One day my older sister told me how "Earwigs" got their name: They like to crawl into your ears to bite the auricles and then build their nest into your brain to feed their offsprings from your ears. I'm 26 now and know better but I am still very afraid of Earwigs :( Damn you, sister!

I thought a butterfly turns into a caterpillar instead of vice versa, and thought it would be better if they just stayed butterflies..

My parents used to tell me that my hair looked like a rat's nest in the morning. So, at night I would roam around my room looking for giant rats.

When I was very young I had a nanny that could catch bees and remove the sting to make them harmless and let me play with them before they died. When she left no matter how many times I got stung trying to play with bees I would respond to my mum's warnings with "Bees are not bad! They are my friends, only that one was a mean one!". It took nine bee stings to enlighten me and sixteen years later I'm still alergic!

My father told me when I was little that if I stayed in the bathtub too long the "drain spiders" would come up and get me. I was deathly afraid of spiders. I believed this until my early teens. Thanks dad.

When I was little we used to have sugar ants in our house and I was so afraid of them biting me and hurting like the fire ants did (I'm allergic). So every night when I had to use the bathroom, I'd be terrified that the loud toilet flush would wake up the ants, so I'd end up sprinting out of the bathroom and into bed

I had older boy cousins whose yard was filled with spiders of all sizes and they knew I was terrified. They made it worse by telling me that if you stepped on a spider, it would double in size. Low and behold, I did it and two seconds later I saw a bigger version of the same spider...completely had me completely convinced!!!

When I was really and I mean really little, I used to believe that Fireflies came from Dragonflies...Because dragons breathe fire. Also that dragonflies would guard the damselflies...

I used to be terrified of spiders when I was younger. My brother once told me they crawl into my ears at night and lay eggs in my brain. I sleep with a blanket around my head ever since then.

Up until age 14, I thought stitches were little black bugs they put in your wound to heal it. This is because when I was five I had stitches placed in the center of my forehead at the hairline. All I could see was a little black through my tears.

When I was little, I slept on my side, and when I blinked, my eyelashes would brush the pillow, and I thought that I was hearing worms taking bites out of the inside of my head. I was terrified of it for the longest time......
