Just wondering, when your DR is really high or just medium whatever, do you struggle going up the stairs?

Yep. I'm assuming you're talking about how the distance between the steps looks bigger/smaller than they are and the feeling of stepping on the steps doesn't feel real? So then you get like a millisecond of feeling like you're falling? That's the kind of thing that I get when it's really bad, in the same way that walls look bigger and feel further away than they are etc. Is this the kind of thing you experience or different?

Yeah that's what I get, the distance between the steps does seem to change and I feel as if I'm going to fall in the next step, weirdest :P

I don't like stairs that are open in between, and I used to fall down the stairs at home becuase they were screwy, not deep enough. Then I passed out once and got paranoid about stairs. So I do hesitate often, but I don't know if t's all dp or all past experience or somewhere in between. I used to have nightmares as a kid where I'd fall through those open stairs then wake up feeling like I was actually falling, made my heart jump every time
