    Hi All,


    My Name is Adel and I just joined this website. I am a new memeber and I am so happy to have found this website. I see everyone is so supportive to eachother and I hope to do the same


    I have had this phobia since i was about the age of 8 and now I am 22 years of age and still fear *v.


    I have a quick question I have some co-workers at work that sit neat me who have caught the *sv. Now I washed my hands and used alcohol based sanatizers like every hour. I didnt have direct contact with them but i did speak with them and they sit near me.


    My question is its been 5 days now and I am still fine, I worry I will catch it? you think I have a high possibility or I should be fine. I cant stop obbsessing over the fact that I have it and every little tummy pain I get I assume its the *sv. Your advice will be greatly appreciated


    Thank you all in advance.


    ~Adel~

    Usually you would get symptoms between 24 and 72 hours. I'm sure you'll be fine. [img]smileys/smilies_01.gif[/img]

    hey adel,


    I haven't been to Montreal for years, but I'm going to be there in September for a meeting. My daughter has been there twice in the last 2 months - auditioning for Les Grande Ballet and La La La!
