Right be prepared to laugh.....I have awful health anxiety that is slowly getting better but sometimes it just blows up out of nowhere, at the moment it's very bad the other day I was having a bath and dunked my head under water and as soon as I did it I remembered reading something about brain eating amoebas- a thing that loves warm, dirty water/ lakes, that gets into your brain from water getting shot up your nose , uses your brain as food and then you die. There's only been like 35 cases in 10 years, all in the US (I live in England) and all from people diving/putting their head under warm lakes in the summer. But of course my anxiety has fully made me believe that by me putting my head under warm water in the bath in the British winter weather, I'm going to die in 2 weeks. Online it said that they can also live in water heaters and tap water (again this is all in the US). I have a headache at the moment and Ive convinced myself that this is what's causing it. I know how stupid and I don't want to scare anyone I just need someone to tell me to stop being stupid.
