I Fell Last Week.

sometimes when i'm going downstairs i will vividly imagine the horror and sensation of falling down them. this exact thing happened to me last week. i was in a hurry, wearing slippery socks, descending the stairs in my house rather briskly, when suddenly one of my feet slipped and i started falling. i tried to catch myself on the wooden banister, but i ended up skidding the back of my arm against it, creating a terribly painful burn. i also hurt my hip and my ankle. ridiculous.

to add to the situation, the burn on my arm scabbed over ferociously - it is now scarring! - and i received hundreds of questions, all of which i could lamely reply, "i fell down the stairs." this experience has led to me to exercise extreme caution while traveling between floors.

Even thinking about this makes me feel like hyperventilating. I am also terrified of climbing down stairs though up is OK. But how could you descend briskly in socks? You're a warrior. By the way, postsecret.com has two posts about this phobia, which made me realize that I'm not the only one!
