I mean there are rare cases of chronic colonization, you could in theory be an intermediate host (meaning you can't spread it to other people).

The only time it generally becomes a brain infection is in AIDs patients or chemotherapy/cancer patients with severe immunosuppression, and there are antibiotics that treat it.

Any background info you are willing to share so I can give you context?

Nuthin special - just had some Cats waay back, reasonably healthy, no compromise known of immune system. Now in later 60s, Morbid Obese, lymphedema, BP under control, A-Fib under treatment, no mental issues known...

Edited to add - working My way towards Gastric Sleeving.

Thanks for steppin in!
