I used to believe that red cordial was medicine. It was kept on the top shelf and we were only allowed some when we had an upset stomach. You can imagine the problems that ensued when, one day at a friends birthday party, I thought the parents were making us all drink medicine...

My grade six teacher got sick in that year with glandular fever. I'd never heard of that disease before; everytime I heard people say it, I thought they were calling it "Glenangela Fever". Kids at school were telling me that it is also called the "kissing disease". So, I came to the conclusion that it got this name because a boy named Glen and a girl named Angela kissed and ended up getting sick. I was later corrected about this my mishear.

I used to think that amputate (meaning to cut off) meant to heal, or fix. I got the image of lotion and ointments when I heard this, so I was talking to my mom (this was about 1-2 years ago, and I just turned 13).
Me: Why are Grandmaís fingers crooked? (She had athrightious)
Mom: Because she has arthrightious.
Me: Why canít we just amputate them? (Since healing something is good, amputating must be good, huh?)
Mom: Thatís a mean thing to say.
Me: Isnít amputating good?
Mom: No, itís very mean.
Me: ButÖ isnít healing her fingers good?
Mom: Amputating is cutting something off.
Me: Oh.

When I was like four, I always got sick and when my Mom wanted me to take my medicine, she used to say things like it will help my bloodsells and my stomach and different body parts and she would always say that my blood cells were at war with germs and it sounded like they were alive how she explained it so I used to belive my insides were alive and the food in my belly would talk to eachother and when I took medicine or ate something healthy, I would look down at my stomach cheering for my blood cells!

When I was a kid, I thought you threw up when the food in your stomach had collected up to your throat and needed to be emptied.

I used to think that, when I got sick, it was my tushy where the illness was, since my mom took my temperature there several times a day and always announced how high it was and seemed so concerned with what was going on "back there."

When I was younger I saw a rugrats episode where Chuckie was scared to get a shot and he had a dream that his stuffed bear got one and then it exploded, and after that I got scared I would explode if I got one... I still have this irrational fear.

I was once in my mom's car when we drove past a 'naval hospital'. I thought it was a navel hospital - a hospital for people with injured bellybuttons.

I read the book "The Velveteen Rabbit" when I was a child. It's a story about a young boy who contracts Scarlet Fever, set in a time when they didn't know much about diseases. They ended up having to burn all of the boy's toys, bedding, and stuffed animals -- including his favourite, his velveteen rabbit. I was terrified for years, even into college, of getting Scarlet Fever. I couldn't bear the though of my favourite teddy bear and pillow -- which have been with me my whole life -- being tossed into a bonfire. Scarlet Fever is still one of my biggest fears,

I knew that people who had cancer frequently lost their hair, but I didn't know it was a symptom of the treatment. I thought it was a symptom of cancer itself. Cue heart attack when I noticed my long hair falling out more than normal in the shower!

I used to believe that cancer itself made you bald, rather than the chemotherapy treatment!
