I used to believe that everyone knew me, no matter where I went. I would always be surprised when people ignored me or when my mother had to introduce me to someone.
I really did think that everyone in the whole world knew me and loved me, like I was the most important person in the world!

At the age of 7, I was crazy about the Little Mermaid. My sister and I came up with this crazy theory that we were really mermaids, but one day when our parents were swimming they found us! We also thought that they put us back in the ocean just after we fell asleep, and took us out just before we woke up!!!

When I was young, my best friend and I read Harry Potter. We were intruiged by its mystical allure, and by the time we finished the book, we were convinced that we would get offered places in Hogwarts! Imagine our dissapointment when out 11th birthays came around and the only things we recieved were presents!

I used to believe that it was possible to have an object that completely lacked color. I spent a lot of time trying to imagine what this would look like. I remember staring at my mom's car trying to picture it with no color. I'm pretty sure she was confused by my response when she asked what I was doing.

I used to think when my dad took me places all the buildings we passed were props made out of cardboard apart from the place we went to.The place we went to would have been built by my dad and his friends the day before (of course). I also believed that all the people we met on these days out were my dads friends and they were all acting a part in this and pretending they didnt know my dad and were in disguises. I never thought this with my mum.Must have been a trust issue.

From the age of 3 i convinced my parents that i wasn't a human, i was a karrijack from the planet hotpoint (i got that name off our stove!) and humans hadn't found that planet yet so they didn't know about karrijacks. They lived in the "claus" (under the sheets) and had multicolor babies and talked in very high pitched voices and they carry things, like a postal service! Me and my mum were talking about this the other day and she admitted that for a while she actually believed me because i was so convincing and because she hadn't actually seen me been born ( i was born through cesarian)

I used to honestly, seriously believe that I was a cat. It didn't bother me that I didn't have a tail; that thought just never even crossed my mind. This little obsession got so bad that I began to actually act like a cat and not like a human at all: I would only meow, and would only run on all fours; never my legs, I would purr if someone petted me, (you know that purring thing some people can do with their tongue? that's what I did) and I would hiss and scratch and bite people. After a while it got so unbearably freakish that my mother took me to a child psychologist/doctor. I vaguely remember that I spent the session licking myself under a table, lying on the floor, and hissing when the doctor came near. She gave me some sort of medicine, I believe.
Thank God, I grew out of this! My brother still has scars from where I bit him..

When I was a kid for a short time I used to believe that the world only existed for only as far as I could see. I thought that aliens were creating the world around me just to watch me and see what I was doing. There was a period in my life when I was a very wierd kid.

When i was younger i used to tell every one that i was really an alien and was swapped with an identical "person" when i was little and came to earth. Mum always used to ask how i remembered everything from before i arrived and i told her "of course i did, cause how obvious would it be otherwise and we couldnt go letting every one else know my secret ;)"

I told so many ppl this i fully beleive it myself before too long and was quiet dissapointed when i was reminded of this story when i was older and realised it couldnt be true :(

I used to think that all the human beings in the world had died in some huge accident caused by aliens, and that my parents and everyone I knew were actually aliens who had taken on human form to care for me because they felt bad about having blown everyone up. However, I thought it was tiring for the aliens to remain in human form, and that they would turn back into their alien form every time I lost sight of them. So, I would spend a lot of time running back around corners and spinning around trying to catch a glimpse of the aliens before they noticed I could see them. However, I never caught them out, and I eventually decided that they had set it up so that my looking at them was what made them turn back into human form. That way, they didn't have to think about it.

When I was a little girl I went through a period of time thinking that people didn't exist anymore when I couldn't see them (for example, when they would step out of the room or as soon as they were out of MY eyesight). Then they would magically reappear when God wanted them to come and interact with me again.

I thought I was the only "real" person in the world and everyone else was just there because either God didn't want me to be alone so he created "fake" people to take care of me, or they were part of my imagination.
