Re: Learn to recognise the precursors. Manage the problem.

Thank you for your advice. I recently found this forum and am very greatful for all the support. I do have a question for you. How do you avoid becoming embarrassed by your need to lie down, or your obvious sweating. I find myself seeking privacy at these moments. My husband keeps telling me that this is the worst thing to do. In my mind I know it is true. I have even walked out of a Dr's office to have my spell in the car- alone, crazy I know.

Does anyone else feel this way? If so, how do you swallow your pride???
