I always believed that there were people living under my bed at night, and if I left my arm or leg sticking out of the bed, they would grab a hold of it and pull me under. I could also see witch like faces in the wallpaper,and there was someone living in the wardrobe.
Needless to say I always slept with the light on.

I felt the same way too! I had an all white porcealin face of Mother Mary and I was afraid of it because I thought she'd open her eyes and come after me or something. My main fear though was Aliens coming to get me, to this day I still have that every so often :)
I used to think for traffic lights, that somebody in a little office used to change the green light and the red and yellow. I used to feel cheated when the green light was short, and silently curse the little man in the office.....
