I don't know the answer to your question, or the solution to your problem, but I do know this:
There are no stupid questions.
If you don't know the answer, the only way to find it is to ask.
There is no need to "swallow your pride."
So, I guess the thing to remember is: You are only stupid if pride keeps you from asking the question you need answered. If you ask the question, you aren't stupid.
