Sorry for the subject matter! I have serious anxiety issues, possibly crossed with OCD, and seriously need to find an answer to this. Without getting into the details, let’s just say that I may have come into contact with my own fecal matter a few days ago and am now worried about the possibility of contracting a disease. Actually, I’m not so much worried about my own health; if I get sick, I get sick. Rather, I’m concerned about spreading a disease to other people - especially because I work in a retail pharmacy and actually fill people’s medication for them (although I’m not a pharmacist, so I have zero actual medical knowledge - hence why I’m asking this question).
Supposing that it is possible to get sick from one’s own fecal matter, would there always be symptoms? Because if I get sick from this, then I can at least try and figure out how to minimize the risk to other people. But if I never show any symptoms myself, then is it possible that I’ve still contracted a disease that could be transmitted to other people? If so, then I’m very concerned, because then there would be no way of knowing whether or not I’m contaminating other people’s medication!
