Re: [IP] RE: Front/End of the line

Well actually yes I do have a reason I can't stand in line in the heat--
  and up till a few weeks ago I had assumed it was because of my
Gastro-Esophogeal Reflux Disease, but the Gastroentorologist has told me it is D
related not GERD related - anyways I black out in the heat and standing makes it
worse - heat and standing NOT GOOD - I ended up stripping down and then
eventually sitting and gulping down water at Church a few weeks ago cause I had
blacked out and couldn't see anything, I'm not unconscious just dizzy and
"blind' and weak and shaky amoung other things. This happens alot in the winter
when I enter a building bundled up the temp change nearly knocks me off my feet,
and a couple times a day when I stand up, but just for a few seconds - it's
partially due to my blood pressure unable to stabalize - at least when going
from lying/sitting to standing - not sure why in the heat but I'll find out when
I see the docs for more testing..

 BUT I know of many people on here that have used the pass simply for their
Diabetes and that is why I'm getting one - that and I don't particularily enjoy
blacking out.
