Falling back to fear of naegleria fowleri
« on: June 14, 2014, 08:23:46 PM »
So I haven't been on this forum in a while, which is a good thing. Today though, I was playing basketball with some friends on blacktop. It was raining and about 55-60 degrees outside. The basketball we were playing with was dirty, and I have had bad allegeries, so my nose was running the whole time. I kept wiping my nose with my dirty fingers, which were so dirty they were brown. I also had raindrops go in my nose the whole time we were playing. I'm so afraid that I could get naegleria fowleri from this. Can I? Is there any possible chance I could catch it from that? Please respond, I'm freaking out.

I keep stating the true facts about this thing. That only 2 people a year, on average, actually get this thing. Think of the population of the US. Millions of people. To be one of the two? Very unlikely. More chance of winning the lottery twice in one week.
