Possible rabies exposure??? Please reply asap!!!

Okay so the story is, one night I was at a pool with a friend. We found a baby bunny swimming in the pool trying to escape and who knows how long it was in there. I took a long pool net and pulled it out. As I pulled it out it flopped onto the deck about 6 to 7 feet away from me. I then got up close to it to see if it was okay but did not touch it at all. It's back legs were laying out wards and looked like it couldn't move at all as if it was possibly paralyzed. My friend left and came back and gave it a carrot. It was hardly chewing it but still was a little bit. I'm freaking out and wondering if it had rabies?? I have very bad anxiety and iv been stressing over it the whole time. This happened about a month ago. I was wondering If it's possible that a speck of water or something splashed onto me from a distance away and infected me somehow? I'm very scared. My doctor said it's nothing to worry about and unlikely but I don't know what to think! The baby rabbit/bunny wasn't foaming from the mouth but was laying there on the pool deck not moving but alive. I don't know if it was tired from swimming in there for so long? Any suggestions?

It was tired from swimming in the pool so long.  A speck of water is not going to give you rabies.  Listen to your doctor.  Find some help for your anxieties.  They will do you more harm over the course of your life than the rabies you are frightened of now.

It is highly unlikely that a tiny bunny would be rabid.

AnnieBrooke has good advice.
