When I got a bad throat, I thought it is going to be like this forever now. So every 5 minutes I tried coughing, and felt disappointed and sad each time.

When I was younger, I got the Chicken Pocks, I was about 5. My sister poured grape juice on my face, she thought it was funny, I didn't want to get up and wash it off my face, becasue I didn't feel well, well this was a time when feather pillows were popular, so I layed my head on my feather pillow, and my face got covered in feather, I didn't have a pillow case becuase my sister was bowering mine, (She had goton sick all over it)
I woke up and my mom came in, and she said "You have featehrs all over your face!"
I started freaking because I thought I was turning into a chicken

When i was around 7 years old my mom told me that we couldn't go to my uncle's house because he was sick. I asked if he was throwing up. (i was deathly afraid of throwing up when i was little) and my mom replied "yah, out his butt" she meant he had the diarrhea, but i took it literally and up until a few years ago i actually thought you could throw up out of your butt.

One day my husband, toddler and I were taking a walk and my son was walking about 10 feet ahead of us when he tripped (on what I dont' know) and fell. Before I could even see if he was ok, or laugh, or do anything the little bugger ran up to me and kicked me in the shin!
Apparantley he figured I was the one who tripped him, from a yard away, lol!

When my boyfriend was young he wasn't feeling well one day. He kept whining until his mom finally asked him what was wrong.
He told her that he couldn't see because there was something in his ear.
It wasn't a mistake, he actually believed it!

I have insomnia and when I do not get enough sleep, I feel sick. My sister and I were both under the impression that this was called "African Sleeping Sickness."

I used to think that a yeast infection was when you ate too much bread, because of the food pyramid thing. If you ate too much bread, you didn't have room for vegtables, fruit, meat etc etc. Once I said to my mom (after she offered me a bagel), "But what if I get a yeast infection?" It was only until a few years ago that I got this cleared up!

When I was 2 or 3, my brother needed his tonsils out. Back then it was common practice for the other siblings to have them removed, too. I'l never forget the day, travelling in the car singing "I'm going to the hofala, hofala, hofala! I'm going to the hofala, hofala, hofala!" My grandmother asked me "What's a hofala?" Of course I responded with what I had been told "It's a place where you get jello and ice cream and pudding!"

My mom and I were standing in line at McDonalds, I asked her "What are those red dots on that guys face?" I am sure she must have answered acne, but somehow I heard AIDS, and for a long time believed that anyone with red dots on his/her face had AIDS. It must have been around the same time as we had the STD talk because one of my friend's wanted to be blood sisters and I said, "no, blood touching blood can give you AIDS!", and her mom was like, "I'm sure she cant give you AIDS, she doesnt have it," and I was like, "no, I'm pretty sure it is just the blood mixing with the other blood that gives it to you, one of you doesnt have to have it first." needless to say, we werent blood sisters.

When I was young, I was terrified of throwing up for some reason, so every time I got a stomachache I would freak out. Well, one day I was annoying my mother so much that she told me if my sense of smell was in tact it meant I wouldn't throw up. Needless to say, I believed that for 3 whole years. I was a pretty gullible child, but at least I stopped worrying.

My older cousin tried to scare me one day by telling me that if people were really tired and they hit their head, they would have a "spaz" and they would begin to try to swallow their tongue until they choked on it. My cousin said no matter what you had to hold their tongue down, even if they started biting you like crazy. Every time I hit my head that year I was terrified I would have a "spaz" attack.
