I am from Vietnam, my English is bad!
I cannot feel a moment in peace and I am here to look for guide and sympathy.
I am very worried and I have all the symptoms of OCD. I am worried over the two diseases: HIV and rabies.
1. Three years ago, I had a shock about the risk of catching HIV. I have tested negative, then I was afraid that the doctor did not use the new needle to draw my blood. Then I went to ask her about the reuse of needles, she were laughing at me. That is all right!
2. Then I got involved in the incident of HIV again, I left my bottle of water in the hotel room, when I came back, I drank the bottle up and I was afraid that someone could put HIV infected blood into the bottle.
3. I went washing my hair, I was afraid that the worker could pour fresh blood infected with HIV into my face, and possibly, some of the drops could enter my eyes( I opened my eyes and I felt that some of the drops of water( or blood) entered my eyes.
Now I developed the very frustrating feeling, when I am walking down on the streets, there are some trees above my head, and I think that many drugs could hang the HIV infected needle under the tree in order to infect everyone. Does this happen in the history ?
Because I had exposed to the Rabies before, and I have read a lot of information about this disease, I understand that Rabies is very fatal.
I live in Vietnam, one of the country where Rabies is still occurred. I have taken vaccine but the vaccine could protect me for one year only, not for my whole life.
I am worried that in the future, I could be exposed to the Rabies again. I am very freaked out to see the dogs, there are many dogs around my house, I am sure that many of them are not vaccinated.
But I also develop the anxiety of Rabies when I have meal in the restaurant or buy food from food stand, I am afraid that some rabid dogs could lick the food before I eat it. Or when I am eating a bowl of noodle, I have to answer the cell phone, and the dog could lick the food I am eating, then I eat the infected food and rabies enters my mouth and infect me!
I want to define the real transmission of Rabies. Could I catch Rabies from eating the infected food or drink? How long does Rabies live on food, drink or on objectives, for example, the glass? I want to have the very reliable source of Rabies Transmission. So that I donot worry over the exposure of Rabies again!
I am planning to see the doctor, but I do not want to take meds because the meds could affect the production of my antibody against Rabies!
Please help me! Could any one help me? Show me the link or web site about the best knowledge of HIV transmission and Rabies transmission!
