Unhappy New Here with MRSA concerns

First off I am thrilled to find all of you here. Thank you for making this frightening part of my life a little less frightening.

Now ,my concern is this....I was diagnosed last week with MRSA by way of a cultured Abscess. I was put on 10 days of Bactrim(sp) and 7 days of showering with Hibiclens and 7 days 3X a day nasal swabbing with Bactroban(sp) ...all good so far.. I finally stopped crying every day and started to relax a bitfeeling like I could get a handle on this...
...Then tonight happened....
The end of my second day of the Bactroban swab, and now I notice some blood on the qtip. Okay now I am terrified....have I just introduced the staph directly into my head????I have been trying so hard to get into a "good MRSA routine" like so many sites recommend. I have washed all clothes that I think I may have worn...changed my sheets for brand new ones...replaced my hand towels with paper ones for better sanitaion ....given everyone headaches from constant lysol-ing...and washed my hands raw with soap and liquid hand sanitizer.

Now this. Am I doomed ....I feel like crawling into a hole and giving up. I haven't hugged any of my kids since this diagnosis...I had been hugging my dogs like the end of the world ...and now I see I can infect them too....what do I have left ...
