crazy health worry!

Posted , 2 users are following.

Well my health anxiety is driving me nuts! Currently I am obsessed that I have rabies! I have a new puppy, and the responsibility has increased my anxiety to really high levels. Of course I've had bites and scratches from the puppy, that's what puppies do, so I think my anx has zerod in on the worst possible scenario. In the UK we are classed as rabies free,the puppy isn't rabid as far as I can tell and I know it's just nonsense, I just can't get it out of my head!

    Hi jmcg,

    I doubt you have rabies it is that thing called anxiety you have got .Please what ever you do don't go on Dr Google because you will convince yourself you have it.With our minds we home in on something and cannot get it out of our minds .I am sure you would be very ill if you had.The scratches and little nips as you say happen with puppies,please try and get it out of your head (easier said than done I know)

    Just enjoy your puppy who will soon be over that stage so enjoy the playtime while a puppy,like children you will look back and thnk where has that growing up time gone.

    Good Luck
