Giant Microbes Sleeping Sickness Trypanosoma Brucei
When I saw this I just had to get it as I feel that no self-respecting Giant Microbes collection would be complete without the Giant Microbes Sleeping Sickness Trypanosoma Brucei. I didn't even know that this existed.
Now, I have this, in fact I am full of these little eel fish type wriggly things. I know this because all I ever want to do is sleep and I am sure that there are many people that can relate to this.
Now, normally, these little fishy things are found in Africa and is passed on to humans by flies. Yak! So I am not sure how I have contracted this. But I definitely have it.
On a plus side, last year there were only an estimated 10,000 cases of this disease and that is the lowest ever. So it looks like this is on the way out. But I do still have it. In fact, I am going to rest my eyes for a minute or 60 right now.
