Dear Rip,
Thank you so much for that response. It is so comforting to know that you are not alone. I am so glad that you are able to get nourishment through your G-Tube. I have often thought if that is not the answer for me as well. At least some way to get water into my body. The last nine years of chronic dehydration have wreaked havoc on my health. I no longer can exercise or exert myself because I cannot drink when I am thirsty. If I take a long walk, I get dizzy, faint and nauseous. My hair is falling out by the handfuls. My skin is wrinkling SO fast. I am looking so old and it is depressing. I used to have people compliment me on how much younger I looked than I am, but no more. I look older than my age, in my opinion.
I want you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers with your struggle. Thank you for your response and for taking time to listen. I am going to try your technique!! Hopefully, in time, we will both get victory over this. Continue to heal, my friend.
