Yes, this does mean success. Do you get a flu shot? I get one every year and it really helps. If you are washing your hands a lot, do you use any lotion to counteract the dryness? That would really help. I use lubriderm, it is good, I get unscented because of sensitive skin. Another good one is, neutrogena. But I always get the unscented. This will keep your hands soft even with washing all of the time.
I am glad that you made the cookies. Sounds yummy. Take things one day at a time. Try to live in the moment instead of worrying about the future. This helps a lot with anxiety. And breathing helps. Focus on your breathing, breathe in through the nose (smelling the roses) and out throught the mouth (blowing out the candles). This could help to bring your anxiety down.
I think it is kind of common to worry about getting sick, especially when youn have so much on your plate. Go for a flu shot next year. It doesn't prevent all of the flus, but takes care of the major ones. Taht would save you a lot of grief.
Keep posting and let us know how you are doing. We all really do care about you.
