worried about superbugs!

Posted , 2 users are following.

So I’ve been reading in the news lately that we’re about to be up against a lot of superbugs/antibiotic resistant bacteria and its going to be like the 18/1900’s and a simple cut is going to kill you. Is this true? If it is true how would we stop it? Do I need to be worried about it?!? I cant stop worrying and I cant focus on anything without it in my head

     Try to relax. I have heard the same thing back 25 years ago. There are some bacteria‘s that are more resistant than others to antibiotics. But they are always inventing new antibiotics.

    It’s not going to be like all of a sudden every antibiotic will not work.  We can’t believe 100% everything that we read.

    Believe me, worry is not worth it and a useless emotion. We need to take one day at a time and not think too far into the future. I wasted over 25 years worrying about everything and I can’t get back one of those days. Nothing bad ever happened. Don’t do that to yourself. 

    There were always news stories  that  predicted something horrible was going to happen that never Occurred. And there will  always will be those kinds of stories.

     so go live your life and enjoy it! My thought is if something bad ever happens then I will deal with it at that time.

     I can think of a thousand  things that I could worry about but it’s just not worth . 99% Of things we worry about don’t actually happened in the 1% is usually nothing serious.

      Thank you so much for your reply! have have seen some of your other replies on other threads and they have helped me a lot. Ever since I can remember I have been a worrier, and I would even be sick  to my stomach from worry when I was just 9 years old. Again thanks so much

      Great! You are very welcome. I think some of my answers come from years and years of life experience with anxiety and stress.

        I was a worrier since the age of five. I spent decades worrying which never solved one single thing. I think it actually created my high level of anxiety. But we don’t have to let fear and worry and anxiety control our lives. There are some great meditations on YouTube for anxiety. Hang in there and don’t forget to laugh and smile  because life goes by way too fast! 😁🌹
