Okay so I cut my hand below my thumb yesterday night and it like cut open my skin, in a sort of v shape. Besides the initial 'oh crap did that just happen' I did not freak out at all so that was pretty surprising. I went to urgent care but it was closed so unfortunately I had to go to the ER. Was there for almost 5 hours. I had to get six stitches and they recommended me to get a tetanus shot which I did. Anyways my anxiety was pretty under control the whole time . there was times in the waiting room where I was thinking with the what if's and my anxiety would rise but I managed to calm myself down. I had this fear that didn't make sense at all, I feared that I developed that fainting response that some people have when they see blood, very shocking (sarcasm) surprise I don't have it. I was also more scared of having some kind of reaction to the vaccine and was scared that I wasn't supposed to get it because I don't remember the last time I've had a vaccine. I don't think its been more than 10 years. I think the last time was 3 or 4 years ago. I just woke up and my hand hurts, not horribly but its just a little uncomfortable. Is this normal? I'm also scared that it'll get infected or that I'll get that tetanus thing. My arm is sore from the vaccine too. I'm more anxious now than yesterday when it was actually happening , weird, right?
