Hi all. I know this must happen ALL the time, but I'm still freaked out because I have health anxiety and I can't help it. I just began testing my cat yesterday because he has been sick with diarrhea since Saturday and the only time he seemed to improve was after no insulin for 24 hours (since he hadn't been eating). So, this morning he finally ate, so I picked him to test but didn't get enough blood. I picked up the used lancet and tried a second time. This time I pricked my own finger with the lancet I'd just poked his ear with. I guess I wouldn't have thought much of it if he wasn't also sick right now. He is improving on the anti-diarrhea med the vet gave us (and his sugars are normal without insulin!) but my other cat started with diarrhea yesterday so it seems like it must be something infectious. After getting pricked I immediately squeezed out a bunch of blood and washed it. Am I being crazy for worrying so much? It just freaks me out that he's been sick with something he probably infected my other cat with and now I've picked myself with his dirty lancet. Thanks for any insight!!
