Urgent question on lightbulb update?
So, long story short. I have a "phobia" if that's what you would like to say; of lightbulbs. I sometimes find it very stressful and anxiety kicks in when I have to change one or one breaks. The reason is because someone told me there is mercury and other stuff in them which are harmful. My question: Am I overracting to this, should I be concerned and is there anything remotely dangerous in them that can cause severe harm to me?

You could EAT the mercury in a typical CFL and suffer no detectable effects. Or, you could buy a bunch o cheap incandescent bulbs while they are still available and store them until needed.
