When Iwas little I thought I was different because I thought I was a cowgirl and my brother was a cowboy because we always played it then I found out I was not a cowgirl when I was six years old.

When i was 4 up untill i was 8-9, i was convinced i was a princess. I would call all my fellow classmates my " peasants" and i would insist they let me be first at things or kiss my rings. My teachers all saved letters and pictures and stories i wrote , includeing actual assignments about what you would be when you grew up,all stateing i was a princess and would be a queen when i grew up. My mom has a huge stack of those kind of papers to show my kids when they get older :-) The really surprising thing about it is that i dont remember being so pushy and confident. Infact, i honestly can say i dont even remember believeing i was a princess so earnestly. It makes me kind of sad. Like i lost something that was a big part of myself. All i have now are page after page os outrageous claims of gradure and royalty and stories my friends remember from grade school .

I used to believe, literally, that the earth revolved around me. I thought that people started moving and talking and being as soon as they saw me, and then when I was gone, they would freeze in place until I cam back.

I used to believe that I was the only real person in the world and everyone else I knew were almost like fake people. Like they didnt have brains and couldn't think...their whole lives were centered around me, since I was the only one with a brain and could think.

Its a wonder I'm not the most self-centered person in the world

When I was young, I thought all animals were called "Molly"-- my dog's name. I called everything from birds to bears Mollys.

When I was little we had a hot tub that had a light blue light that covered the whole bottom of the tub. I used to believe that if i stood on it i would fall down a light blue water slide and end up in the ocean forever. I was so scared that i would try to swim over it to get to the other side.

In third grade, we learned about atoms for the first time, and I became convinced that I could see individual atoms. My best friend believed me, but my teacher just laughed. I still believed it for a while afterwards, though.

I believed that the world, and most of the other people are part of an alien construction designed to test me. If I pass the test, then I get to be taken to the 'real world'. I guess I haven't passed the test yet!

When I was about 8 years old, I convinced myself I was secretly the adopted child. The reason? My brother and sister both had names that began with the letter D. Mine began with the letter A.

when i was younger, i was CONVINCED that i had a twin sister who went with me everywhere. i always talked to my older brother about this, and one day he "told on me" & told my mom that i was lying about having a twin sister. when she asked me what her name was, i said Bridget. its funny how that became my confirmation name back in 8th grade..

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.

I used to believe that when I went to sleep at night, the whole world was erased, and then when I woke up it was "redrawn" as if in a cartoon all around me...they were always ahead of me making the world as I went.

I believed the BIONIC WOMAN was real - I was so bad my dad took me to Universal Studio's to prove to me that bionics were not real!! Well, we get there and they have a black van on display for anyone to lift (the doors are welded shut- no access inside) I go & lift it and OH MY GOD !!! I told my dad he could leave & I thanked him for bringing me to my real home- Jaime would be there shortly to retrieve me - My dad was begging the curators of US to please open the van & display the counter weights- they couldn't it was welded shut! So I dismiss my dad - thanks & all but go on back to Utah because I am home now! I was 6 or 7!

When I was barely able to communicate (probably about 3), my sister convinced me that if I ate one of my mom's houseplants I would turn into a koala. Nothing happened. Which I guess is good, since I didn't die or get poisoned. Not too many days or weeks (or maybe months since I didn't have much notion of time back then), she convinced me that if I ate wood I'd a beaver. We still have furniture with gnaw marks.

i used to believe that i was from a parallel universe and everything around me was in my imagination. Somewhere in another world I was in a coma, making up my entire life. Dreams were memories from before i came here. When i got sick it was because sorcerors in the "real" world were trying to wake me up.

i was pretty weird

When I was in kindergarten, I first realized I could bend farther than the other kids. I later found out this was called being double jointed, but back then all the kids would say my real dad must have been Mr. Fantastic (from the Fantastic Four, the guy who stretch himself out really far and can literally roll himself into a ball, etc.). I always thought this was stupid, because I knew who my 'real' dad was. But when I was 13, My parents told me I was adopted, and when I asked what my father looked like, they said they never saw him. Needless to say, I was now convinced the kids were right.
