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.
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.
Someone please tell me I'm an idiot
