as a child, I believed that if I put my legs behind my head, they would pop off at the joints in a great big bloody mess. I'm 17 now, and while I know much more about human anatomy, putting my legs up high still makes me irrationally nervous.

when I was little I used to believe that my pinkie was shorter then others because it was cut by a pair scissors and thrown away because I was told so.

I used to think women go to the doctor's several times in their adolescence, and the doctor adds something to grow their tits from time to time.

I used to believe there were little men inside our bodies that made all systems of our body work. I remember I first saw a illustrative image of such thing in a science book, but I used to literally interpret this image.

I used to believe that women pulled out all their leg hairs with their fingernails. I thought I was supposed to practice pulling out my hairs before I was an adult, and would spend hours yanking hairs out of my arms and legs. It got to the point when it actually showed all the signs of an addiction and my mom had to take me to therapy after she found out what I was doing.

I used to think that when someone said to use elbow grease to clean something that it was actually a product you bought that was mad from cows joints!

Because women could produce milk I thought it only made sense that men made coffee. Now it makes sense why I don't drink coffee.

When I was about 11-12, my aunt said that she wanted me to pull the plug if she was a vegetable in a hospital someday. She didn't want to live that way. I was horrified, because I believed that family members literally had to unplug the hospital beds from the walls themselves and I didn't think I could do it.

from about kindergarten to seventh grade i thought your voice box was like a battery and when you lost your voice your voice battery needed to be recharged.

When I was young I used to believe that tiny people lived inside my body and worked as all the body functions like stomach and liver and when I was sick I used to imagine the virus in my body as a monster. I used to believe that the tiny people would get the swords and shields out and go to war with the virus until the tiny people won. Sorry if that was confusing!

I went to see a performance of The Nutcracker one Christmas when I was about 6. I got sick during the performance and for years after believed it was the ballet that made me sick and refused to watch it again.

You know when you get up from sitting for a long time and you feel a little dizzy and see stars? When I was little, my brother told me that if those stayed for too long, they would become permanent. Every time it happened I would try to shake them out of my eyes just to be safe!

I used to think that the things you get in your teeth were called feelings.

I believed that an allergy was something you were terrified of, I had a friend allergic to dogs and one allergic to bees. I met a boy with a wheat allergy and I laughed and laughed and laughed! The girl with the peanut allergy got me going to.

I decided that only thing I was allergic to was tigers. I believed this until at least the age of 14.

When I was really little (like maybe 3 or 4), I was afraid I might break my mom into tiny pieces if I hugged her too tight. I imagined she could shatter like glass. I was always careful not to squeeze much and to keep my arms kind of relaxed so I wouldn't hurt her. I have no idea why I developed this belief, but eventually I told my mom about it and she set me straight.
