Post subject:  Do you get attacked by your closet?

Pre-LBD this never happened to me but one thing that keeps happening to me over and over is an off-shoot of the classic "being startled" symptom of LBD, and thats when I go to almost any cupboard, closet or whatever, I see what I want in back a little ways, I reach to take it but my EFD or something doesn't let me "see" all the stuff in front of it, so when I just try to yank back the item I wanted, I end up dragging a shelf full of stuff down on top of me and the instant THAT happens my EFD panics (I yelp pretty reliably) because where I can only focus on one thing at a time, I suddenly have 2-3 items falling at me I didn't expect. Then I try instinctively to catch/prevent those things from falling and cause 5-6 MORE things to start falling, eventually overwhelming me. The may sound funny to others but its only funny when its not your ass thats getting kicked by it.
