I'm adopted and as a way of explaining this to me gently my father told me that him and my mum had picked me off a special baby tree. For years I believed that the parting in my hair was as a result of the stalk which attached me to the tree.

i used to believe that my body was actually in the real world, i just couldn't see it. I believed that everything in this world was a figment of my imagination. I thought that i was really in a mental hospital in the real world and scientists were studying me to try to find out about the world i thought i lived in. I used to pick something up (a pencil for example) and wonder whether i'd grabbed the scientist's pen, or some other object, or whether i was just holding air. I used to wonder what they thought of my conversations too... since they could only hear my side of them. And i worried when i went to sleep in case they got bored of me and threw me out...

i was a strange child...

When I was 5 or so, I thought there was a boy on the exact opposite side of the world. He and I could never never never (repeat "never" a few hundred times) be asleep at the same time.
So when I over slept, he got to stay up late, and when I stayed up late, he got to oversleep.

Once, Sharon, Lois and Bram (a TV show) went to the Toronto Zoo. I had been to the Toronto Zoo. Therefore, I assumed I must be famous since I'd been to a place that was on TV.

My friend Nora and I used to actually believe that we were "Cog People", which we thought up. They were a mix of cats and dogs and posessed powers of those animals. We also believe that we could change it from being cats and dogs to any two animals and we tried so hard to figure out what combination we were.

We also believed that once a year on June 4th our skin would begin to peel off because, as well as being Cog people, we were reptillian aliens and our parents were just there to diguise our REAL ALIEN parents. We also thought that our REAL ALIEN parents had been the same parents (thus we were sisters) and the photographs we had of our births were fake.

We also thought there was this invisible purple goo that would hunt us down during recess becasuse we knew our secret. We believed that if we stodd on a certain sqare of the rubber mat of our play structure, it couldn't hurt us. We also thought that we attracted animals from our real planet. Once we found a wasp on the wall of the school and we were certain that we had discovered a new species of alien ants.

5th graders do the dumbest things, eh?

My parents were always big fans of Lord of the Rings and other books by Tolkien. One day, I stubled across a copy of "The Return of the King" complete with appendicies. I found the hobbit family trees, and was surprised to see my name on on of them (Diamond). We lived on Long Island, and I thought Cleave was another word for Island. All of these things clued me in; I was a hobbit born to human parents, and one day I would marry Pippin. I even told my classmates; so proud was I of my fate. Oddly enough, I ended up married to someone very much like Pippin.

I actually believed at one point we are all living in the Matrix because at one point I saw every thing all greenish like the back round when they were in the matrix ( Iwas trying to sleep and my room was white and it wasn't painted yet) and three other times when wind made a wind tunnel and kept me 4 feet high for 10 seconds and another time when my gaurdian angel saved me from falling down the stairs and another time when I ran 30 feet in like 3 seconds.

When I was little I used to believe that my life was a TV show. I honestly thought that SOMEHOW there were cameras that watched my everymove.

I also believed that TV shows were other people's lives that I was allowed to watch. I just hoped MY show was as funny as some of theirs... and I also always wanted to go live with the Star Trek people b/c their life was cool! haha

for some reason, when i was around pre-school age, i was convinced that i could change into some kind of wolf someday because i could make this really weird sound in the back of my throat. i thought that i couldnt tell anyone, but one time i my mom was talking to my teacher and i let out this weird "growl". i think they ignored me because kids are weird, but i remember being afraid that they were going to find out my "secret"... i hope i never have kids as strange as i was!!

When I was young I vaguely believed the entire world, practically everything I experienced, was a crafted charade produced by adults. I envisioned a conspiracy governed through meetings and phone calls when I was asleep. It was all pre-planned that I would pass a red van and then a blue Mustang on the bus ride to school. When my first grade teacher dropped her chalk while writing at the board, I knew that had been carefully arranged before. I didn't think there was any evil intent to ths, just that the whole world was a make believe situation designed around me. It was more narcissism than paranoia. And I expected that when I was older I would be called into service to pretend for other young people.

Long after I ditched this belief I still would play around with the idea, imaging the logistics and consequences of such a thing.

When I was little I was convinced my parents and sister were spies. I thought they were planning to kill me, so every night, when they tucked me in bed, I always said some weird word like "bumbedoodiledi" or something like that and I thought that was my weapon and thats why they never actually attacked me.

I used to be afraid that we lived in a giant's dream, and I was terrified that one day he would wake up, and the world would end. One day I shared this fear with my sister and was shocked to discover that she also believed that. I still have no idea what led us to think that.
