    Spit/saliva on the ground

    So I was out for a walk near my apartment complex, I was walking in a paved area that is a little bit overgrown, itís just the top part of where the complex is that isnít really used for anything though some people do walk their dogs there.

    Anyway as I was coming back down to where the apartments/cars are I saw a few puddles of what appeared to be spit or saliva? It wasnít really foamy or weird but definitely bubbly/looked like spit and there were quite a few decent sized puddles of it. I didnít touch it but when I first saw it I did lean down a bit to see what it was, I had flip flops on. I donít believe I stepped in it/didnít feel anything wet on my foot, but could it have been from an animal with rabies?

    I didnít see any animals or people around, I feel stupid but also really scared. Iím scared that it could have touched my foot since I had open shoes on, I donít really have any open cuts on my foot just a few bug bites.

    You can't get rabies like this and you are fine.

    Sunlight kills the rabies virus. Don’t overthink your situation, it doesn’t make sense. Good luck with you anxiety!

    Hearing that it doesn't make sense honestly helps a lot i always feel like if even other anxiety sufferers think I'm being irrational then I definitely know I am, and thank you!! Trying my best to work through this one, keeping myself away from Google and trying to rationalize

    Of course! I know for a fact that you donít have the rabies virus because of the situation you describe and also because of how rare it is. In all seriousness, the fear of rabies is the most irrational anxiety in this whole forum; besides for SFI. If i were you, I wouldnít waste another second on this fear oh and also, Iíve gone through the rabies fear myself, so trust me I know how scary it is. Itís good to hear that youíre getting a peace of mind, hopefully it stays that way.

    Thank you for responding! It's nice to hear from someone who has been through this ridiculous fear too, I think I might try to use the CBT workbooks that are linked in the HA forum, I think they would help me a lot, whenever my mind tries to go to thoughts about rabies I try to distract myself or force myself to rationalize, I know I'll get through this, just wish I could get rid of this fear for good.

    I've been doing okay but tonight I felt a little achy/off and took my temperature and it was 100?? I was at my friends apartment beforehand and it was very warm there but could that raise my temp? It was only 100 once, I took it again a while later and it was down to 99, other than a little achy I don't have any other symptoms so the fact my temperature is up is really freaking me out and scaring me that it could be rabies? I'm really anxious at the moment and not sure how to calm down.

    There is absolutely no way it could be rabies. It's completely impossible.
