the flu. we are going to see them in 6 days. trying not to worry to much about this TODAY, but am dreading seeing them this weekend.

3)my SIL's partner woke up this morning with a "cold". i am scared that maybe it is the flu and we were around her last night and will be around her for the next few days(they are in town visiting, although staying at a hotel, they will be at my house mostly)

so, that's that.
help me rationalize things ok?
damn.

Hi Reece,
     Bed bugs are actually pretty rare, so I would not worry about them. As far as the colds and flu go, as
long as you practice good hygiene and get plenty of rest, you should be OK. I have read that higher levels
of vitamin D-3, like 4-5,000 i.u. per day, should help your immune system.

thanks marc,
actually bed bugs in hotels are very common now, unfortunately.

i know that i have to take my chances and could get the flu from a doorknob anywhere, but KNOWINGLY being around someone who may be contagious is worrisome to me. but, i won't have a choice. i will practice good hygiene, but getting a 12 year old to be cautious is much harder.

my brother says they are feeling much better today. but i still think maybe the others will get it, and they will be contagious too
ugh
