If a person acts as his own attorney how does he question

Customer Question

if a person acts as his own attorney how does he question himself
May someone else not an attorney do it.I have a multiple glandular condition so it is likely I will run out of energy and get woozy or at least lose a certain amount of focus. Of course I plan to tell the judge but I don't expect her to be sympathetic.Any ideas?Can I use a recording of my voice to ask question?
Can I "tag team" with my lawyer when I get screwy?
Or anyone else?Can a judge ask my questions?

As a general rule, as a pro se party, you would ask the judge for leave to present your evidence in narrative format, rather than questioning yourself and then giving the answer. That would get pretty ridiculous.

Of course the other side is free to cross-examine you in the normal manner.

As far as involving an attorney to "tag team". That is also possible with leave from the court.
