How is this received? I'm a little shy about using it in the workplace b/c I don't want to draw attention to myself. I leave the the O2 in my car and go out there if I need to use it.

So caffeine helps? I thought it was a trigger? At least it is for my migraines. Sometimes I'll get a CH on top of a migraine.

Unfortunately, that's not possible. I've already been raked over the coals for disappearing just to use the O2 b/c "somebody" was looking for me.

Thanks. I know it will. I just may feel like I'm dying before it's over. :-)
