Going Crazy.


I am getting close to losing it. I have to have a rag in my mouth 24 hours a day now. I can not control the drooling any other way. And I go through four rags a day. The get so soaked I have to replace them. It is driving me crazy. The only hope I have is I am going to my ALS doctor this coming Tuesday for a visit and a referral to a physician who can do the Botox procedure to hopefully shut down my saliva glands. I am praying this is something they can do quickly. Talk about joy leaving my life, this is sucking whatever joy I had left right out of my hands. I try taking it out. My mouth is very dry. Then the glands start working 5 seconds after I pull it out I have to put it back in.

Aunt Jane, I have written my doctor a very through note describing my mental state. I know I will be dead soon and I need help solving this drooling issue. I will find out no later than this Tuesday what they can do to help me. I will make it until then for sure. But if they can't fix this issue I have zero joy left in life then I will have no other option but to seek death. It is coming soon enough but I can't take much more if this and that is what I communicated to the doctor. Love you very much Aunt Jane.
