When I was young I was afraid that there was a monster in my room that would take me away and the only way I was protected was if I had a barrier of blankets around my bed and within that barriar I would line my stuff animals side by side around my entire bed. Before falling a sleep I was check the blankets and stuff animals, at least three or five times, to make sure there were no openings because I was afraid the monster was going to take me away.

I used to believe that dummies (as in the puppet kind) came for me everynight to kill me. This was belief was started when I saw the Night of the Living Dummy Goosbumps video when I was about three. I remember pretending to be dead so the dummies wouldent be interested in killing me. This only stopped when I was about nine.

Not really a monster as such, but when I was young I was convinced an evil Egon from Ghostbusters would put up a ladder to my window as I went to sleep. I had to make sure the curtains were completely closed so he couldn't see me.

When I was a little girl, I convinced myself that if the only part of my body sticking out in bed was my face, then a monster would not be interested in eating me. I spent many nights wrapped up in the sheets, w/only my face sticking out.

For a few months when I was around 8 or 9, I believed I was being stalked by an Egyptian mummy. I even caught a glimpse of him once, peering through the closed curtains into the living, but I was too frightened to investigate.

I think it must have started when I would wake up after having a bad dream, and my heart would be beating so hard that I could hear it pounding in my ears. I remember laying in bed in terror because I thought my heartbeat was a giants footsteps, running down the street outside, coming to my house. I was too afraid to look out the window, and of course that just made my heart beat louder and stronger, the giant was getting closer!!! I believed in giants for awhile there, and it happened more than once.

I used to think that my best protection against monsters in the night was to pull my blanket over my head. Now, I'm seventeen and it still doesn't feel right if the blanket isn't on my head

My whole childhood, all the way up until I was probably about eight or nine, every night when I would be lying in my bed trying to fall asleep, if I was laying on my side and the side of my face on my pillow, like if my ear was facedown on the pillow, and I could hear my heart beating...well, I didn't know that it was my heart beating, I thought it was the sound of this army of monsters marching to come and take me and my family away and hurt us and the only way to prevent them from coming was to not lay on my ear like that, so basically, it would be prevented if I couldn't hear them marching.

When I was young I used to believe that the ticking of my clock would draw Captain Hook to my room, where he would assault me with his hook.

Another Captain Hook story: when I was at Disneyland as a small child, I used to think that Captain Hook's sword was real, so when I met him, I tried to pull out his sword. Upon failing, I thought he was really mad at me.

During my first trip to Disneyland as we were waiting in line for the Small World ride, my uncle jokingly told me that there was a dragon at the end of the ride that ate the kids in boat #5. When it was our time to board I was under the impression that we were in boat #5 (not sure if the boats were really numbered). I cried during the entire ride.

When I was little on my dad's farm I would get real scared when I heard a tractor coming. I thought that the tractors were all monsters that my dad and his hired hands were somehow controlling and that the Combine was their mother. When I heard them coming I would hide behind a tree and slowly scoot around the trunk so that as the tractor or combine passed me by, I would be on the opposite side of the tree as them. I also thought that I invented this little "tree-turn" technique.

I believed that our boiler room was a passage way between our world and the moster world. and at night the monsters would start marching from their world to our world, cause I could hear the boiler making noises..and I thought this was the sound of them marching. so every few hours, I'd get up and turn the bathroom light on, and that would scare them and they'd go running all the way back to monster world and have to start the long march again. So if I did that a few times throughout the night it'd mean they never got the chance to march all the way to our world....I finally stoped believing this when I was 9.

Like many children I used to think there was a monster that lived in the cupboard under the stairs! then when we moved house there was no longer a cupboard! so the monster in that house lived in my bed! every night before I got into bed, I checked underneath the covers for the monster, a spider monster!!

When i was little i used to watch my dad play resident evil (a video game) everyday, i used to just sit there staring at it. untill i saw this one part with this HUGE snake that you had to kill and i got really scared of it. that night when i fell asleep at the middle of the night i guess i would get delusional and i would see a bunch of those snakes slithering around the bedroom all over the bed and i would scream to the top of my lungs. after that it happend for about 2 more nights but then i stopped.
