My feelings have changed. I keep away from people, no longer socialize. I keep thinking I will pass it on to someone else or someone will give me something. It has kept me home 99% of the time. I am too scared to get close to anyone now.
I used to be social and loved going out.
Now I only feel anxiety (on some days), and a real sense of feeling alone.
These parasites can really change a person. Bad in the short-run and hopefully in the long-run, for the better.
I think I will always be haunted in some way and that makes me shut-down a bit.
