under my bedShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I used to believe there was two coloured goblins under my bed, like the kind in movies, that always plotted to grab me when my feet were close enough.
I used to be terrified by the malevolent puppet Punch.When I went to sleep at night I would be afraid that he was going to appear at the edge of my bed.Then I began to wonder who or what was the puppetmaster beneath my bed...
When i was younger i used to believe that there were snakes under my bed(i didn't grow up in NZ so every night my Dad would carry me to my bed so the snakes wouldn't bite me
I believed that there were three ninjas, dressed all in black under my bed, and if I hung any part of my body over the edge of the bed they would cut it off with a VERY long sword. Also had dreams, where in fact this did happen. YIKES. Still dont hang anything over the edge to this day.
I used to belive that there was an old guy living under my bed. At night I was so scared, I woke up ALOT. Around every hour. I would think I could hear him but it was my radio. I ran into my mom and dads room all the time. One night it was realy windy and garbige was tumbling on the road. I thought it was him running around outside. I stared to cry and ran in my parents room once again. They finaly told me but I still cried that whole night. Becuase of this i had manudaphobia (well thats what i call it) until 4th grade.
ps. I tried to keep it a secret!
When i was little to make me stay in my bed my mom told me that if my feet are off the bed that scary dead people would grab them, so i would stay in my bed, but i would also run and jump into my bed so they couldnt grab them..and to this day i still dont just "walk" to my bed when it's dark..
When I was 3-5 I used to believe that there was a green slimy monster under my bed and an evil spoon and fork pair with scissors in my closet. So I concocted a monster potion that would put them to sleep with me for the night and they wouldn't get me. I sprayed it under my bed for a really long time and I still believe in the fork&spoon...I will never go to sleep without my closet door closed.
i believed when i was about 6 that there was a monster under my bed and i would check it every night. One night i had a dream and i dreamt i looked under my bed and this big long hairy monster was looking at me and i wouldn't sleep in my bed for 3 weeks. I even did a test by putting food under my bed and see if a monster ate it. I woke up the next day and it had been eaten but now i realize it was probably my dog...
I used to think a big alligator lived under my bed...I was very scared of it...I thought if it got mad it would kill me. So I never looked under the bed..and I would throw food and things under it...The smell was what I thought was the alligator getting bigger. I figure it I fed it enough It would explode. I threw so much food my parents smelt it from their room after a good week of food throwing. When they found they convince me the alligater wasn't hungry and he was nice.....o geez
There was a giant that lived under my full sized bed at night. He would try to get me by reaching his arms up from underneath, and touching me with his hands. If I lay in the middle of the bed though, he couldn't reach me.
After watching the Howdy Doody show I thought that the puppets would bit my toes if they stuck out of the blankets when I was asleep.
I used to believe that if you slept without socks and for some reason uncovered your feet in the middle of the night, some weird creature would come and suck the blood out of my thumb :p
I used to believe there were trolls living under my brother's bed.
As a child I was a affaid of the dark. I was just getting over my fear when a teacher said she used to believe there was a mad axa man under her bed - always. This really scared the hell outta me and it took me years to get over that comment.
I used to believe that there was a square of quicksand on the floor at the end of my bed. So every morning, I would go to the end of my bed and then jump off making sure to get over it safely.
i used to believe (and still do) that if you dont stay under the covers in the dark "the night things" can get you, not a single part of you can be out of the covers. i wouldnt (and wont) go anywhere dark or in shadows when its dark at night. i hear the night things and i see them. if you've ever seen Fear of the Dark then you know what im talking about but im really scared of it.
i use to belive that there was a crazy clown under neath my bed. so every night before going to bed i made soure the hall light was on and my night light was on. i would allso make shoure i had my trusty teadybear. now i relize how stupit and crazy i was.
Once before I fell asleep, I dropped one of my dolls. I didn't realize it had fallen off and I thought my mattress had sucked it in. I was so scared to drop any of my dolls ever again. At times, I was sure the mattress would swallow me too if I got in when the lights were out.
i used to believe that there were monsters under my bed that once i had gone to bed and i was lying there they would jump out and eat sleeping children so i always used to pretend that i was dead and lie really still so they wouldnt take me away!What made it even worse was that whenever I opened my eyes to see if i could see the monsters, i could see my dressing gown hangning up and i would think that they were actually there!
Even now i sometimes scare myself with the idea!
When i was young, i used to believ all the wrinkles in the bed sheet were snakes and if i stuck my foot out at night i would get bitten and die and i thought the big wrinkles were monsters.
i always slept curled up in a ball untill my mom told me there wasnt anything there.
