That Deja Vu was a dream you had or you predicting the future. This means the next dream could possibly be the future. When I was in elementary school I found out my siblings and friends also had this power. We were like “oh my gosh, you have prophetic powers too!”

I used to believe that we could be in a coma and none of this was real. No Earth, no me, no families, no friends, no significant others, no animals, no plants, not anything. And when we woke up we were something else. We grieved for the family that never was and try to get away from the real family. But we die within a week of waking up. (I was and still am strange)

That when I dreamed at night, it was because a fog was hovering over my head. White forg for a good dream, black fog for a bad dream

I used to think Cancer Research was just people learning about the disease and thought all the money would go to doctors and medical students because they would be using expensive computers and would have to pay a big internet bill for all the different websites they visited!!!!

In primary school, I thought my teacher was diabetic, because she was testing a pen on her finger, and the red ink looked like blood.
I thought 'how can she be allowed to do that when she's working, in front of us kids?!'

top belief!

Thanks to a lullaby which said that “mother never sleeps” I used to be sure that my mother didn’t sleep, even if she has always been a sleepyhead and I always saw her sleeping at night and in the afternoons too.

When I was a kid, I thought that the only reason I couldn't fly or walk on water was because I just needed to practice.
It must run in the family, because my mother claims she used to think the same about levitating.

I used to believe that Lupus (the auto-immune disease) was actually a werewolf disease. I thought this because I saw an internet meme when I was 12 about Dr. House. One of the other doctors suggested that the patient might have Lupus, and Dr. House scoffs at the ridiculous idea and says it is not Lupus. I was a smart kid, and knew that Lupus meant wolf in Latin. So from that meme, I knew three things about Lupus:
1. It’s a disease.
2. It was so ridiculous that Dr. House scoffed at the idea of a patient having it.
3. It meant “wolf”.
Therefore, Lupus must be a werewolf disease. I thought it was a made-up disease, like a zombie virus, so when I heard of someone actually having Lupus in real life (around age 17), I thought it was a joke before realizing that Lupus must be something different than what I thought it was.
