When I was 7 my cousins told me that vampires lived in Albany, which is the capital state of NY. Since we live in NYC I thought they would one day come and get me, so I slept with a shirt tied around my neck for years.I grew out of this fear around the age of 12. Thanks Guys!
I am very proud of myself for having a very strong scary belief and actually reasoning myself out of it when I was about 7. My older sister and I used to stay up and watch scary movies (our parent s didn't know) and she liked ones about vampires. Well, there was a cemetary really close to our house so every time we did this I would lie awake for hours just terrified that the vampires would get up from the cemetary and come and get me. I used to make my sister get in bed with me and sleep on the outside so the vampires would get her first and maybe I would have time to run away. This was a real fear. Then suddenly it hit me one night, "How would the vampires KNOW I had watched a scary movie that night? They couldn't see in our house." So there was no reason to be more scared that night than any other night, and actually I never thought about the cemetary unless I had watched a scary movie. So I just figured the vampires were not going to come and it was safe and I could go to sleep and be ok. This logic actually worked for me. I mean, how would they know?
I used to believe in monsters and ghosts, and was especially terrified of vampires. One night when I was about 9, I went up to my room and turned on the light, and somehow a bat had flown in my room. He flew around, beating himself against the walls. I screamed bloody murder, locked myself in the closet and immediately peed my pants. My dad somehow came upstairs and got the bat our of my room, but I wouldn't sleep there for a week. I thought the bat would come back, turn into Dracula, and try to suck my blood.
I used to think that vampires hid in my room, waiting for me to fall asleep, and the only reason I never got bitten was that my blankies were magical -- I'd wrap them around my throat before drifting off, knowing that the vamps couldn't bite through them!
i used to belive that a vampire was under my bed, and at night it would come out and bite me so id pull the covers around my neck so it couldn't bite me
When I was about 7 years old, it was late at night and my mom told me about vampires. She told me that if I wasn't in bed and asleep by 12 midnight that they would come and bite my neck and take me away.
I don't believe about the coming at midnight anymore, as I'm older now and have stayed up past midnight. But I'm still scared of them.
When i was around 3 or 4, i used to sleep with my older sister sometimes because i was afraid of sleeping by myself. The only problem was at some point in my early years i decided my sister was a vampire and slept with my shoulder tucked up on my neck so that she wouldn't be able to bite me. I later told my mom my fear and she explained to me that if my sister was a vampire, then so was i. I spent the next few weeks checking for fangs. never did find them
Certain Gypsies believe that watermelons will turn into vampires if they are kept for too long.
However, they aren't afraid of these vampires, as they don't have any teeth.
When I was younger, I watched some movie about vampires (possibly "Once Bitten"), they said something like "Drinking the blood of a virgin will keep you young" or something like that. So, for a while, I thought that the word "virgin" had something to do with vampires!
When my brothers and I were little, we shared a room. We also believed that a vampire lived under MY bed, which was the lowest bunk bed. We didn't want to go to sleep, so my mom said "Don't come in the bathroom, because I am making Monster Spray, and it is a secret recipe, so don't come in." She mad e some spray out of water and other stuff, I dunno what.And it was brownish. But hey, at least we thought it worked.
I'm still in the habit of covering my neck when I'm in the dark, whether it's with my hands or cover...it also worked against the Headless Horseman ^_^
i would lie awake at night, pretending to sleep, and i would wait for a vampire to come. See, i was a twisted kid and i WANTED to be a vampire so i would wait and wait, but they never came.
When I was 5, my brother told me that the bats from the beach caves (which was close to our house) turned into vampires and came up to everyone's houses looking for blood to drink. So every night before i went to bed id make sure my windows were locked, I tied my curtains at the bottom ( I though the vampire wouldn't get through them lol) and i also slept with my duvet covering my neck so it wouldn't bite me.
When i was little i thought that vamires were real as i used to watch Buffy the vampire slayer and i was fine whiule watching it but i wasnt when it came to bed time! As soon as my mum had gone out of my room i used to cover up my neck with my hair and my teddys and i always used to see these shadows walking past my door. I didnt grow out of it and am a bit weary of them now!
As a child I was always afraid to sleep in my room alone because of monsters and ghosts and so on. One particular night I was crying because I was afraid a vampire was going to come in and get me.After trying to convince me, but to no avail that they weren't real, she finally told me that they were made out of balloons and if you stuck them with a pin they would pop. So she pinned my little guardian angel pin on my pillow and told me to pop any monsters or vampires if they came in. Well that seemed to satisfy me for years because I slept with that guardian angel pinned to my pillow forever after that.
My brother and I shared a room when we were kids, and both of us were afraid of vampires (specifically, Dracula). We decided that if we slept not only under the blankets, but with a teddy bear (or other stuffed animal) across our necks, Dracula could not bite us.
I was smart enought to know that you killed a vampire with a wooden steak, but I was a little confused how that worked. Perhaps they got splinters in their gums and their fangs fell out so they couldn't feed any more. It was quite a revelation to discover that it was a actually a stake.
When i was 5 or 6, i had a nightmare where i was in the bathroom without the lights on. I heard noise coming from the bathtub curtain and i got scared so i tried to get out but the door was locked and i saw a vampire jump out of the bathtub and he pushed me against the wall and his face got closer to me and i woke up screaming.
My parents put a night light in the bathroom so i could see without turning the lights on but i was still scared of the vampire in the bathtub. So every night, i would wake my parents up and tell them to look behind the bathtub curtain to make sure there are no vampires so i can pee without them jumping out and scaring me. They kept telling me that there's no such thing as vampires but i didn't believe them.
When I was a kid I was really scared of vampires and I though that my mom would change into one! I have no idea where this idea came from but it was giving me a hard time; at _least_ once a day I told my mother to show me her teeth, so I would be sure that they aren't changing into fangs! And it lastet for a pretty long time. My mom was really tiers with this, but she always showed me them, 'couse I just wouldn't let it go.
I used to believe that if i pulled the bed covers up tight round my neck that the vampires could not get me. Even to this day if its a dark moonless night i will still pull the covers round me.
