ok well i used to post on here alll the time but i haven't had to in a while because i've been doing really well. but recently, there's been warnings of staph (MRSA) outbreaks that are untreatable, and you can die. and this makes me verryyy anxious, and it's all i think about. especially since some girl was in my school and swam in the pool and had it and they had to close the pool and sanitize it. then some other kid in my school might have it. and i'm so nervous that i'm gonna get it ! cuz you can get it from like any close contact and i am with people allll day in school and at work and i just feel like so vulnerable ! i feel like living in a bubble! lol. and i tried talking with friends about it but no one gets it ! ahhhhhhhh i feel like ripping my hair out! ok sorry for the rambling i just had to get it out there! thanks for listening ! :]
ps. also nervous about the possible "pandemic flu" that there's been warnings of. :[ !

Is there a school nurse or counselor that you can shared your fears with?  That would be an excellent source of information to put your mind at rest that you are not in the middle of a pandemic illness.

Take care
