Ever had a curry and woken up in the early hours of the morning with a dry mouth and a desperate thirst?  Hold that thought.  Think of eating salted peanuts and crisps (they sell them in pubs for a reason, they bring on the thirst), wait a while and now think of the craving you have for a drink; focus on the dryness of your mouth.  Now add a mouthful of cheese cracker biscuits to really dry it out.  Wait a while, then hold your nose so you can only breathe through your mouth.  It’s getting uncomfortably dry now isn’t it.  Now put a fan in front of your open mouth.  The tongue is getting furry.  The mouth feels like a carpet. It’s not really very nice is it…

GBS destroys the musscles that make you swallow.  Without the ability to swallow it is nil by mouth.  Nothing, nada, not a thing.  For two months.  The mouth becomes an arid desert, deserate for water, desperate to swallow.  There is nothing nice about GBS.
