I used to think that our dreams were reality, and the reality we live in and remember was a dream that our brain creates to keep itself sane in the crazy world of "the real".

My mom told me that you have nightmares because you are thinking about scary thoughts befoer you go to bed and that whatever you think about before you go to bed will be what you dream about. So, for years, I just pictured in my head myself, surrounded by a huge crowd, saying "I love people." and everyone would go "Awww..." I thought of this repeatedly until I fell asleep.

When I was a kid I used to think that I was just dreaming my whole life and that I would wake up at any minute.

When I was about four, I used to believe that when you fell asleep you actually died. Any dreams you had were the afterlife you experienced that night until you would come back to life the next morning. It wasn't that I missunderstood what death was at that age. I literally thought you died.

I remember being able to stay up as late as I wanted to one night and when I looked out the window I thought, "I have GOT to be the only one in the whole wide world that is still awake right now."

When I was little, I though death was going to sleep and never waking up, so I was terrified of having a nightmare and not waking up.

I used to believe that if you got up in the middle of the night the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) would get you. So i was always scared and one night my mum woke me up because we were going abroad and we got to the other country half asleep and i screamed the hotel down because i thought the bfg had got me!

I used to beleive that you shouldn't drink too much water before going to bed because if you did, the water level in your body would be too high and would get passed your neck and that would short circuit your brain.

When I was little I had a theory that while you were sleeping, you were a blade of grass awake on the other side of the world. During the day, you were awake and your blade of grass was asleep.

I used to believe that when you were asleep, you were really dead. Every time I heard about something "awaking from the dead", I was like, "so?! I do it every morning!"

I used to believe that before each dream.... little people in my head would move plugs around and put them into different outlets so i had exactly the right dream. Why I thought little people were in my head, who knows.....

When I was very young, my mother told me not to sleep with the bedsheets over my head because it would make me have trouble getting enough air. After she told me that, I was very careful to make sure I never fell asleep with a sheet covering my head for fear that I would not get enough air and die in my sleep.

When I was really little and trying to fall asleep, I would lay with my ear to the pillow, listening to my heartbeat. I used to think that there was a giant marching through my ear (don't ask me how a giant got in my ear) and if I rolled over to the other side, he would escape and eat me. I didn't get much sleep during that period.
