let my HA get the best of me... Naegleria fowleri scare
« on: May 25, 2014, 06:21:21 PM »
Hi everyone,
So I havent been on this forum in a while, which is a good thing! I've been doing better with my fear of naelgeria fowleri, until today. Today, I was getting my riding lawnmower out of my shed. I put 2 small blocks of wood below it so it wouldn't move last fall. Today when I pulled the blocks of wood out, I saw there was a lot of water on them and they were wet. It rained yesterday at my house, but the blocks were in the shed so I doubt they got wet from the rain. When I threw the blocks on the ground some of the water came up and went into my nose. It was also 80 degree weather today. Is it possible to contract naegleria fowleri this way? Please help

Possible? Maybe. I couldn't say for sure it isn't. Likely? Absolutely not. Without knowing the nature of the water, it's impossible to rule out anything one hundred percent, but the possibility is going to be lower than anything else you can think of. Remember, this is something incredibly rare you're worrying about here. Most of the very few known cases are due to prolonged exposure, such as swimming in contaminated waters, not from the slightest amount you might have inhaled in such an event.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking it is, and you'll be perfectly fine
