As I was saying, I'm glad I found this Forum... I am so tired of fainting. I don't know how to get my doctor to pay attention... His response is likened to a pat on the head and a You'll be alright.. But I'm not alright... I don't know how to deal with this thing... I have no control... How do I deal with the shame and the embarassment? How can I possibly live a normal life like this? It's so maddening! I wish I could make it all stop... I wish I knew who else was dealing with all this... and how they were dealing with it... I could really use some help... I don't want to give up... but I don't know what else to do...
