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.

When I was little, like four or five, I believed that people traveling the other way on the highway or freeway or any way opposite than us were trying to get away from a monster up ahead. So every time I saw a bunch of cars traveling very fast in the opposite direction I would cry and beg my mom to turn around too.

When I was little I hated scary movies and never would watch because I saw part of pet semitery and it made me believe for the longest time that there was dead people under my house and was gonna come to life and get me while i was sleeping

When I was young I used to believe that zombies were real. And so, one Halloween when my older brother dressed as a zombie, I thought he had actually turned into one, and ran away from home for a good few days. My parents had to call the police and everything. I must have been about five? I don't think my brother ever got over the guilt of making me run away and get abducted! I think if I had been sexually abused it would have probably killed him, although being a zombie, it's unlikely he would have noticed! ial

I used to believe that whenever I woke up in the middle of the night, mummys would be standing around the bed, waiting for me to poke my head out from the sheets and wrap me up in toilet paper.

When i was little i saw a show about a farm. At night the scarecrow, very well lit in front of the garage, would come to life and kill one guest at the farm. Well, my neighbor across the street has a very well-lit garage, and I used to close my eyes when i walked to the curtain to close it for fear that the scarecrow would kill me even though I wasn't a guest anywhere, and i was nowhere near a farm. I once bruised my arm on my dressor when i walked to the curtain.

When I was about 5, We lived in Kansas..often there would be a truck that came through the neighbouhood with a loudspeaker declairing a Tornado Warning, and to go to the basement. This Truck had steel bars on the windows. I was absolutly sure that the "Tomatoe" was going to be let loose and kill us all. Then the movie Revenge of the KillerbTomatoes came out. never watched it...

When i was little I believed that their were monsters in my room. I knew as a fact that you were safe from the monsters if you were under the blankets, so I would take three of four comforters and quite literally make a cocoon by wrapping myself in the blankets several times. I thought this was a great idea until i realized one thing, i had no air, so I would make air "tunnels" out of my cocoon. Needless to say i woke up several morning quite lost inside layers of blankets.
