Do You Ever 'Forget' How To Walk Down Stairs?

I'm trying to ascertain whether or not something's wrong with me. At least a couple of times a week, I have to physically stop when I'm going down stairs and think about what my next step should be. I asked my wife if she did this as well, and she just called me an idiot and laughed, but I'm willing to bet that others do this as well (the forgetting how to walk down stairs bit).

So?

I don't think you have a tumor dude, but if this keeps up, see a Neurologist, ok?
I'm really sorry to hear about your problem, Mr. chagrin. I hope you're okay.

I don't think it's anything like that, though. Otherwise, Mr. Donger would be experiencing similar symptoms in other facets of his life as you have described. This issue seems to be confined to stairs. I think you're right, though. If his problem persists, it's a really good idea to see a specialist and have an MRI performed.

Were you ever raped on a set of stairs by a large, sweaty man, Mr. Donger?

Well, if you're in Florida I would think one story living is more the norm...and easy get, if need, be if it continues to be a problem.

I have to admit, growing up with stairs and in having them in just about all past work spaces before moving to Florida...that I find myself a bit hesitant when there are a lot of stairs...particularly going down and if the angle is steep.

Funny you should mention this. I have this problem occasionally myself, except in my case it'll be while I'm halfway through a step. I'll then kind of jerk around and have to grab the handrail.

I've attributed it to my growing clumsiness as I get already. At 18, I could flow down a flight of steps like water, but as I've gotten older, I've been more likely to catch a heel or something and have to take intensive action to avoid falling. My theory is that I've lost my confidence with stairs.

As a side story, the back staircase in my house goes down to my kitchen, and it makes two 90 degree turns on the way down. The first 90 degree turn terminates in a full-size window whose bottom edge is only about 8 inches above the steps, and I have this irrational fear that at some point I'm going to miss a step, fall, and go right through that window. I would then manage to fall down a flight of stairs, crash through a window at a bad angle that would guarantee some impalement, fall another eight feet or so onto the sidewalk outside, and most likely be locked out of my house.

A couple of years back, we ended up meeting a guy who lived in our house before we bought it. (He was two owners before us, so we didn't know him.) We gave him a tour of the house, and with no prompting at all, he told me that he had fallen down that back stairway once and it was everything he could do to keep from going through that window. It didn't help my fear any.

Look what I found, Mr. Donger!!

Bathmophobia.

Defined as "stairs or steep slopes", each year this surprisingly common phobia causes countless people needless distress.

To add insult to an already distressing condition, most fear of stairs therapies take months or years and sometimes even require the patient to be exposed repeatedly to their fear. We believe that not only is this totally unnecessary, it will often make the condition worse. And it is particularly cruel as fear of stairs can be eliminated with the right methods and just 24 hours of commitment by the phobic individual.

Known by a number of names - Bathmophobia, Fear of Stairs, and Fear of Steep Slopes being the most common - the problem often significantly impacts the quality of life. It can cause panic attacks and keep people apart from loved ones and business associates. Symptoms typically include shortness of breath, rapid breathing, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and overall feelings of dread, although everyone experiences fear of stairs in their own way and may have different symptoms. .

Though a variety of potent drugs are often prescribed for fear of stairs, side effects and/or withdrawal symptoms can be severe. Moreover, drugs do not "cure" fear of stairs or any other phobia. At best they temporarily suppress the symptoms through chemical interaction.

The good news is that the modern, fast, drug-free processes of The CTRN Phobia Clinic will train your mind to feel completely different about stairs or steep slopes, eliminating the fear so it never haunts you again.

Consider the true cost of living with Fear Of Stairs.
If you are living with fear of stairs, what is the real cost to your health, your career or school, and to your family life? Avoiding the issue indefinitely would mean resigning yourself to living in fear, missing out on priceless life experiences big and small, living a life that is just a shadow of what it will be when the problem is gone.

For anyone earning a living, the financial toll of this phobia is incalculable. Living with fear means you can never concentrate fully and give your best. Lost opportunities. Poor performance or grades. Promotions that pass you by. fear of stairs will likely cost you tens, even hundreds of thousands of dollars over the course of your lifetime, let alone the cost to your health and quality of life. Now Fear Of Stairs can be gone for less than the price of a round-trip airline ticket.

Do you do any other "mental math" things in your normal life? I used to walk a lot to get places. I would take addresses and add the digits together to see if the original number is divisible by 3.
I watch the seams between sidewalk cracks, and my step patterns have to be left foot on the crack, right foot in between, left foot BARELY on the crack, right foot in between, left foot OFF the crack, right foot ON the crack, rinse repeat.
