OCD Ebola

I have been obsessing over this Ebola virus in the U.S. and its really playing a toll on my emotions. I feel so lost and scared. I have spent all day reading articles and comments about it.(on top of the ISIS issue) It all comes down to being scared to die but it is out of control. I feel so lost like I'm in a horror movie or a dream and I feel scared & I just want to feel normal :(

Lulu..I'm trying :/ I do believe the media makes things 1000 times worse and people adding there little know it all comments don't help either but it is happening and I'm hoping and praying it's fixed and fast!
