I was convinced that some sort of flying vampire monster would get me if I left any part of my body sticking out from under my sheets at night.
I used to think there were monsters living inside the walls. This belief was validated when I stuck a key in an electrical outlet.
When I was about 6, I went through a phase of thinking that a giant wanted to kill me. I would lay in my bed and I could hear the giant's footsteps walking up the hill to our house. I would jump out of bed and peep through the curtains to see him, but of course, he was too quick for me and would hide.
When I got back into bed, it would start all over again, only he would be walking faster and faster and eventually running to get me. I really had trouble sleeping for a while because of this giant.
I don't remember how long it went on for, but I eventually realised that it was only my heart that I could hear as my ear was pressed tight against the pillow, my heartbeat getting faster and faster the more scared I became.
I used to believe that an immortal old man would climb through my window at night with an axe and cut off all of my limbs. I slept with the blanket pulled up so just my head was showing thinking that the "man" would think he already cut my head off and move on to the next house. He was competeing with the vampire that lived under my bed.
When I was little, I could never go into this one section in this small museum because of this huge tortoise shell. This shell was hung on the ceiling over a flight of stairs going down and I would think it was going to come and get me, so we would have to take the elevator.
When I was small, I always saw snakes coming out of the walls at night. (They looked like thick worms, and were colours like the ones you see from looking at a bright light and then looking away.) The biggest was the KING SNAKE, and the whole room would *shake* to announce that he was coming.
My mother tried to tell me that snakes did not come out of the walls, but then they started coming out of her too. So I decided that there was an invisible switch on the ceiling that I could flip with my eyes, and that switch would make the snakes freeze. In a couple of nights they figured out that I could freeze them, so they went away for good.
When I was very young I was watching a "Friday the 13th" movie on tv with my Dad. (It is the series of movies with Jason, in case you don't know.) There was a scene with a little girl saying her prayers at her bed with Jason hiding underneath watching her. My Dad said to me "see, if you're good Jason doesn't kill you." Scared me for years. Thanks a lot Dad.
My Dad used to always tell me the if I put rocks in the grass, the rock monster would come get me, really he just wanted to mow the lawn without the fear of knocking someone out...
When I was a child I used to believe in ''cuca'' (an ugly, green monster). Every night, at twelve o'clock. if the children were awake, she would get a bag and put the children inside!
I think i used to believe in that, because i read a book (telling this story) in the night very late.
I had a lot of imagination!
When we were a child we used to believe that there were monster under our beds like bad wolf and "homem do saco" (bag's man). The most terrifying monster that we used to used to believe was the "homem do saco" (bags man), people used to say that he picked up the children who didn't sleep early.
When I was a child I used to be scared of a big monster, that in my country is called: Bicho Papćo. It's a legend that people believe that this moster eats little children. My mom and my dad usually told me, if I didn't eat, the Bicho Papćo would pick me up and take me from my house, and after he would eat me.
I used to believe that there was an evil giant lamb living in my mom's office called The Hunk. I thought that it would come and get me while I was asleep, so I just lied awake all night.
i used to believe that if i trod in the lines in the pavement that the bears would come out and get ME !!!!!!
When I was little i believed that there where monsters who would walk around the house and come and kidnapp me and my favorite toys, so i would tie string up and down the stair case so the would trip or get tangled any time they tried to come up stairs. I aalso tied my favorite toys to my wrists and tie myself to my bedposts.
When I was 4, I was convinced there was a murderous lamb living in my bedroom wall just waiting to kill me. Everyday I had my dad "Bless" my room with holy water to protect me.
I thought the boogey monster was a monster that ate boogers at night in front of you
My Dad hat trouble getting me and my bigger brother to sleep.. so one night he told us that Mr scissors and Mr Hammer would come and kill us if we wernt sleeping after 5 minutes of being in bed...
Well.. Needless to say, I slept...
I found out it wasnt true when i was ill and couldnt sleep the whole night... i was so scared...
When I was little, my sister and my two cousins were waiting for our parents outside a dressing room and I guess my older sister and older cousin wanted to have the couch to theirselves so they told us that there was a monster that lives under the cushion and that they would protect us by sitting on it. lol.
I used to believe that if i layed under my doona cover, the monsters could not see me, thus i was safe... I still remeber making sure i was completely covered so that "the bogger man" couldnt find me.
When I was younger I watched this show with my sister about people trying to prove or diprove the exsistance of sertan "Creatures" Only two shows that I can remember, one about a Chupacabra and the Jersy Devil, And the fact that my bed was right next to a closet didn't help, I thought that they would come out and suck my blood and eat my head if they saw me, I, to this day am still afraid of the Chupacabra
