Childhood fears: Was there anything unusual--not just the dark and monsters under the bed--but any strange fears that kept you up at night or caused you to change your behavior because you were afraid? Why do you think you were afraid of these unusual things? Please share.

Interesting answer! Lost on the bed. Hmm. But it makes perfect sense when I think back to what it felt like to be a child.
That sounds terrifying, indeed! I wonder if you'd seen them in a movie or cartoon when you were very young. Sometimes, we can only wonder. :)
Big mouths with rows of gleaming teeth. Those movies definitely make an impression on young minds, don't they? I was too old for these movies to affect me, but I can't imagine having been a child when they came out.
It is no wonder you were scared.
That is an intense nightmare. Manipulation and powerlessness--the core of many a nightmare.
