Someone please tell me I'm an idiot.
« on: June 24, 2014, 01:30:01 PM »
Washing my hair in the tub this morning and got water up my nose. Fearing n. Fowleri. This fear isn't new to me.

Things that are keeping me from going into full panic mode:
-the water didn't go WAYY up there - didn't burn. Probably went as high as you could reach a finger.
-I blew my nose over and over afterward. Like - crazy.
-it's rare.

Things that are trying to freak me out:
-we're on well water - supposedly treated.
-the amoeba that killed people in tap water was on the faucets of the sink and in their pipes.
-water was warm
-though it's rare, I read an article back in the fall that said its WAYY under reported because doctors classify it as meningitis and believe their patients died of meningitis.

it didn't go up far enough to burn, there's no way you're going to get it. You're fine :)

I actually sorta snort a little bit of water to clean my nose out...  You're fine.  I don't snort enough to fill my sinuses or nothing but I do often have a little water drip down my throat.  Been doing this for years.

Starting to get a little anxious - I have a headache on the bridge of my nose and in my eye brows. Pretty unusual for me.

No, that's not it ;)  No one needs to plug their nose while showering.

NOW that is FUNNY :sign0201:


so many people over the years post about this parasite/bacteria or whatever it is.    IDK  every time I am in the lake and I snort water up my nose---to the point I have it trickle down my throat---I think about these peeps.  and maybe this is a bit rude of me, but I laugh about it.  Never once has it occurred to me that I would become ill from it. 

Suffice it to say:  your fears are those of a person with an anxiety disorder.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state
