Sore Throat Meltdown

Last night I fell asleep on the couch for about an hour, when I woke up and had a sore throat and instantly began to panic. I mean I went from 0-60 in about 2 seconds. I am so completely terrified that I am going to get Covid-19 that I can barely function. I am driving myself and my husband nuts. I am beyond worried that I am going to get Covid and it will end up killing me or someone else that I pass it to.

I honestly can’t take this anymore. I feel like I am losing my mind with panic. I try so hard to talk to myself through it logically. You don’t have a fever or a cough, you are a little congested it is probably just allergies. I maybe feel better for 5 minutes and then I am right back to the same place. Somebody please tell me I’m not the only one who feels this way, because I’ll be honest I’m the only one who struggles with this in my family and it is a very lonely place to be in.
