    Fixated on my child's flu. Panicked.

    I am a mess and need some help. My 8 year old has the flu and feels terrible. Full on body pains, headache, fever that goes back up as soon as the ibuprofen wears off. It's been a little over 24 hours.

    I didn't sleep last night because I was taking care of her. Tonight she is sleeping, albeit fitfully, but I'm wide awake, convinced she's going to be that super rare case of an otherwise healthy child that dies of the flu. I even googled child deaths due to flu 2017 and read about 7 or 8 kids who just randomly took a turn for the worse and died from flu.

    I'm beyond exhausted, haven't slept well for 2 days but I can't sleep because I'm convinced I need to watch over her or she will ... I don't know... go into a coma? Stop breathing? I don't even know.

    I have no one to talk to about this and I'm stuck, beyond tired, panicked and wanting to just cry and cry.
