It's been a while since of been back on the forum, last time I was here I got a great amount of reassurance from the community. Every time I come here I seem to find answer and reassurance for my fears. But now I have a new fear, rabies.
Today I was walking around my house, when I heard a loud chirping noise, low and behold I found a 4-5 week old baby squirrel outside my house on my patio. The poor thing looked like it was going to die. Not thinking in the moment I decided to poke it gently with a piece of grass, after not moving nor any signs of breathing I turned the bald of grass around to the tougher end and poked it. Low and behold it moved and seemingly came back to life. Now back to the issue, the end that happened to touch the squirrel also touched my hand where I just happened to have a very small cut or knick. After realizing what I did I ran back inside and washed my hands of thoroughly. Right now I fear that I have been exposed to rabies somehow, I'm a moments notice away from leaving to go to the E.R.
Am I being crazy? Should I go to the E.R? Can someone help ease my worries.
Ps. Sorry about any misspellings I'm to anxious to tell..
