When I was in Afghanistan we had to take anti-Malaria medicine. I ended up having a bad reaction to the first which landed me in the medical clinic where I got placed on a second medication.

It was then when my dreams became delusions. I could see men coming into my tent into my room. The vision was so vivid and real that my fear was intense. 

Eventually, the logic of my brain painted a picture in which this would make sense. But the truth was I was scared that someone wanted to rape me.
