Anxious fear meds: Many people with anxiety and OCD fear medication for no reason. Ativan or Xanax (alprazolam) is the BEST help you can get, and will relax you, not kill you or make you feel weird! Have a friend hold your hand for half an hour after taking your first pill. I promise you will feel much more relaxed! See the book Hope and Help fort Your Nerves by Dr. Claire Weekes, "don't be bluffed by a thought!" she said!

Weight loss: Worms are not as common as they used to be, but still occur as you know. They are easy to treat with medication, so I would not worry too much. Weight loss is a good sign of worms if you are eating a lot of food. I would ask the doctor who treated your sister. They may want to treat you or examine you if this was recent and you live in the same home. Try not to worry too much!

Sounds like guilt...: When we do something we know is not wise, we often have a guilty conscience afterward. Guilt can cause us to worry about things that will probably not happen. Herpes usually takes longer to develop, but a throat culture by your doctor is usually taken and may show cause. If it does not clear up, return to your doctor. It is wise to know a sexual partner well enough to know their sexual history
