Nope not scared at all. What little fear I did have evaporated upon the rare discovery of a set of medical books published in 1919. Things like Scarlett Fever and Smallpox were huge concerns (remember, no antibiotics at that time) but Measles (and chickenpox) barely registered an entry. The one big thing that stuck with me was they were pretty insistant that for the first few days the patient needs to be kept quiet, and if that is done there should be no complications. In our go-go-go society I have to wonder if some of the children who do have a terrible time with it were allowed to do that. (I realize as well that unless really sick, many parents don't have a choice but to take thier kids to outside care, and that also, we as a society no longer see Measles much, and it's likely that initial symptoms can be mistaken for an everyday illness.) But no, there are FAR worse conditions out there to keep me up at night or shuddering with the memory of (rotovirus for example! That was AWFUL!).
