Living in (stupid) fear
So someone posted (and has since deleted?) a post about killer cucumbers in Europe…apparently there’s a batch of cucumbers originating in Spain that is infected with a horrible strain of E.Coli.
This will likely not affect us here in the states. But as we all know, we get tons of this kind of stuff happening here, too. I seriously live in fear that I will be a victim of this type of poisoning. Like, it gives me crazy anxiety. My rational brain knows how dumb this is and so most of the time I can deal with it. But sometimes…like when I read articles like the one I read…I really feel, in the moment, like how can I possibly live with this anxiety!?
It’s a weird and overly-dramatic and stupid thought. But it plagues me. There is so much sickness. Everywhere. Food-related and otherwise. It’s terrifying.
