    Re: Rabies from Bats (real bite marks)

    Thank you so much for the long reply. This is so very kind of you and have put my mind at ease somewhat.
    I think I just keep replaying that day in my head trying to find moments or scenarios that I could have forgotten that could be a bat biting me. I know the statistic says very low probability but I can't stop feeling/thinking that what if it was a bat- the two pronged marks does not come from nowhere. Her house does have bats and if it was a bat on the ground, then that bat definitely had rabies because bats usually don't stay grounded unless they were sick.

    Then again, there were other people there wearing shorts and dresses as well, why is it just me who got bitten by the bat?

    The symptoms I'm feeling also makes it even more difficult to dismiss/forget about the fear. Everything just seems to be a perfect storm leading me to believe I'm doomed...

    Thank you so much for your reply

    I'd be very surprised if they give it to you.

    I'm debating in the ER parking lot :(. The shots are super expensive, but on the other hand it's my life... Most importantly it's because of my symptoms- pain and tingly in my legs and forearms that are worrying me sick- I'm afraid rabies are attacking my peripheral nervous system already and that if I do not do something, I'm gonna let it invade central nervous system .. I'm going crazy here I feel like .. rabies is the most profound fear I've ever had 😭

    Take a breath and use your logic. YOU DO NOT HAVE RABIES.

    ...Or that your anxiety is making you tense and hyper aware of every tiny bodily sensation.

    One hour at a time, a minute at a time if necessary.

    The fact you didn't go in shows that deep down you know you weren't bitten Hang onto that!
