Hello there. I can understand your concern. You are repeatedly posting the same question again and again despite it being answered by our doctors. Rabies is a 100 percent fatal disease and if you had rabies you would have been dead in 2002 itself. There is absolutely no chance that due to what happened in 2002, it will affect you in 2016. I think you need counselling by a psychiatrist. Better consult a psychiatrist in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
