So a few months ago I had a really bad panic attack where I thought I was gonna puke and have a heart attack. I got better but recently I’ve been going crazy hearing people saying they’re going through a case of the flu and in some cases norovirus. This terrifies me to the point where I wash my hands to where my skin is so dry that I bleed. I ask my family members every day how they feel and I can tell they’re in the know that I have anxiety about them getting sick so they go out of their way to comfort me. I really need help because this fear is stopping me from going out in public and scared to go to work especially considering I’m a hospital employee. Does anyone have any advice?
