Rabies does not come from a healthy dog

It comes from a Rabid dog

Doctor :  
A Rabid dog will be like very irritated and will bite everyone
Doctor :   and it will die within a week of becoming rabid

Doctor :  
But yours is a healthy dog I guess
User :   yes
Doctor :  
So there wont be any issues
User :   so would i know if i had rabbies like any symptoms??
Doctor :  
Get your dog vaccinated against rabies
Doctor :  
Rabies is a latent disease
User :   like right now i feel fine i have no pain or anything
User :   what is latent?
Doctor :   it can manifest in a span of 6 months-6years
Doctor :  
Long time for it to manifest itself in terms of symptoms
Doctor :  
I suggest you not worry about it right now
User :   i see so do you think i am just worrying myself over nothing
Doctor :  
Because your dog is quite healthy as you have mentioned
Doctor :  
It wont be possible to keep a Rabid dog at home
Doctor :  
So, no worries required
User :   so its probly just my anxiety
Doctor :  
Yes,
User :   thank you very much
Doctor :  
I will give you some tips
Doctor :  
before you leave
User :   i have a few other questions also
User :   if you dont mind
Doctor :  
Let me finish it in this regard
Doctor :  
first
User :   okay
Doctor :  
Get your dog vaccinated against Rabies
User :   i think my parents already did
Doctor :  
And you also get vaccinated
User :   okay
Doctor :  
You will require some 3 shots in a span of 1 months
Doctor :  
'month
Doctor :  
So that is a protection against Rabies
User :   can i do that when im going to get say a flu shot?
Doctor :  
Now you can proceed with other queries
User :   I quit my marijuana use and heres what i felt for awhile i felt extremly crazy couldnt sleep didnt want to eat or anything like that
Doctor :  
Ok
User :   every day it gets better now i can eat
Doctor :  
Fine
User :   exept i have this wierd numbing in my legs sometimes and i have Very high mental energy i feel like i have alot of energy and i see very good but i see like staticy allilte
Doctor :  
Ok
User :   do you know if thats part of the withdrawls or what?
Doctor :  
Yes
Doctor :  
There will be physical dependance/addiction what we call as
Doctor :  
But it will get better day by day
User :   is very high anxiety and irritable mood part of the withdrawl as well?
Doctor :   Yes
Doctor :  
Psychological dependence develops first
Doctor :  
and later physical dependance
Doctor :  
And when you quit it both symptoms occur
User :   i see
User :   ive quit before though and never felt this way til now?
User :   this is the final quit btw
Doctor :  
Good
Doctor :  
Meanwhile I would like you to avail the help of a Psychiatrist as well as a Clinical Psychologist
User :   i see and last night i went to go see a new horrow movie called saw 6
User :   and after 15 minutes i left the theatear feeling wierd breathing and wierd feelings
Doctor :  
Ok
User :   i calmed down but when i got home
User :   i sat down for about an hour and then felt my breathing getting scarce
Doctor :  
Ok
User :   and i started freaking out and begging my family to call 911
User :   my throat became very dry
User :   and i felt as if i were going to suffacate
User :   and then i felt better after about 30min
Doctor :  
and later?
User :   but now i have flim in my throat and my breathing is good but i feel its not its hard to explain its like im trying to find something wrong with it do you know what this could be?
Doctor :  
Ok
Doctor :  
I will tell you
Doctor :  
Anxiety neurosis manifests in such forms
Doctor :  
Mimicking a cardiac event like
Doctor :  
And already you are in Withdrawal stage
Doctor :  
and a horror movie will have more impact on your Psyche
User :   i see
User :   i also feel now when im around alot of ppl i start to feel the anxiety coming when alot of ppl are talking at once
Doctor :  
So, I recommend you not to watch such stuffs until you are back to normal
Doctor :  
Ok
User :   okay when should i start feeling back to normal?
Doctor :  
Like hallucinations I guess
Doctor :  
It will be progressive and can occur within the next 3-4 months
Doctor :  
But Psychiatric help is mandatory
Doctor :  
So You need to visit the Psychiatrist
User :   i see
Doctor :  
otherwise it will end up in you going back to it again
User :   no way
User :   ive learned my lesson hehe
Doctor :  
So I hope that you are getting it cleared
Doctor :  
Good
Doctor :  
But take the help of the expert
User :   yes i also have a cangasore in my mouth its pretty big could that be caused by anxiety and fear and everything
Doctor :   Mostly no
Doctor :  
Because it does not result in physical lesions
Doctor :  
So get it examined and reassured once
User :   i see but back to the fluid in throat would that have anything to do with anxiety or anxiety attack
Doctor :  
Yes, that is expected
Doctor :  
AS there will be increased secretions
Doctor :  
due to sympathetic stimulation
User :   ah okay well thanks for your help
Doctor :  
Is there any thing else I can help you with?
User :   No but everything ive been telling you do you think that the rabbies thing was just my worring over nothing
Doctor :  
Yes

Reassured
