So kind of a long question but basically I live

So kind of a long question but basically I live in Victoria Texas and I live in an apt. I seen a mouse around and decided to clean up. In my pantry I found mouse droppings and chewed up plastic. I cleaned it with a broom not knowing about using protective wear or the hps virus. After killing the mouse i called our local exterminator and he classified the mouse as a Norway mouse that’s not known to carry hps. So it was a little relief to me because of reading everything about hps. So after that I cleaned an area that I found to be where the mouse came from. It was a closet there were old boxes in there so I used a bleach and water solution and wore gloves goggles and a mask. The only issue is I used just a 3m dust mask not knowing that I had to use an n95 mask. So my question is do you think I have anything to worry about when it comes to the hps virus. And I first came into contact with the cleaning on Tuesday so it’s been 3 days and I know it states that it usually takes 7 to 9 days and as late as 8 weeks before there are any symptoms. I’m just worried and need some reassurance I’m okay or why I should do. Thank you.

I don t eat fruit or vegtables. Do I have an eating disoder ? I love chocolate and instead of an apple for breakfeast I would have a chocolate bar. I never usually have breakfeast. I would easily scoff 6 jaffa cakes at 11.00am if I wake up at 7.00am. I eat meat most of the time and hardly eat potatoes, veg, fruit. Mostly I eat dairy products and meat. I feel as if I have an eating disorder as I eat differently to all my friends. I know everyone has different diets but mine is way out of anyone else s league, apparently I eat all the crappy snacks that aren t good for me as opposed to veg and fruit. I have tried to give up but I can t do it. I have tried to give up chocolate and start eating breakfeast but I just can t do it. Should I try viamins to get the good stuff inside of me ? My mother and father tell me I will not live as long if I don t listen to them, Is this true ? Please help me!
