I need help!

Last summer my family and I were camping in our new trailer and we left for the day and came back to a trailer that had a mice party! The Mice were everywhere! Of course, my mom being a germofobic, cleaned the trailer spottless of germs!

Next weekend my family and I are using the trailer to camping again and I am so scared to sleep and be in it! Not becasuse of mice, but becasue of their germs!

I know that there is no way that any germs are in that trailer, but it is still going to bother me!

Help!!!!!!!!!

    I could tell you that there are germs everywhere, but that probably doesn't help you.

    You might be able to stay home -- but that's no fun.

    What do you think your options are?

  • Health -

    Wherever you are there are "germs" — bacteria, viruses etc. — we cannot avoid them, wherever you are. Many of them are necessary for our survival, like those in our stomach that aid our digestion. In addition, your body has immune systems that protect against most germs.

    To help these immune systems, you can eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly, and get adequate sleep. Washing your hands with soap and water after going to the bathroom and before eating also helps.

    Worrying, as you seem to be doing, is useless. If you are worrying about something, either you can do something about it or you can't. If you can do something, do it (like the suggestions above)! If you can't do anything about it, concentrate on problems that you can effect.

    If you continue to worry about things you cannot control, you are more likely to neglect things you can, leading to more problems and increased chances of depression. (Worrying about a comet striking the earth or the mere presence of germs are definitely some things you cannot control.)

    Concentrating on dealing with those things you can effect helps you to feel more in control of your life.

    I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
