I used to believe that when you throw up, you would throw up your internal organs as well as your food. I would always be scared when I had to throw up and I swallowed my vomit a lot of times because of this.

Until my mom told me the story of when she had the chicken pox on Christmas day when she was about six, I used to believe that it was physically impossible to get sick on a holiday, or on your birthday, because those days had magical powers.

Since drinking after someone who was sick meant you might get sick, I used to believe that if you were sick you could drink after someone who was well to get rid of your sickness. This belief landed me a serious case of strep throat. I didn't believe it after that.

When I was a kid, I used to believe that everyone had two bugs in their stomachs... One to digest food, the other to pass liquid. Whenever someone had a stomach bug, that meant one of their bugs were sick.

I used to believe that when my hair fell out in the shower, that I had cancer. Later I learned that the amount of hair I lost daily was normal, not to mention that "cancer hair loss" is caused by Chemo, not cancer.

When I was younger, I used to believe that "head ache" or "stomach ache" was "head egg/stomach egg", and I thought it hurt because an egg was growing inside of your head or stomach.

You know how some medicines and the like have the label saying "keep out of reach of children"? Well I thought it meant if a kid was in possession of it they would go to jail. I remember one time when I had Chicken Pox I had some lotion i could put on and my mom let me hold onto it but because it has the "keep out of reach of children" on it I was scared the police might somehow find out I had it and throw me in jail!

The AID's panic was in full bloom when I was in 5th grade. The News was always announcing how many people were contracting AID's and dying.... at the same time my mama was pursuing the American Dream of being even slimmer and using a diet help called "Aids".
I began sneaking them out of her desk and flushing them down the toilet.. until it broke the toilet. She was yelling at me and asked what I thought I was doing... "I didn't want you to die of AIDS" lots of bawling...

You know how some diseases are named after the person who discovered them? Well as a kid I thought the person INVENTED the disease and wondered what kind of person would create horrible diseases on purpose
