Do I need help

(6 Posts)

Since the corona virus pandemic I seem to be freaking out over cleanliness I insist everything that comes in to the house is wiped down with a wipe and spray. I leave parcels 72 hours where possible. I freak out if somebody brings something in and doesn’t wipe it down. I’m constantly feeling like I can’t breathe I’m guessing this is anxiety causing this. Do I need to consult a doctor? My family say I need help but is this not normal giving the given situation or am I being unreasonable?

No it's not normal. I've not been doing any of that, I don't even think about it. You do sound like you have anxiety and would benefit from speaking to a GP.

Are you vulnerable/shielding?

What ever makes you feel comfortable.

You are definitely overdoing it.

It is an understandable reaction to the current situation, but yes it does sound like anxiety, and it would be a good idea to seek help if you carry on feeling like this

No I’m not shielding I just feel very anxious about the situation I’m terrified of it 😔 I just don’t know how I would explain this to a doctor and what they can do to help? 😔 a woman coughed in the queue behind me last week and although I know this could be many things I literally came home and cried 😔
