  • I had the measles.

    I remember laying in my bed and looking at my bookcase on the wall. It was a huge bookcase. I don’t remember if it was my mom or my dad, but one of them was standing behind the bookcase and pushing it over onto the other.

    I remember screaming trying to make them stop.

    My parents came into the room and explained that I was sick, and had a fever, and was having a nightmare.
