I agree that the cape wouldn't be practical and would draw more attention to us fellow A.P sufferers but the reason i posted it was exactly because i thought it wasn't a good idea as it would be counterproductive to our recovery but also because we would look ridiculous... especially in the Summer as one of you have pointed out. It also shows the length's some people would go to in inventing such a thing and actually using it.
As one of you say... it shows we are not alone as sufferers.
What will they come up with next!?
If i knew the bloke in the article i would totally recommend he attended a workshop if there was one he was able to travel to. I think that would be a more sensible and helpful method.
Best wishes to you both.
