When I was little, everytime after I would take a nap, I would wake up scared because I thought it was the next day and I had missed school!

I used to believe that when I would take a nap during the day and wake up past 6pm, I was the cause of it becoming dark outside.

I used to only sleep on my back because I thought I would break my ribs if I slept on my stomach.

My mom, having seen this in many old movies and TV shows, believed that if your hand fell off the bed while sleeping that you would die. Because of this, she slept with her hands curled tight to her chest.

The first time I noticed that I could hear my pulse in my ear when my head was on the pillow was when I was sick. My mom came in and felt my forehead and said "Oh good, your fever's going down." So for a long time I thought that the pulse I was hearing was the sound of a fever going down. Boy, I had a lot of fevers, and most of them went unnoticed by grownups, but I could hear them going down when I got in bed at night!

When i was younger i watched an episode of the x-files where the guy fell asleep and when he woke up he was in some hospital with no arms or legs. So i thought if i didnt cover my my arms and legs completly with my quilt at night the same thing would happen to me.

I used to believe in the sandman - if I woke up in the middle of the night and wiped the "sand" from my eyes I wouldn't be able to get back to sleep

I thought that when you were asleep, you actually went to see a movie about yourself. But later I found out that the movies were just dreams

Once at a friend's house (at about 18 years old) my leg went to sleep while watching a movie. I got up and limped around on it when her little 5 year old sister came down and asked me what I was doing. "Does your foot ever go to sleep Kathy?" She thought for awhile and then said, "No, but my head does."

My sister told me that if you slept with your shoes on you would get arrested... I was always scared to leave my shoes on when I went to bed.

When I was about 6 or 7, I didn't know anyone else in the world went to sleep but me. (Weird, i know) So one night, I woke up and walked into the dining room and stood there, baffled, because no one was sitting there like they usually are when I go to sleep. So, I (for some weird reason) went outside, and played with some frogs. Then I went back inside and fell back asleep in my bed. No one had any idea.

When I was younger, I thought that when people were sleeping at night, their heart stopped for a while to rest, and then in the morning, it started beating again, so we could open our eyes. One morning, when my mum told me i had to wake up to go to school and i should hurry up, I told her that I'm waiting for my heart to start beating.....

When I first learned about the coma, (I was around 3 or 4 at the time,) my friend convinced me that we went into one every night, so when I asked my dad for coffee to keep me from falling asleep, he set me straight.

When I was little, i always thought when you went to sleep, you would die and then come alive again...I probably got that idea when my grandma talked about hw she sleeps like a dead pig sometimes...XD

When I layed down, my ear was laying hard against the pillow, so I could hear my pulse in my ear. To me it seemed that there was a big bear stomping on a murderous rampage and was after me. So than I always put my head under the pillow while pulling it against my head alot harder to feel more comfortable, which only made the pounding sound louder and I got even more scared. I could never sleep and always was afraid, intil I was about 5 or 6.
