Re: more anecdotal info. for the mix
You asked what to do in case you feel one coming on, and I think I've had enough of them to know :) What you need to do is, as soon as you start getting that nauseous, hot, woozy feeling, get yourself lying down FAST. This'll help keep the blood flowing to your brain and keeps you from passing out. But if you do pass out, at least you'll already be on the floor. I cracked my chin on the edge of a bar on my way down once, and that was not fun. Some people will tell you, sit down and put your head down between your knees - this does NOT work. I've passed out twice in this position. All it does is get you into this tuck position so you can do this amazing unconcious somersault. :) Sometimes, you can be sorta self-concious about lying on the floor in a public place and will be relunctant to get to the ground quickly, but do it anyways...it's much better to be embarrassed than to pass out.
