- When I was a toddler I used to hold my breath and make myself pass out when I was mad. I used to do this over trivial things like not wanting to eat my green beans. My parents took me to a sleep study to find out their daughter was just stubborn. They were not happy.
- I had scarlet fever when I was 4. I still have vivid memories from the hospital of being on an ice machine and in ice baths. I remember them coming to take blood with the tackle box looking case. The experience scarred me for life and I avoid doctors.
