Panicking right now and developing a intense fear :(

Posted , 2 users are following.

I feel like such an idiot 😞 I see a myotherapist who is fantastic , (for those that do not know myotherapy is similar to acupuncture in the sense they use needle therapy in the muscles ) . Anyways my therapist is soooo lovely , I’ve seen him for over 6 months now And whatever he is doing is helping . Anyways as we are chatting I usually see him pull out the needles from my body and put them straight into the sharps container , today I noticed he was popping the used needles into a kidney bowl , which sounded to have needles already in them . At one point he almost went to pick up a needle out of the kidney bowl as we were chatty then I think he realised where his hand was and of course grabbed the needle from the new packet , anyways it got my heart racing and anxious me kicked in . What if he was distracted before and accidentally grabbed from the wrong spot while I wasn’t looking . That’s a means for blood transmission . . I didn’t make a future appointment and now I feel silly . Health anxiety always takes over 😞

This guy is amazing and I would totally offend him if I had to ask that the needles are one use only which I’m positive they would have to be but anxiety me says what if , what if !

Is anyone else like this ? I have literally come home and im in total panic mode that I’ve been getting a treatment for so long that could have a danger risk .
