I can't walk upstairs at night - in my house, my friends' houses...whatever. Daytime is fine, but at nighttime I'm scared there's something or somebody invisible and horrifying who's gonna grab me by the ankles and yank me back down the stairs. In my house, this thing lives in my mom's computer room. In other people's homes, he could come form anywhere! The only escape is to run upstairs as fast as you can and stumble into a room, (usually the kitchen as these are often right at the top of stairs) which my brain has designated as the safety room.

Its incredible.. I have exactly the same fear! EXACTLY. The kitchen is my 'safe room', and the 'monster' is coming from the computer room in my mind. I just can't walk up a dark flight of stairs. It terrifies me. I even went so far as to get a place with no stairs!
